Heinkel 70 1/48 AZ kit redux
My wife gave me an early Christmas present, a new digital camera. I wanted try it out but I have no new work to photo so I decided to shoot one of my favorite old builds. This is one of my favorites for 3 reasons. First it is a kit that one doesn’t know if you can pull off a decent end result. Secondly I like the look of this plane with it’s 30’s art deco look and third I love Spanish Civil War camo schemes. Thinking I’ll only ever build one of these I decided to do some extra work to it. This came in the form of scratch cockpit additions, fuselage entry door, vac canopies and wing tip navigation lights. The MG15 gun is by Vector.
Well I guess another one of these kits in the form of the He 170, a radial engine version of the He 70, is in the future for me as I just picked up the Admiral kit which is based on the AZ one. Hungarian markings are a definite with this one. I’d like to wish a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!
