1/72 Hasegawa Heinkel He-111 H-16 "KG 53"


Recommended Posts

Dear fellow Britmodellers,

here's my 1/72 Hasegawa He-111 H-16 in colors of 4./KG 53, flown by Staffelkapitän Oblt. Dietrich Kornblum.

This particular aircraft participated in the "Poltawa Raid", an attack on the USAF airfield in the Ukraine, which was used for shuttle missions.

I built the kit from the box, adding seatbelts from tape and resin wheels from True Details.

Painted with Gunze/Mr.Color acrylics, weathered with artist oils.

All photographs by Wolfgang Rabel.

I would like to express my thanks to the following Britmodellers:

@Sky Keg who organized the out-of-production kit; @G.R.Morrison and @Han Solo for their help in research; and @JWM for color profiles and decals for squadron letters. Without you, this build would not have happened!

Immaculate finish. Very nice. Is the Hasegawa plastic still available in the Revell boxing?

 

Regards,

Adrian

Yes, but only the H-6 variant has been re-boxed by Revell.

Well done camo. That wouldn't have been easy to do. Was it freehand or masked?

Thank you for feedback!

The camo pattern was masked with Uhu-Tac (aka Blu-Tac) sausages.

Very nice result! I like especially the detailing, like for example on small windows around ventral gunner gondola - that is very nice  indeed.

Cheers

Excellent. We don't see many late-war Heinkels. A very nice build indeed.

Please tell me you didn't airbrush those light patches freehand! (And, if you didn't how the heck did you mask them?) That is the most beautifully done He-111 build I have seen in a long time, and the scheme you chose is very unusual and attractive! Well done!

Of cause it was. I don’t know why I didn't think of that. It made an excellent effect. I might do a 1/48 version of it in the future. Your models very inspiring.

You continue to turn out beautiful and inspirational works of art for us to enjoy Roman.  This He-111 is one of my favorites that you have shared with us.  I, like many others here, marvel at your attention to detail and exceptional skill level.  Let`s not forget to compliment Wolfgang for the equally flawless pictures.  :worthy:

 

A standing ovation is in order!!!!! :clap2:
