The figures are finished. These were holding me up. Painting at 1/72nd scale is a bit of a challenge. I finally read a good site that said using shading instead of trying to paint eyes/lips etc at that scale.

Life raft added into the shot.

Messing around, seeing how they will look.

Starting to play with the water effect I will use. I it a bit clear for deep water, but with a blue painted base under it, should darken up a lot. 

[Do-17z-build40] 

Heeelp!

Now that the figures are mostly squared away, can get to building the rest of the bomber.

You can never have too many clamps

[Do-17z-build42] 

Engines done, I practiced rusting on the exhausts, but since they wont be seen in the end, bit of a time sink. Mostly just to try out some techniques. 


[Do-17z-build43] 

I’ve decided the port engine will be the one shot out. Since this happened in flight the prop would have been feathered and not spinning when they hit, hence only one prop bent. Cutting and reposting all the props was tricker than I thought it would be. 

 

I didn’t do anything on the starboard engine, figuring that it was still running when they ditched, but that side would have been up higher and the dead side would have stuck first. By the time the live side hit the velocity would have been low enough not to bend the prop.  

 

I’ve been thinking about this for awhile. I’ve seen plenty of images of props bend, and unbent from water ditch. So it seems I could go either way and be ok. I might still bend them in the future [smile]

I only add a couple images per post, because it seems if I do a single post with lots of images, in never goes though. 

On to the putty stage, just a couple areas to touch up. Had some issues lower wings and upper engines.

[Do-17z-build45] 


Never the right sanding stick around when you need it. 

[Do-17z-build46] 



So next up , priming and then some painting fun.

Your diorama is going to look great with all those figures, fancy craft and deep blue see - and not to forget your very nice detailed Do! Clever thinking with the prop, thinking of the hole story, great. What do you use for creating the water? Cosy workbench by the way... also my needed tool is never where I left it. Part of the fun? ;-)

Nice work Seth. Looking forward to seeing more of what you do with the dio. Yes, clever thinking with the appropriate damage for the ditch.
After your Phantom I'm sure the Do is going to look awesome. Can't wait to see it all painted up. [smile]

Thanks guys. Fabian, the bench is as the locals would say, gezellig.  The workbench is the old games workshop MDF paint station and my tool bins are albert heijn ice cream tubs.   I hope it all comes out as I have it i my head, but we shall see.

haha, the funny part is 1) 75% of the people I know are not native Dutch and 2) everyone says the same thing "I only meant to come here for a year or two....but 10-15 years later, here I am!

Had some time to work on the bomber this weekend, first up, stretching sprue! I included this just because it is the first time I got a nice thin wire [smile] [Do-17z-build47] 


Priming and pre-shading going on. 

[Do-17z-build48] 

Bottom done.

[Do-17z-build49] 

Top
[Do-17z-build50] 

Intersting how much the panel lines are sticking out without even an oil wash.

Oh how I remember fondly the days where I would be at this point and be thinking "Just decals and I am done!!"

Ignorance is bliss [smile]

Seeing how it will fit onto the base. 

[Do-17z-build51] 

[Do-17z-build52]  [Do-17z-build53] 
[Do-17z-build54] 


So Some touch up painting left (tail wheel/guns) and then to get into weathering. 

I'm both pleased with and annoyed by this kit.  The flash and some of the fits have been suspect, but the detail and over all quality is great.  The amount of stencils included in a 1/72nd kit is just an example. 

I think I'll give their new typhoon kit a try once I am though my current list.

Seems like we have the same friends ;-)
Very nice progress Seth! Painting and decals are looking great and bringing your build to life. Also the preshading worked out very good and those panel lines are just waiting to take a wash :-). I like the weathering stage, messing around, cleaning, make it dirty again... one of my favorite parts.
