A ZEBRA STRIPED "DO-27 GRZIMEK" IN 132 SCALE.

February 8, 2020 · in Aviation · · 5 Comments

I like challenges, so when I spotted this model, I just had to have it to see if I can paint the black stripes on it, so it looked like the real airplane that flew over the "Serengeti" area of Africa. It was used to acquire a record of how many "Zebra's" were roaming the savanna.

The model was the usual build and the parts had next to no flashing and went together really well.

I followed the kit plans for painting all the stripes onto the model. I did not keep a record of my hours, but I can say that it was a bit time consuming cutting out and applying all the masking tape.

I did not take any photos of the cockpit being built, nor any images of it finished. I was happy with my results.

      Maybe a "NINE"...it sure was time consuming. I'm upset with myself for not taking photos of the cockpit, especially the instrument panel.

      OH well...it's too late now...RJW

  2. You mean cockpit photos, not canopy...?

  3. When I was on vacation many times in Mexico during the 1950's there were men named Pedro, which means Paul in English. Again..thanks...!
