Italeri's Do 24T flying boat

March 10, 2022 · in Aviation · · 13 · 1.3K


This is my recently completed Italeri Do24 kit. It's the upgraded version from 2013 and has a good deal of additional detail from the original 1978 model.

I made the kit as part of the Imperial German Air Service group build, which you can find at the link below:

The full build is the subject of my initial Youtube video here:

I hope you like the end result and thanks for looking in.

    Thank you for your comments. They are much appreciated. I think this one turned out well and it now sits happily in one of my cabinets alongside my other maritime subjects... :-).
