Revell 1/48 Heinkel He111H-6 North Africa
Built about 10 years ago.
My dad didn´t want to do the usual 70/71 camo, so it has become a desert version.
Revell Germany kit with Aeromaster decals, Gunze and Tamiya acrylics, Humbrol Matt Cote. Still a good kit, only critical point is the glassnose to fuselage connection.
Found no pic of the original aircraft. It´s a bit of a mystery. Maybe “Error”master has striked again.
According to the fuselage code the a/c was assigned to Stukageschwader 3 in Lybia. But looking at the scorpion badge on the front it was also with Sonderkommando DORA, a scientific/geological/cartografing mission in the Lybian desert.
Also not sure if it was a H or P model, there´s a ProModeller 1/32 He111P kit with these markings.
But it looks good in that dress 🙂
