1:48 Scale, ICM kit of Dornier’s Do-17Z-2, “Flying Pencil”
Up until recently, the only kit of the Do-17 in this scale, was the old Hobby Craft kit, which really was not a good representation of this famous German bomber. Then came Classic Airframes, which although MUCH better, was a really tough build, and only a really experienced modeler, would have any hope of a decent result, should they decide to tackle it.
ICM, has come out with a real gem, with their series of early Do-17’s, and this will not disappoint. It builds well, with little to no fuss. It has very nice detail for the OOB builders to be happy with, and offers a really good starting point for the “Detailers” to go off the rails with. A decent kit, and I highly recommend it.
This model represents and aircraft of, III Gruppe, Kampfgeschwader 76, (KG76), baed in France during August and September, 1940, during the Battle of Britain.
Model is finished in Gunze Mr Color enamels and Model Master enamels. Decals are from the kit and the spares box…(I always wanted to do the pooping devil)
