1/48 Me 210/Ca-1. Hungary, Summer 1944
There are two kits used in this project, Monogram Me 410 kit and Planes resin conversion set. The Planes set comprises of wings, nacelles, props and painting masks. They are of high quality but the fitting of the nacelles to the wing was tricky as the mating surfaces did not match up well. The Monogram kit was built as normal with the Planes wings fitting quite well. Of course the canopy from hell, anyone that has built the Monogram/Revell 410 kit knows what I mean, was the most difficult part of the entire model! This plane had an experimental paint scheme having RLM 82 over spray in the form of large and small mottles to the original camo to dull it down. I used Master barrels for the barbette 13mm guns.
