I was quite suprised at how difficult is was to get this Aircraft.






Although this is part of the Dog Fight Series I shall only be doing the Dornier Bomber. I will be displaying it in-flight on the stand that came with it. At a later date I will be doing the Defiant to complete the display, but not in this Group Build (sorry).







I was suprised to see the manual with colour to show where each part fit. Blimey, the new Airfix revolution is taking place at a pace. Nice one.

The paints....well ... yeah...
The brushes I will use as they are good enough for washes.

So there we have it, this will be out of the box build, and I am only going to get a set of masks and a new decal scheme.

Another nice looking kit you have got here Nigel.

From what I can see in the drawings on the instructions, it looks like a lot of nice detail.
The new style of Airfix instructions look nice and clear too, much better than the early ones

Nice one Nigel, that stand looks wicked for OOB.
Airfix are working their way back into the game nicely by the looks, those instructions are awesome.

Hi Gary, this is one of those kits that Eduard has no PE for, except for some really old b/w for the Revell kit. I've taken a chance and ordered the masking. I want to do the Desert Eagle scheme (wwii version) so a nice set of decals for 15 variations is on it's way.

The rest is out of the box, and scratching from left over PE from other builds in particular seatbelts.

Even before I startvthis build I have found a problem.

If I have the aircraft in flight, on the stand, I cannot have the bomb bay doors open. The attachment point is in the middle of the bomb bay doors when closed. This means to show all the internal detail I will have to have it with landing gear and on the ground. This defeats the whole point of the display.

I will have to have the stand join further down the fuselage towards the tail. This is going to make it nose heavy, so I'm going to have to work out how much weight I have to use at the rear.

This should be fun.

Working on the cockpit this morning and my first chance to have a good look at the sprues.
For a new mold the flash is dreadful and pin marks over everything (even though they have those new built-in tabs to use).
A must for anyone thinking of getting this kit/model is to wash and scub every sprue asbthey are covered in release agent.
The plastic is too thin and soft. It bends too easily. The fit is horrific and the manual (although coloured and redesigned) is useless. I think this whole model has been designed by an eager admin graduate who has never made a construction model in his life.

Anyway this half of the cockpit took way to long to put together. One piece I've had to glue and unglue 3 times to get it in the right place.

Thanks Fabian.

I'm not going to give up on this one. I will be interested how the two halves fit together, just about to start the other side.

Well second half painted, and after a dry fit does fit together, with a bit of persuasion.



Meanwhile crew has been cleaned and primed.



Thank you for looking.
