1/32 Revell Heinkel 219 wip

Hi guy's this is the cockpit of the 219 from Revell. Paints used are Gunze acrylics with a little Tamiya as well. Details were picked out with Humbrol enamels. I replaced the molded levers with brass wire and white glue for knobs. I also added some fictitious wiring for added interest and used HGW's 219 belt set. I found them fairly fiddly but well worth the effort. Chips/scratches were done with Derwent coloured pencils as well as 2b grey lead. Washes with oils, dry brushing with oils as well. Testors Dull Coat for final finish.

 

Hope you enjoy the pics cheers Bevan

Thanks guys comments much appreciated.

 

Harvy, good spot. Its only dry fitted at the moment so no biggy to pull the seats and add a wash to the headrests.

 

Dave, Jeroen, dont hold your breath. Im a notoriously slow builder but will try to keep it moving at a reasonable pace.

nice one Bevan

 

looking very good

 

the pros / cons of this vs the Z-m kit I think are well known now, but I still think the Revell offering will look the part once complete

 

have you decided on a scheme yet (not that there is a whole lot of choice without doing a fair bit of digging and research...)?

 

anyway, looking forward to seeing more!

 

cheers

Hi Nick, a scheme out of the box I think. Thanks mate.

Just added a wash to the leather headrests and while I was at it a wash also to the HGW belts. I let it settle into the detail then washed the excess off straight away as not to discolour the belts too much.

Cheers Matt and Grant. Work has progressed to the wheel bays, landing gear etc. RLM 02 was mixed 50/50 Tamiya xf22 and Gunze H70 thinned with gp thinner. Highlights are straight H70. Washed with a mix of black and burnt umber oil paint and dry brushed with humbrol enamel and white oil paint, I can't remember the humbrol number. You'd think I'd have learnt by now to jot down some notes lol.

Scratches as usual for me are done with sharp Derwent coloured pencils as well as Prismacolour water colour pencils (black and umber).

A little 2b grey lead for metal chips.

Thanks guy's.....

 

Hi  Wingco, no I didn't shorten the gear legs, not that concerned about it, as long as it looks like a 219 I'm a happy camper! 

 

Hi Jeroen, funny thing, the gear legs come in two halves and when I glued them I thought  "How am I going to sand the seem line out?" Well some of the glue seeped out so got a number 11 blade and stabbed at it to produce the "weld" line you see in the pictures beats sanding in my book and adds a little more interest.

Small update but a milestone none the less.

Airframe is pretty much complete, little bit of tidy up around the vertical stabilisers and tailplane joint but nothing major.

The lower nacelle to wing joint was pretty good I used liquid polly to fill the small gaps which worked a treat. The only annoying thing was a join going straight through some hatches on the top join. The joint itself was a bit of a pain but I got there. Re scribed the hatches and tore a little filler out.... don't you just love that when it happens!!

Used some brass tube for the cannon barrels with BMF around the ends.... probably not the best solution but should look better than the kit ones under some paint. All in all this has been a pleasure to build so far.

looking good

 

not sure if you know, but gFactor has released metal gear for this kit  -they had them in at Sprue Bros, but not sure they have hit elsewhere yet

 

i understand you are happy with it as it is, but thought you might as well have the heads up and all that
