As with my entry in the Airfix forum - I'm always late to these things. This is especially bad as I'm mostly a 1/72 scale builder (except for WW2 fighters).

Anyway - I've been working on an Italeri Dornier 217K-1. The Do-17/215/217 is one of my favourite families of twins, I have a few in the stash but this is the first one I've built. It was actually started a few years ago, shelved, then brought out a couple of months back as I try to finish off about a half-dozen started kits.

The main body is assembled, and I'm just finishing the (rather tedious, it must be said) process of masking all the clear parts before spraying

That will look great when done, Scott. Nice start. What will your colors be (or did you say on the post and I just glossed over it)?

Keep posting.
