Progress on ICM kit, 1:48 scale Dornier Do-17Z-2….Finally…
I managed to get a few hours on the bench this past week. Got work done on a Hasegawa 1:48, A6M2, (Paint ready), some detail work on another Hasegawa kit, 1:32 F6F-5, "Hellcat", and this beautiful kit, ICM's Dornier Do-17Z-2.
I am find this kit a real pleasure to put together. Very nicely detailed, and with excellently engineered fit. Only a couple places need attention from "Mr. Seam Putty", (I hate that guy) but otherwise this has been an enjoyable build
I used Gunze enamel for paint, in the early Luftwaffe 70/71/65 scheme. Markings will be those of a machine assigned to I. KG-76, based in France, during the Battle of Britain.
Now it's on with the clear gloss, then decals, then another coat of clear gloss, and finally the flat coat, weathering and fiddly bits! Almost there, mates!
Thanks for looking folks, ill post more when she's finished.
