1/32 Revell He 111 P1

Gallery Article by Jens Gerber on July 12 2021



After a long time here is a current model from my workbench.  The Revell He 111 P1 scale 1:32 got a lot of laurels when it was released, but I can't follow that.  Especially the wings need a lot of help and spatula at the connection points, top and bottom.

The ammunition supply is also a bit tight and I got a replacement for the Ju 88 from Revell.  

Accessories were the Eduard zoom set, gun barrels from Master Modell and seat belts for the He 111 from HGW Models No. 132035, some lead and brass wire for lines and cables

Colors as a base color an RLM 02 from Tamiya, the RLM 70/71/65 from Gunze Mr. Color and Metalfinisch of the weapons and exhausts from Alclad + some pigments from CMK

The aging is done with simple chalk (rubbed) and watercolors from the school painting box

For the PE parts in the pulpit I used the UHU Booster UV glue, it is very stable but only lasts as much as the coating of the parts ;-)

I hope the Heinkel can convince and like the pictures :-)

Greetings from Germany.
