Focke-Wulf TL "Flitzer" (Revell 1/72) - Fuerza Aerea Palombiana
« on: October 24, 2010, 08:59:52 AM »
Hello,

Here is my last finished build: a "what-if", the Focke-Wulf TL Flitzer from Revell.
Excellent kit, with minor problems only during the build phase.
I've chosen not to represent a German aircraft but a "total what-if": the plane was flown by the "Fuerza Aerea Palombiana": don't search on a map, Palombia doesn't exist... Only in a comic book (Spirou & Fantasio: the Dictator and the mushroom).
Decals are home made (well, "home" is just a way to say that: drawings made by a French friend; printing made by a Belgian mate on a laser printer)

Some photos:
















...Placed on a piece of a Verlinden tarmac sheet


Hope you'll like my little Flitzer...

I fully agreed with you, mate. It was in the present case a funny build, made between two more serious and detailed ones.
Such builds are needed. Really.

Ooooo yes! I also prefer to take some easy to do ;) So products like the Matchbox are still of great value for me :))

Best at all- some kits are made only by this company. I have their Heyford and it is really great kit!
