A photo of this aircraft DL+AQ inspired me to switch from jet aircraft to World War 2 when I was still a young teenager and I have always wanted to build one. I used the Airfix kit not the better Revell one because I have six of the former (ok, ok I also have 8 Revell ones) and frankly did not know what to do with them. The way I see it, if I am going to chop off a lot of parts might as well use the oldies.
Conversion consistes of cut down fuselage shortened by about 30mm, lower tailfin & rudder, different engines and cowls, reworked prop blades, reshaped nacelles, new flaps, different glazing throughout, different exhausts and many many other little oddities like this.
The walk-lines were a nightmare and took around two weeks to do! I consulted Marco about the colour as this appeared very light in photos. Now normally, Luftwaffe walk lines are red but there are examples of white, grey, and brown. I opted for red and they came out perfectly - see the black & white photo.
Anyway, hope you like.
