1/48 Revell Do 215 B-5

Gallery Article by Paul Coppin on Oct 27 2016



Hello everyone here is my latest kit, a Revell Dornier Do 215 B-5 of NJG2, Giltze-Rijen 1941. This is the new kit from Revell and I must say its a very well fitting kit and was enjoyable to build. :) I added some Eduard bomber harnesses and some antenna wiring, apart from those its built straight out of the box.

The painting was pretty straight forward ,The bonus with painting with just one main colour is there is not much masking ... :) I used Tamiya black lightened slightly with a touch of white, and painted some of the panels with a different shade to break up the paint job a bit. I decided to give the night bird a light weathered look using weathering powders and oils and did some chipping here and there . The engines construction was fun to make and it all fit very well together. 

Well thanks for looking at the night bird and I will see you soon with my next build. :)
