Dornier Cs II Delphin 1924 US Navy, 1:72

It started with a kit but it ended as a complete scratch build.
I stumbled across this kit from a short run manufacturer (Lüdemann) during a model show near Munich Germany. Actually it looked pretty well inside the bag and the price, as far as I remember wasn’t that bad either. So I went for it and brought it full of anticipation back home to build it.
To make a long story short, it did not turn out very well at all! The resin had lots of bubbles and I mean lots of them and some of the smaller resin parts were so deformed that even with a lot of imagination I could not identify their real purposes.
So one part after another was self-made and as already told in the end only a few minor parts of the original kit were used.
Keep on modeling
