Well folks another shelf of doom kit finished. This one of of the 335 captured by the French by the end of the war. Painted with tamiya paints. Weathered with Mig and AK washes.

Super nice job on all three, Brian (this one and the two subsequent posts – P51 & Corsair). BTW, what is that thing that looks like a brush on the gun barrel….first it shows up on one side, then the other. 🙁

I am not really sure what that is. Looks like a gun muzzle .

Brian, Good looking Do335, I like the French markings. I believe the things you and Craig are referring too at the end of the gun barrels are flash suppressors. The muzzle blast coming off those cannons would most likely really annoy a pilot, let alone completely mess up his vision in low light conditions.

A plausible explanation, Terry….it just seemed unusual that there was only one (and it changed locations). 🙂

You’ve been busy, Brian, and it’s always satisfying to finish something that’s been on the “shelf of doom”, what caused the delay on this one?
Brian Scott said on October 25, 2015
I lost the gun barrel and shelved the project for a while. I finally called Tamiya USA for parts 🙂

I like colors of captured French.

Make a heavy fighter even heavier. Hate to be on the receiving end of a fusillade from them wing cannon!
The Smithsonian had one (VC +PH) sitting in the open(!) at Silver Hill for years. Came there from postwar testing at Pax River. I believe they gave it to Dornier for restoration, and it is still there. Not the cannon wing.

Hi! That is must be back in he ‘States as I was recently in Berlin – Gatow and they said that (I was eager to see it but they had a Me 163 instead so far so good 🙂 ) Beautiful aircraft and model too!

Nice model of the last of the dinosaurs 😉
I particularly like the weathering.
