AModel D.H. Dove in 1/72


Recommended Posts

Colomba finita.
I just finished the AModel Dove.
I still have to paint the two figures to finish off the diorama, but the airplane is done. This is not an easy kit, if you don't know it. Think of it as an early Pavla kit. Pebby surface, soft details, inconsistent panel lines, but it looks the part. The decals are very fragile and almost don't have any glue. Many small details are missing.
I scratchbuilt the basic interior, too. A full report will follow soon on my page.

Please, don't show me photos of the Airfix Heron for a while...
Cheers

 

(cannot post the pics - don't know why).

It's good to see you on Britmodeller, Rato.  I've long admired your work and have learned many useful skills from your website.

 

The picture posting process is slightly more complex on this forum than some others.  I followed your links, beautiful model of an obscure but attractive subject.  The diorama base should show it off to good effect.

That's gorgeous!  Thanks so much for sharing!  Looking forward to more shots of this beauty.  You have the basis for a compelling diorama in the works, too!  How did you fabricate those steps?

Thanks Jackson... I'll figure it out.

Gorgeous effort Rato!

 

However, the lower half of the noseleg is backwards. The wheel should drag behind the scissor link.

 

It should look like this: Diecast picture

 

Cheers!

Scott, it could be unlocked to move the ac on the ramp:

Really nice clean build, one of my all time favourite aircraft, I built the Amodel kit and found it relatively easy, although the nose is a bit to pointy, one thing that some modellers miss is that most Dove/Devon aircraft had asymmetrical rear horizontal tail surface except for really early models.

Sorry guys, I tried everything. Even html scripts. The photos are in my webpage host, but when I use the 'insert image from URL' it turns pink and nothing happens.
Here are two more pics of the finished Dove diorama.

That's superb, really excellent model and the figures look brilliant!

 

Only thing, are the two pics of the finished diorams the same, as they look like to me? Would love to see some more pics from different angles.
