Mistel S2 WIP
« on: September 27, 2011, 01:31:26 PM »
Hi everyone,

A friend asked me to build this kit for him so he could use the photos on his online store page. It's his own boxing of various parts, consisting of an AMT 1/72 Ju-88, and then various parts to build either the trainer or warhead version of a Mistel. He even includes some new resin cooling fans in place of the kit engines. The Fw-190 is not included, but he sent one to me to add in. (It's the Revell kit.)

I've never built any Luftwaffe subjects, so this is something new for me. I warned him I had no experience modeling these. I hope my friend likes it! :)

Very nice!

Years ago I built the Fw 190 portion of a Mistel but never got around to the mother ship. Yours is wonderful and may motivate me to find my '88.
