The fastest Arrow

January 8, 2020 · in Aviation · 8 · 1.7K

Hello, guys!

This is my first post for 2020, though it was actually finished a while ago. Do335 was one of the fastest piston-engined fighters at that time, as its nickname Arrow ("Pfeil") rightly symbolize.

The model that I built is M14 (RP+UQ), the second prototype of B-2 (heavy fighter) series. It was built OOB including decals. I only added seatbelts (Finemold) and some levers and wires in the cockpit. For painting, I applied actually no weathering, except of pre-shading, because this was only a test machine, never used operationally.

Thank you for watching!

    I wonder why Germany, among other countries, made so many unusual planes in WW2.
