Revell 1/72 Blohm und Voss Bv 222 V2
While not the largest operational aircraft in the Luftwaffe, the Wiking performed effective service through transporting supplies and personnel. With six engines, it was still underpowered and required a long stretch of (quiet) water before gaining a lift off. Yet, the Jumo diesel engines provided endurance and reliability for the long howls. Operation theatres were mainly the Northern Seas, Mediterranean and Arctic Circle. The majority of the dozen production aircraft were lost in battle.
The V2 aircraft was famous for the drop of a spare tire to a stranded FW 200 Condor damaged during a rescue mission in the Arctic. The temporary white camouflage was applied specifically for that mission.
Revell's Wiking is a very good kit with a solid design. To emphasize the rugged look of this giant, I added "dry" weathering that contradicts the conditions where the aircraft operated, but does the job.
