1/72 Airmodel Dornier Do23G

by Bill Arnold



This kit was a gift, and most of the hard work had already been done.  The basic parts had been sanded to perfection so assembly was much like building a Tamiya kit.  All the detail parts came from the spares box.  The hand grips on the fuselage tops are spares box ladders that were trimmed down to match the instruction sheet.

The model is painted overall RLM 63.  An oil wash accents the panel lines.  The l/g and all the support braces are scratched from Contrail strut stock.  The windscreen and the front windows are all scratched from clear acetate packaging. This project took six days start to finish.  Special thanks to Karl Juelch for the kit and the support.  Thanks also to Andy Bannister and Carmel Attard for the additional photos.
