Hobbyboss 1/48 scale Bv141B
This is my build of the Hobbyboss Bv141 kit. It's a good kit that goes together well without too much effort, with the possible exception of painting all the canopy frames!
Additions to the model are the 'Superfabric' seatbelts from Eduard, CMK's replacement BMW engine and cowling, and the use of an old Dragon propellor from a Ju88 nightfighter kit, slightly modified to get a better appearance. The propellor provided in the kit has its blades facing the wrong way. Also, the exhaust outlets need adjusting as there are sixteen on the exhaust ring, but the BMW801 was only a 14 cylnder engine.
At the end of the build, I wiped down the clear canopy areas with a small amount of Revell's painter remover fluid which dries very quickly, and then coated these areas again with a small amount of brush-applied Future/Pledge. This provides a clear finish to all of those areas and really allows the viewer to see the interior details at its best.
This build is also part of the 'Imperial german Air Service/Luftwaffe...' GB here:
There's also a short YouTube video build process here:
Thanks for looking in and I hope you like the result.
