Now that the Do-17 is all but finished my eldest daughter chose this as my next build. There are a number of kits or subjects that I have as a “rite of passage” build. Something that I always wanted to do but never had the pocket money, skills or time. Or maybe something that my dad built with me or for me. Obvious subjects are the Spitfire, Me-109 etc. Or particular kits like the 1/350 scale Tamiya ships. The Stuka is also one of those subjects to build, not this specific kit or the scale or variant, just the subject.

Option A will be the version I’ll build, maybe with some etched seatbelts and using paintmasks - all that glazing is tedious.

The sprue shots etc.
