Tamiya 1/48th Dornier Do 335

This is a great kit with tons of detail, probably the best out of box cockpit I have seen. All from a kit that is now 21 years old.

Cockpit is awesome. Adding the wires on the back of the IP makes it pop

I got the kit assembled, painted and some light weathering done. I will weather it more with the base.

I want to make a factory scene so I will need to start doing some more research on that.

Aha;

 A Pfiel ! You do know that is German for " Arrow"? Now, that said, Yours probably looks better and is built better than the actual Plane! Nice Job !

Thank you TB! Yeah the Quality Control at the end of the war wasn't great for the Germans. What I've read these things were plagued with landing gear failure and the rear engine catching fire.

"Pfeil = Arrow" certainly sounds better than "Ameisenbar = Anteater", an unofficial appelation for Dornier's peculiar fighter.

And based on what I have read about the Do-335, it was still very much a pre-production machine with all sorts of little bugs yet to be ironed out.

Wasn't anteater the unofficial name for the two seater? But yes it was still a experimental aircraft at the end of the war and what is probably it's biggest contribution to the allies it took materials and man power away from the 262 project.
