Default 1/48 Do-335 'Arrow'

Well, after a little hiatus, my mojo is back! Sitting above the desk has been a Tamiya Do-335 awaiting patiently, and now it is finally being spooged together.

I'll be using some extras, such as an Eduard PE set for the cockpit and gear wells, resin exhausts and wheels.



I used some of the PE in the gear bays, but substituted thin wire when the thin PE became too much for my meat hooks to contend with.





The seat, with its arms up in surrender.


...wiring the dash.




And all squeezed together.


Doing a little more work in the bays, then I'll start painting the interior bits.

All for now!

Thank you!

I did a little work on the wheel bays, adding some piping here and there. It's close to an image I found on line, but definitely not exact!

First I drilled some stating holes.


Then I got some scrap to fill in some detail.


Then I did this, before I got tired of it and said that was enough!


Now I need to get some paints and start coloring this stuff.

Update time! The parts still needs some scuffing and wearing, but they're almost ready to go.



One of the PE levers pinged off into the aether and was replaced with a bit of wire.






The instrument panel is the kit part with the detail sanded down, the kit decal applied and sealed under a clear coat, and then pre-painted PE placed over that.



Once dry, I touched up between the PE pieces with the RLM grey.



The dials aren't exactly centered, but it will only be viewed once in place from above anyway...

And from behind.



A little scuffing to be added and then this will be closed into the fuse!

Wow! That instrument panel is a masterpiece on it's own!

Default Re: 1/48 Do-335 'Arrow'

Thank you, Admiral! It's a few steps forward and a few steps back, as you know. Lost a few PE pieces and some cockpit levers that had to be replaced with wire, but still good.

I couldn't resist a test fit.

Default Re: 1/48 Do-335 'Arrow'

Got a little more work done today. The wings are going together. After they dry I'll sand their edges and do the wingtip lights.



Also doing a little gear work. smoothing out some badly placed depressions...



Then onto finishing the cockpit. The last to be done were some fabric seatbelts, which was a fortunate choice. I found a pic on-line that has the shoulder straps wrapped up behind the headrest, and the regular PE belts would have been a pain to deal with. I think having them tucked up is also a nice change from most other builds that have them mostly draped down.

Another happy accident was the crackled paint. I have no idea why it did that, but now it looks very much like a padded head rest.






And really being careful to NOT knock the table right now!!



Happy modeling!
