Day 29 was a day for “colorizing” the past. This is what I like to do in my spare time beside building model airplane kits.
This is the latest one I did for his children using a black and white photo they had of their father. Looking at it I think I got the shirt color wrong. I will fix it later.
If you are interested, what I wrote about Flight Lieutenant Thomas Oscar Meteyer is here. He is the reason I bought these two model kits of the planes he flew in WWII.
Getting back to my build, this is where I am today.
The landing doors were added last Friday night.
The engines panels and the exhausts were added Saturday morning. Again I had fitting problems, but I’ll get over it.
The small parts will be added after all the painting has been done. That way I won’t break anything.
Final unpainted photo of ICM He 111H-3.
Tomorrow I should mix some homemade RLM 02 or RLM 66 and test them in the cockpit area, on the bomb bay doors, in the wheel wells and the landing struts.
About Lieutenant Meteyer’s colorised photo… Can you spot “la différence”?
