Italeri 1:72 Heinkel He-111h

Recommended Posts

Another one finished. Eight days from start to finish.
The rereleased Italeri, Heinkel He-111h in 1/72nd scale. Reboxed to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, with some stunning new artwork for the box top.
If scalemates is to be believed, this kit was first moulded in 1974, making it 44 years old. But despite that it holds its own well against more recent offerings, with only the raised panel lines giving away its age.
Built completely out of the box with no aftermarket parts, not even seatbelts. As this is destined to be shipped off to Andy Farmerof the Hobby Company, as a promotional model for trade shows and the like.The parts were crisp and well moulded with no flash.The fit was surprisingly good, with only the merest smear of filler needed on the lower main wing joints and it was painted using MR. Paint lacquer paints.
All in all a really enjoyable build.
