A zebra striped “do-27 grzimek” in 132 scale.

I like challenges, so when I spotted this Revell 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.

  1. Masking ability level 10 😉

  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……..!
