Revell 1/32 He219 A-7
This model is a third generation test shot built by Brett Green and painted and detailed by me.
The model represents an aircraft from I NJG 1. The blue codes indicate that this plane was probably part of the Stab flight of this squadron.
Not sure what the dark panels on the tail fins leading edges indicate but they were a feature on this and most other He219s.
Good shot showing the radar array. This was scratch built using fine brass tube and wire.
In this shot the tail warning radar antenna is shown, but I don’t think that this aircraft was actually fitted with this device.
The upper surface pattern was achieved by spraying a ‘lattice’ of RLM76 Light Blue over a solid RLM75 Grey Violet base (as it was done in reality). A full build article by Brett and me will appear in Issue 21 of ‘Military Illustrated Modeller’.
