Here’s my 1/32 Zoukei-Mura Do-335. Progress has been slow because there are so many damn parts. It looks more weathered than most 335’s because this one was captured by the allies and shipped back to the US for testing. It will have all the German insignias covered up in black and the stars and bars will be placed on the the fuselage. Lots of work left to do. I found the fit of the props a bit sloppy so I drilled a few holes into the spinner plate and inserted neodynium magnets into them. Steel washers were added to the front of the engine so now the fit s tight and secure. I also added a couple of magnets to the bottom of the front wheel. The base will have a corresponding metal plate so that the magnets will stick to it just in case it tail-sits.

  1. Man it looks great. Just keep plugging away man!

  2. “…The base will have a corresponding metal plate so that the magnets will stick to it just in case it tail-sits…” – now that right there is a unique solution to a common dilemma; what a great idea. 🙂

  3. Coming along nicely! And great idea with the magnets.
