More Do-335 Madness
This article is part of a series:
Some progress on the 1/32 Zoukei-Mura Do-335. Encountered a few problems that arose from the brittle nature of the clear plastic. One of the wing fillets cracked and broke off in two places and had to be repaired. The landing gear is coming together quite nicely.I added weights to the leading edge of the wings in order to prevent it from sitting on its tail. I got a lot of c**p from people telling me that it wasn’t going to work. Z-M recommends 50g or weight at the nose, but my calculations showed about 57g. I re-calculated the amount for the leading edge and added 20% more for a total of 127g. It works just fine. The instructions call for the very hideous RLM green for the gear wells and bomb bay, but I chose to make everything a natural metal finish since the plane at the Air and Space museum is that way. I painted the gear a mixture of Gull Gray, RLM 66 and white.
