Building Monogram’s 48th Scale DO-335 Arrow
I built this kit a while back. I have seen this aircraft at Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum/Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center at the Dulles Airport in Washington DC. It is HUGE!
I ran across some photos taken right after the war when the plane was in British markings. This particular plane was eventually destroyed while being tested. I wanted to do an unusual scheme and felt this was really different when the kit first came out. I do not remember having any difficulties during construction. I have always wanted to do it as an air racer. Maybe someday I’ll scratch that itch.
