This seems to have "accidentally" been delivered by the postman. I guess I'll just have to use this as my entry now

I have now bought two more of ICM's lovely 1:72 scale Dorniers. I have a Do 17 Z-2 and Do 215:s B-4 and B-5. It may not affect directly the brave Ukrainian 🇺🇦 company, but at least I try. And yes, I try to build them all. This is my only active GB in late spring/early summer this year - and I try to be a good host in it too!

@vppelt68 I like your new avatar, nice to see someone support Satakunta ;)

 

ICM's Do-17 looks pretty sweet - we will see if I'm able to resist temptation...

I'm a "Porilainen" too - to those that don't know what it means, it means I served most of my national service in Pori (infantry) Brigade. That's the banner of my brigade. It's based on the flag of Satakunta province, a bear over fertile wheat fields and clear blue skies. The provincial capital town is Pori, in Swedish Björneborg meaning Bear castle. "Honour, Duty, Will". Forever Porilainen!

 

My wife gave me a gift card to another Finnish hobby shop last Christmas. I had to use that before I get back to shopping from Elina!

 

Will Harrasteässä be at Pori air show in June? I hope we could meet there, and again with @AaCee26 too.

10 days, just 10 days to go! We should have the Current GB section open by Saturday, and then we can begin posting our build threads. Was there something I was supposed to finish before all that? Good Greif, I better get back to building it! V-P

Looking forward to this starting, I'll take my Do17 kit to uni. It's getting into exam season and I've got a few other builds on so I might have to watch from the sidelines for a bit, but if I find the RS Do17 to be too much of a commitment I'll buy a Mark1 Models 1/144 kit

Hi there

I have an RS models Do 217 P coversion set. The vac form canopy has gone yellow but as the windows are so small I thought I could remove them and use Kristal Klear in its place. Any idea’s if it should be painted RLM 02.

 

What do you think?
regards Toby

Those should keep you busy for a while V-P! I actually contemplated the 17 Z-2 in the winter scheme for a while myself.

If that has been the case, we're so glad to have been able to help and even happier to have you back :yahoo:...but it's actually the Luftwaffe Twin that has done the tricks for you :winkgrin:. V-P

Hi guys I'm after some information, did the Do17's have a red primer coat?

Do you mean the fabric covered areas or the whole airframe?
