    HE 219 1/32

    Post  Wayne on Sat Nov 17, 2012 9:07 pm

    It's finally here...the beautiful He219 from Revell has landed on my workbench.

    This will not be built for some time but here are some pics of the box contents:


    1/48 FW190 is on the box for size comparison


    This was taken right after opening the box


    The fuselage halves


    Wings and engine nacelles (note the latter's size compared to the wings)


    Wing detail


    Cockpit detail





    The plastic is unlike any other I've seen before. It's kind of silky to the touch and detail is very crisp.

    Will get the kit along with me at the club next Wed.

    i love the colour scheme for the one with the black underside on one wing. That was also flown by an ace, a certain Modrow if not mistaken. I had done it in 72nd scale. Cool scheme. I am not sorry that i had gone through all that trouble to build the vac kit. I have seen the kit reviews and lots of pics and i sincerely believe that in the 3 years it took me to build it, i did not forget anything out. Besides, mine portrays the early A0 variant which had some minor differences. Go for it Wayne, it is one of the nicest and most technically advanced planes in WWII. Totally awesome.

    Come on guys, do not leave that beast in the box, would be a gem on the show table, and please make different schemes, would be awesome to see now 3 variations ... an all black version would look interesting!

    Read somewhere that this model was penalised by nuts that it has wrong blades, not sure about those but on other terms it is also high marks of excellency on many things aswell ...

    Then you are saying that my Me110 is drab Marco because it is all black!!!! Just want you guys to know that i did not even use black in the paint scheme and it was a total blast to do. It is a challenge but the results were worth it. You should do as i did with the 110's and build two of them, a black one and one with a lighter colour scheme.

    No no... Brian we are talking about the He219 and not the Me110, the Me110 scheme is something else, there were more than one aircraft with that scheme and even I told you to build a Ju88 in black ...But for a He219 no ..and there is more interesting schemes, and if I build one I will not choose a black one no... cheers

    Mela bil-leave illum Marco,ara qed niccajta ta'. Don;t think that i got offended but i don't agree with you, if painted nicely and weathered correctly, it can be a really nice model. A beautiful compromise can be one with the underside and part of the fuselage in black and the normal nightfighter 75/76 mottled uppersurface like the one Chris had built in 48th scale.
