Revell 1/32 Heinkel he-219 uhu, 1./NJG1 1944

April 13, 2020 · in Aviation · · 10 · 2.7K

Hello. This is my first scale model. A model of a German night fighter he-219 in camouflage 1./NJG1 stationed in 1944 in Venlo, Netherlands. Hptm. Modrow flew on this machine. The pilot shot down 34 RAFu bombers on a plane of this type. The model is very large. O ver 60cm span and 55cm long. S fit is very good and is mounted without a problem. I added two resin kits from CMK to it. These are gun bay and the back of the fuselage. The markings were painted using masks from MONTEX. I invite you to watch and comment.

  1. Fantastic work on display here... I'll bet this model takes up some serious room. I have this one and the Revell Me-262 twin seat Night Fighter in the stash. I have been talking about building them as both are very interesting subjects. Well done !


  2. Big, bad, and beautiful! I've always liked the looks of the 219, great work on this one.

  3. Thank you for your feedback. Yes, it's big, but fortunately I have a lot of space? Execution took me 75 hours of worka.
    PS. Me 264 also waiting with me in line ...

  4. Fantastic build - one of my favorite WWII subjects! The paint work is excellent.

  5. I must say, you've done an excellent job of hiding all the "unfixable problems" that are allegedly associated with this kit. 🙂

    (I saw one review that "fixed" them all - from what I could see it was a case of the "medicine" being worse than the "disease")

    This is very nice. I like you detail work.

  6. Hello Tom. It's an honor for me to comment on my work. I try to make my models the closest to the original, especially when it comes to painting and traces of exploits, but I'm not a fanatic who changes something in a model that looks good. I hope that you will also like my other models.

  7. That's a great model with a lot of detailed quality work Wirgiliusz. Cockpit, internal details with removed panels, surface prep and painting, weathering, even oil spills etc, all are extremely well done. Got myself the 1/48 Tamiya, to be built "sometime" but, seriously, my small "dream" is to build the Revell 1/32 one.
    All the best!

  8. Hello Spiros. I definitely recommend this scale, as I wrote it folds seamlessly, everything fits well. I used very little putty. And CMK accessories look cool. I also wanted to build Tamiya 1/48, but I'm glad I chose a larger scale.

  9. This plane has always looked like a large dangerous insect to me and your great rendition has done nothing to dispel this.
