Hello Friends,

This is my entry in the GB. I am not sure yet which markings i will do or put it
in a Diorama. any Suggestions are very welcome.
Although it was designed as a Bomber, and had  some 'bombing runs', the plane was more successful as a Reconnaissance plane. i have a couple of ideas in my head about displaying it but dont know which direction i go yet. I ordered some aftermarket decals and will see. This will be fun.

A jet bomber? Never heard of it (that's because I'm no authority)! lol
Welcome anyway Thomas, it certainly is an interesting looking one! [smile]

These were interesting planes. Like the me-262 or he - 163, once in the air, they were just about impossible to catch. The allies started stalking the airfields these were operating out of, hoping to bounce them during takeoff and landing. That is the reason behind that square part coming out of the top of the cockpit. It is a periscope so that the pilot could see behind them on take off/landing and try to avoid the marauding fighters. This periscope became standard on the B and later. 

Fun aircraft, can't wait to see the build!

Seth

Very cool plane Thomas, hard to belive that the design is over 70 years old, it must be quite a large model in 1/48 too

Actually, it is not that big. I thought that too, but when the Kit came in i was surprised.
The wingspan on the actual plane is only 14.4 meters. I should have gotten the 1/32 version.
I hopefully start with the cockpit today. After a first look it looks like there a myriads of parts and wires to be
attached, and with the greenhouse everything will be visible. Wish me luck, that is a real challenge for me.

I hope so. i started polishing the canopy today. this weekend i will tackle the canopy, which i am
afraid of because it is all visible. Resin and small detailling is not exactly the greatest of my skills.

Anyway, i see 17 entries for the GB so far, Bobby will have the biggest headache to choose. LOL

Thomas, sorry not the plane I was thinking of when I had done 1/200 versions for the Bismarck on my link.

This looks to be a great kit and I eagerly wait to see how it develops.

I am about to be ready to stat this Kit next week. After looking
at the resin cockpit i just thought, what did i get myself into.
This is a the first time i use resin and it looks challenging.
First thing i got was magnifying glasses with a light.

Anyway pictures coming up as soon as i start.

I had some time this weekend and started with the cockpit.
First, get rid of the seamline on the frontglass.

Next i gave all resin parts a wash to get rid of the residue. Cutting them of the sprue was a big challenge. i used the
Tamiya peacutter, Rb prod. minisaw and my xacto knife. I also slipped by trying to cut of the bombside and cut straight through
2 of my fingers.





I decided to give them a black priming and than go over with a 50/50 mix of dark gull grey to catch the shadows in the
corner. let me know what you guys think.














I used vallejo Black for priming and AK-2058 as Basecoat. i also sprayed the PE parts.





For the instruments i painted the flipside of the foil white with vallejo.





For the Instrument rims, i used a Gundam panel line marker, because i dont have a brush that small. the yellow rims where done by dipping a cocktailstick into
the pot, wipe it of a little and stick it in the instrument cut out. It took almost an hour. The parts are very tiny.



The first finished part is the Flare pistol. i had to take the picture through the magnifying glass.




Hope you enjoy, Please leave any comments and critics. I will appreciate it. Also tips.

Fantastic work Thomas, nice detail with the resin and the acetate gauges came up a treat with the white. That flare pistol is tiny! lol
