Gallery Article by Geoff "JugJunkie" on Nov 25 2010


This was not an easy kit to build by any means.  There have been numerous articles outlining the major issues with building this kit, but regardless of these I have to say the end result is very nearly worth it….but not quite!  Major fit issues included a) Engine nacelles; b) Exhausts; c) Gear doors and d) observers machine gun (which was eventually left off).  The not so major fit issues were a) Cockpit and b) Wings.  Besides that the most surprising issue for a kit this expensive, was the misalignment on so many parts.  I can only advise folk with this kit to get some good building practise in before you attempt this one.

The beauty of this kit has got to be the office.  It is an absolute gem of scale kit engineering and you will go a long way to match it in terms of fit and finished result!! My model was finished off with a mix of Model Master Acrylics and Enamels as well as Warbird Acrylics.  Weathering was for the most part Artists Oils and Windsor and Newton pastels.

The markings of this aircraft are that of an aircraft belonging to Oblt. Rudiger Proske and BordFunker. Hans Mobius.  I selected this particular one because on the 18 August 1940 (My birthday just plenty years later) this aircraft was shot down and crashed in Lydd Kent, both airmen became prisoners and survived the war.

Beware the unprepared traveller for there be Dragons here.
