Up until recently, the only kit of the Do-17 in this scale, was the old Hobby Craft kit, which really was not a good representation of this famous German bomber. Then came Classic Airframes, which although MUCH better, was a really tough build,[...]
A little while ago I posted an article on the new 1/48 scale ICM He-111. In that article I mentioned doing another review on the Do-17.
This will give me an opportunity to try out the new format that Martin and his staff have been working so[...]
I managed to get a few hours on the bench this past week. Got work done on a Hasegawa 1:48, A6M2, (Paint ready), some detail work on another Hasegawa kit, 1:32 F6F-5, "Hellcat", and this beautiful kit, ICM's Dornier Do-17Z-2.

Here are a few photos of the new 1:48 ICM Dornier 17 Z-10 nightfighter. This will appear in a full article in MAI in the next few months. I have to say this was not an easy build, from the engine cowling supports being totally wrong, issues with[...]

The completed model of Airfix's newly moulded Dornier Do17 which was voted for the Keep Calm and Vote Wisely
Have to admit I really enjoyed building this and am surprised at the level of detail involved with the kit. However the cockpit as som[...]
I've been looking at this kit for a while and managed to see it in a small model shop in town. Just thought I'd do an inbox review for everyone.
Although small it has plenty of nice detail
This is the Hobbycraft Canada 1/48th Dornier Do-17Z, German medium bomber. Because the earlier version had a particularly narrow fuselage, it was sometimes called the Flying Pencil. I think the Z transformed it into the Tadpole!
Though the fas[...]
