The Great LSM Twins Group Build ends July 3, 2024 ×

Revell 1/32 Heinkle 219 "Uhu"


Recommended Posts

Revell's rather large 32nd scale 219 finished pretty much from the box with only minor enhancements and scratch. Looking at photos of end of war 219's they looked pretty beaten and weathered so this was what I was trying to replicate to some degree. Anyone who was following my wip thread will know about my methods of weathering and what not but I've seem to of accidently erased the photos clearing some room in my photobucket account, to which I'm a little embarrassed not to mention angry with myself. It's a mistake I wont make again. My apologies.

 

So I guess a quick run down is in order:-

 

Paints used throughout the build were pretty much Gunze aquarious thinned with gp thinner.

 

Weathered with oils, sharp Derwent coloured pencils, Prisma colour watercolour pencils and pastel dust.

 

Flat coat was Testors Model Master Acrylic thinned with water.

 

Aerial wire is smoke coloured invisible mending thread.

 

Added was some wiring in the cockpit, removed then replaced levers with fine wire and white glue for knobs as well as HGW's textile seat harness set. The pitot tube is made from brass tube and plastic rod.

Sorry for ALL these photos hopefully I haven't bored you too much with them. The photos were taken outside on a slightly overcast day as apposed to artificial light at night in the "tin shed"

 

As a side note the nav lights in the wing tips DO NOT FIT. I suggest to fit these during assembly sand, polish, mask then paint. All in all a pleasurable kit to build, I hope I've done it justice but jeez I'm glad it's done!!

 

Thanks for looking cheers Bevan

Thanks guy's appreciate the comments.

 

Rick...Wip photos are still in my folder in the computer just didn't realise that deleting them out of photobucket would delete them from here as well. You live and learn I guess. I was flipp'n out when I realised what I'd done, all that work and I went and ruined it. I guess you could say there was a bit of a following on the wip and I feel I've let them all down in some way.

 

Cheers Bevan

Love your weathering style Bevan, I think you have really captured that dingy look you were after.  Especially the photos showing the landing gear doors and the exhaust area, brilliant work!

Bevan,

 

This is serious business- the more I look the more the more your skills impress me. I 've warched this several times and find new things to marvell at ever time!!

 

Beautiful... you're a master of paint and shades... like Darius Khondi of modelleling, hat of!

 

Cheers

 

Ted
