Henschel Hs129 B2

Recommended Posts

Latest one finished is Italeri's Henschel HS129 B2 in R1 weapons fit. Nice little kit which looks like a scaled down version of Hasegawa's HS129, built OOB as a Romanian aircraft of the 41st assault group, Genichesk, 1943. The Romanian aircraft were never given the 30mm belly cannon so just had the 4 50kg bombs. I used Humbrol maskol for the layout the snow camo as an experiment as I did'nt fancy hand painting or using tape to mask up, I think it worked pretty well. The engine nacelles are a poor fit and needed additional work to get on straight. Painted with Tamiya and Xtracylic paints and no weathering as I didn't want to mess up the snow camo. As usual all comments welcome.

Nicely done, Neil. Did painting that camo give you a headache?

Very impressive- I can't remember the last time I saw the 1/72 kit built, just a lot of the 1/48 ones. Was your 1/48 kit Hasegawa or Esci? I'm not well-versed in the bigger scale kits.

Neat. I've never built one of these, but really fancy one now.
