  1. That is very cool

  2. You are the master of the unusual rarely seen aircraft. And difficult kits as will. You are a true modeler with patience. Excellent work. Great paint work and photos as well. This is the first time I have seen this subject built in any scale. Lot of He-111 wing heritage on that bird. Thanks for sharing such a rare sight.

  3. You can see the evolutionary lines starting to take shape. This is unusual, interesting work, Dale. Really nicely done, also, with excellent paint work.


  4. Love your work. Great job. ?

  5. Excellent! I have this kit and therefore know how medieval it is. You achieved very nice result with very little.

    • Thanks Aleksander. I like your description medieval, it describes this kit well. I've got the Admiral kit of the He170 in the stash. I'm not in any hurry to start it!

  6. Good looking "Rayo" Dale, never seen this kit done before. Looks good.

  7. Nice work, Dale. That’s the first one I’ve seen built and you did a marvelous job.

  8. Great work on a very ungainly-looking bird, though as noted, you can see the genesis of the 111 in the planform. May have to add a 1/72 version to my stash!

  9. Thanks Greg, the ICM kit in 1/72 looks good from what I've seen in photos on line. It certainly will be more refined than the AZ kit.

  10. I'll echo that I have never seen this pig of a kit done better. Truly amazing result!

  11. Wow !

    I don't think I have ever seen another one of these built up before. Lately you have been posting up some very obscure stuff and like your other builds this one looks fantastic.

    You checked all the boxes with this one !

    Spanish Civil War markings
    He-70 aircraft ... rare
    1/48 scale
    Excellent paint and construction

    All of this equals two big thumbs up, a pat on the back followed with a "well done buddy !"

    Plus a "liked" button was pressed.

    Thanks again for taking the time to share your work with us.
