In a follow-up to yesterday's post, here are some images of the Dorniers cast by Museum Miniatures:
Clean sculpt and clear, etched details. Overall a very crisp, tidy model.
Belly up! Conveniently, the center of gravity was right below the wings. Thus, the hole for the 3mm super magnet wound up smack bang in the middle of the bomb bay doors! Due to the tendency for the drill to wander when using such "large" diameter, I always drill a 1mm guiding hole first. Though the image does not show the detail perfectly, everyting up to and including the belly rear gunner nacelle are beautifully rendered.
Depth-of-view on the phone camera is abhorrent, yet this should be sufficient to give an idea of the clean lines of the aircraft.

The distinctive profile that earned the Do17 the nickname "Fliegender Bleistift" (flying pencil).
Bonus shot - my last five WIP Spits. Only decals and varnish to go!
Sticking with the phone camera for now on WIP images to keep this blog low treshold - though will dig out the digital cam for finished projects. Promise!
