Tamiya 1/48th Do-335 Defense of the Reich
May 25, 2013 in Aviation
As a follow up to my Do-335 I built another one of these model kits. This time I thought I would do it up as a defender of the Reich in the last days of the war.
I added drop tanks and also scratch built the boarding ladder. I thought it would make an interesting addition to the model. The real ladder folds up and fits into that little compartment under the wing root.
The cockpit was built using only what was supplied in the kit, except for the set of Eduard seat harnesses. These Tamiya kits are just incredible, when you put them all together. It was fun, and headache free.
I don’t have any more of these in my stash but would build another one of them any time.
