More work on the Do-335. I haven't counted how many part make up the engines, but it's a lot. So far, I've probably assembled a little over half the total parts. There are tons of hoses, pipes, ignition stuff, exhausts and motor mounts left to install. The engine halves even have pistons molded into them, but I decided not to show them as there are no crankshafts provided. I noticed after I took the photos that the paint has chipped and there are some scratches here and there. These will all have to be retouched once everything is assembled.

  1. I trust the cowl(s) will be displayed in the open position to reveal all this detail. 🙂

  2. Great work, George.
    The chrome effect of the pipes is very convincing. Let me guess: Mr. Paint? Alclad2?

    Also, last time I counted the 335 comes with two of these. Will you bring both engines up to that level of detail?

    • Hey Johannes- Thanks.

      Yes, the plane had 2 DB 603s and Z-M supplies them both with alot of detail, which I , because of my obsessiveness have to complete. Much of it won't be seen so I might put one engine on a stand.. I used AK Xtreme metal and Alclad. I'm painting the pipes with various shades including polished aluminum, gunmetal, steel, magnesium and dull aluminum.

  3. George, your eye for detail has few peers. Very, very, well done.
