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

Hello. This is my first 1/32 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 !!!

    “liked”

  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.
