Hello every one. I finished this part of the kit last night and I would almost consider another lit kit all by itself and it seems like every sub-assembly in this kit is a mini kit. I kinda went nuts weathering it, but most of it won’t be seen so I’ll consider it practice.

  1. Let me ask you a question ………….. Just how hard was it to get Dornier to agree with allowing you building rights to produce another Arrow ??? Looks to me like that’s exactly what you are doing here…………….. 🙂

    Absolutely stunning………………

    Well done and
    “liked”

  2. paint skills beyond belief…man don’t even put a plane around that

  3. Thanks, guys. This is a fun build.

  4. A shame all that spectacular workmanship will be hidden from the viewer. 🙁

  5. Gorgeous! Simply gorgeous!

  6. Looking Fantastic, your painting is simply outstanding.

  7. I wonder how you painted the silver straps on the fuel reservoir. These raised details are always a challenge which I recently faced at a Ford lettering on a cylinder head. My answer was: painting the whole thing silver first, then applying the black and polishing it off on the letters.

    • Hey Johannes- It was a lot easier than I thought it would be. First, I painted the tank with various shades of black- dark and light splotches, but keeping it subtle. Lighter shades on top, darker on the bottom. The finish was way too matte so I lightly sprayed gloss clear over the entire thing. I carefully masked off the black with Tamiya tapa and masking solution and painted the straps with aluminum.

  8. Looks Fantastic

  9. Much like building a stick and tissue model, when you’re done with the inside it almost seems a shame to put the covering on! A photo etch airframe with no skin would be awesome here!

  10. George, every time you post an update from your Pfeil I tend to repeat myself… just amazing, the painting really pops up the details, very realistic sir

  11. Magnificent detail and coloring. Looks like a museum piece.

  12. Thanks, gentlemen. I really appreciate the comments. I sealed everything up inside the fuselage and a lot of the detail is still visible. I’ll update that later.

  13. That is pretty impressive mate! Is there anyway you can do a cut away cross section in the fuselage?
    Might be easier said than done mind!
