Blohm und Voss Bv 222
Blohm und Voss Bv 222 - Valentin E. Bueno
Here are a few photos of my Revell von Deutschland BV 222 V2 model in 1/72 scale. This is the new mold kit and it is quite a beauty.
The kit has a rather well detailed cockpit as well as a roof and floor for the main cabin. Since this is the Versuchs version 2, it has the 6 BMW radial engines. Later version would have in-line engines.
This model assembles very quickly with the only problem area being the engine exhausts. There is a large gap between the front and rear portions of the nacelle that is difficult to fill. I sanded off the offending exhausts and filled the gap. I made new exhausts from wire solder.
The model was painted with Model Master Acryl RLM 65/72/73.
Kit decals were added directly to the flat finish with copious amounts of Solvaset under and above the decal. These were then sealed in with some hand brushed Tamiya flat mixed with Future.
I haven't added the guns in the windows, I knew that I would be constantly breaking these off everytime I picked up the model.
