Monogram He-111 in 1/48th
I build a lot of Luftwaffe aircraft and the He -111 was a mainstay of the German bomber arsenal prior to and through out the war. I really like its lines, and while not as grand as the Condor, or as versatile the Ju-88 it proved to be a work horse from the Spanish Civil war until the wars end.
This is the Monogram kit from the 1995 Boxing. I built the kit out of the box, and have to say it was a better than average Monogram. The fit in general was better than average although there were a few finicky issues. The cockpit is very well detailed and with a good cleaning and a dip in future most of that detail is visible through the canopy.
I built it fairly clean with only mild weathering and generally like the overall finish. The kit has good lines and I think displays well.
I have a good friend of over 45 years who is a model fanatic even more so than me. When I told him I had discovered about an all NEW He-111 kit that I was going to break my self imposed moratorium on new kits, he prevented me from breaking my pledge to myself. THANKS Ed! You are the BEST! I plan on having it done for the Nationals in Las Vegas in 2021.
