Heinkel He 111 H-22
November 28, 2012 in Aviation
Built from the Monogram/Revell kit. Lot’s of fit issues with much filling, sanding, re-scribing. Managed to lose 2 of the guns inside during construction. Got lots of dust in the glass nose from all the sanding. When I attempted to tap the nose to try and clear it, the nose fell off. Yay! Still, to paraphrase Tommy Lee Jones in MIB, I got my guns back. Nice interior detail which was further enhanced with Eduard coloured etch. This model featured my first attempt at a Luftwaffe bomber splinter scheme, which I then (nervously) obliterated with my first attempt at freehand mottling. I think that with all it’s flaws, the final product looks very nice.
