Dornier Do 217E-5
1/48 scale Dornier Do 217E-5 is available online from Squadron.com
Here are pictures of my Pro-Modeler Dornier Do217E-5.
This model is a 'must have' for all Luftwaffe fans who
build 1/48 scale aircraft.
It went together very nicely indeed and I used no filler
at all on the model. The model was completed in about 2 weeks, working
only a couple of hours nightly.
I painted mine slightly different than the instructions
suggested. Instead of painting the under surfaces RLM65 I painted mine
RLM66, just to get a different looking finish. I am very pleased with
the overall effect of the 'night scheme', the RLM66 doesn't look too
dark, thus making the detail stand out more. The rest of the paint
scheme is as per standard (ie: RLM72 & RLM73).
I used the kit decals except for the underwing crosses
which came from the spares bin. I also didn't build the model as a
missile carrier, opting instead to make it a normal bomber.
I can highly recommend this kit to all Luftwaffe fans
out there, it's expensive, especially if you are paying in South Africa
Rands but it is worth every cent!
