Hello every one. I finished this part of the kit last night and I would almost consider another lit kit all by itself and it seems like every sub-assembly in this kit is a mini kit. I kinda went nuts weathering it, but most of it won't be seen s[...]
The never-ending saga of the Zoukei-Mura Do-335 continues. There are a lot of parts to this thing. The instructions for the engines alone are 13 pages long! The cockpit and engines are finally done and the level of detai is tremendous. There is [...]
I finally got around to at least finishing off the forward engine of this beast. There are a ton of parts on these little gems. This is one of the best non-resin engines ou there. The block was painted using a variety Mission Models Paints that[...]
More work on the 1/32 Zoukei-Mura Do-335. I haven't counted how many part make up the engines, but it's a lot. So far, I've probably assembled a little over half the total parts. There are tons of hoses, pipes, ignition stuff, exhausts and motor[...]
Here are a few shots of the engines. This is a great kit with lots of detail and perfect fit. I'm probably weathering and distressing these a bit more than they should be, but I think I'll finish this kit as a well-worn, well used "1946" version[...]

Next on the oddball list: This aircraft was captured by the Americans and turned over to the British. A nice kit that can be built as a single or two seater by virtue of inserts fitted over the spine. I had some fit issues here but nothing that [...]
Another What-If? - Luftwaffe1946: After much drawn out fighting, the Germans finally capitulate.
Leaving behind items such as this D0-335 much abused & repaired Arrow. Replaced wing & lower fin in case you hadn't noticed!
Have fun &[...]
