    I am still not completely sure of which of the two I intend on doing. A1+BA KG53 H-4 in the Aeromater or the KG55 H-6 from the kit. Both are from the Buzz and should qualify under the GB rules and both have cool stuff about them. I've had the kit for a long time and this looked like a reason to build. When I get the aftermarket stuff I'll get a better idea and make a decision. I like the black belly of the Kg55 bird and the ID markings of the KG53.

    Nice one Don. I tried finding this kit a couple of years ago, without luck as it was OOP, so got the one with the V.1 to convert back to a H model.
    Whoever wrote that last caption needs to check their 'official' histories - the BoB ended on 31 October, 1940 !

    A nice choice. :thumbright:

    BTW.. We have asked for keeping of the first post as "short" as possible allowing to post there either a pic or a profile ( art box ) of plane chosen only. Posting there more images forces us to go through the post again on each page of a thread what makes it a little bit annoying. In other words... please follow the GB rules.

    I shot these of the He111 up at Cavanaugh Flight Museum a few years back, the last time I was up there with Dale, it was not available as it was being restored, I believe they said to flight condition. This aircraft was part of the cast for the movie Battle of Britian and the last time it flew was when it flew into Addison air port where Cavanaugh is located.

    Good shots of the CASA Don. Remember that this is a Spanish-built, lterr version of the He-111, with Merlin engines, and many small detail changes externally, including the nose glazing, although major structure and components are basically the same.
    Guttorm (Ju-88A1) one of our members, was involved in the restoration of the real BoB period He-111 at the RNoAF Museum at Gardermoen, Norway, and posted some great external and internal detail shots a few years back.

    Thanks Terry and I do know it is a Spanish bird.and that it has differences from the He 111, but sometimes it's what you have. I have other references I am using but I should like to see the 111 photos posted. I shall have to find them.

    Great choice Don! It's fitting for at least one target of all of the little fighter planes that we are building!

    Great choiche! one of my favorite kits. Builds up very nice and only has a minimal of weak spots for such a large bomber kit. Wing root is one and the engines need carefull alignment. Exhaust stacks are corect for a early B of B He-111 but wrong for the later marks.(Though Revell's Torpedo boxing has the correct exhaust)
    Also All monogram versions come with a covered gondola front. Not all He-111 versions had these.
    Squadron has an inexpensive set to cure this, should you need glass on the front of the gondola.

    The Eduard stuff is a nice addition. Though little will be visible in the end ;)
    Oh and a set of masks for the glazing is something you won't regrett buying!

    Great choose!!,

    I have some photos of the resturacion which became the CASA 2111E in the late 90 in Getafe for the museum cuatro vientos, and other that I found on the internet, You Start, Terry and the German air museum that presents the another exemplary restoration since 2002, that the stock buy disused aircraft here in Spain, the CASA 2111E was used to 70.

    if you want pictures of the interior will put you can put the other by the author I do not have permission to place them or disclose them because it has certain things that can not be shown for copyright issue.
    but I have sought some links so you can lean on something else.
