July 30 update on the 111...

Being an early Lindberg model, the details are pretty sparse. Not much in the cockpit...

I decided to model the Heinkel with the engine cowlings glued in place, so no need to paint the engines. HereI just painted the exhaust...

  

I then proceeded to the landing gear. I first paint the interior of the wheel wells...

With the wheels and gear complete, the wing halves can now be glued together...

Looks very good, Mark.  Funny how they chose more detail in the engines than in the cockpit.  Nice work with the landing gear.

I have the 111 painted and glossed, ready for decals. The kit didn't come with the tail swastikas and this being a 1/64 scale kit, aftermarket decals are virtually impossible to find. So I'll have to improvise here...

Nice work, Mark!  Great smooth finish.  Should take decals pretty well when you find the right ones.

1939-40 Europe. What stands out in my mind is Dunkirk and the Battle of Britain. Leading the fight for the Germans is the infamous He-111.

Here is my classic Linberg model ready for battle...

And now onto the 1941 and 1942 World at war builds. I'll post my entries on those respective threads.

Very nice, Mark.  You did a great job finishing off this vintage kit.  Extremely nice finish!

Do you have a preference for the finish-build photo?

Thanks for taking part in the GB.  I look forward to seeing the other entries you're working on.

No, I don't have a preference but I think the second picture or the last one might be best. I leave it to you expert discretion.

Thanks for noticing!!!  Big Smile
 
"Expert discretion" leads me to agree about the second photo.  It shows a little more of the overall plane, including the rear fuselage than the last one.  Both are nice, but. . .!
 
Yes
