1/32 HK Dornier Do335 B-2 converted to a B-6

Gentlemen,

 

  I am taking a break from the Italeri Mirage by working on the HK  Do335.  I like the Luftwaffe night fighters, therefore I decided to convert the kit from a B-2 to a B-6.

 The only rear tub picture I was able to find was from a 335 that the French flew and it did not have any radar equipment.  The model is going to be a what if because I do not know if in reality any B-6 was actually constructed. For the build I am doing a little scratch build, Eduard wheels and photo etch. 

  Please feel free to suggest and comment, as I am very​ much shooting from the hip on this one.

Here some new pictures of the landing gear.  The nose gear does not have the hydraulic actuator to extend/retract the strut.  I am puzzled by HK omission, but I had to fabricate one based on a few references and by looking at the instructions on the ZM Do335.0CFED3B3-CCFB-47E6-A55A-8636A6D5B1E7_zps

Hello

 

 

Amazing job!

 

You can do neitherless a "what if" very nearby the " 1945 .08 reality" in Mengen like the M14 nr 230014 with the radar operator and the fug220 radar aerial, and the mk103 in the wings ...but i think you would be more a reasonable assumption to do the M17 nr 240013...without the mk103 but really from the first batch of the B6 series...but there are only my conclusions...

 

I will follow your build with interest very good skill....go on Paulo!

Thank you guys, I really appreciate your comments.  Regarding the build, I will do the B6 destroyer with the 103s.  Here some more photos, this time the landing gear.

More painting.

 

I made the markings using Tamiya masking tape sheet, which is thin and great for this kind of projects.

Then I proceeded to place the marking masks correspondingly.

This is how it looks after painting.

I am going to make this model as if it belonged to JG 300 Wilde Sau with its Reich defense tail bands.
