Get this impressive kit here now at Volks Zoukei-Mura
OMG! This has arrived from our friends at Volks Zoukei-Mura and I am very excited about the package too – not least because just as I write I discovered Sampson WS Yu and he has already finished building the HKM kit that looks similar in many ways and has agreed to share some of his photos of the HKM Do 335A-0 Pfeil “Arrow” 1:32 completed model. You can find these over in your SMN Subscribers’ Gallery, but why not take a look right here at what you could transform the ZM box contents into… this is one of the best builds I have seen in a long time and for me, has turned on it’s head my initial interest in the type. No idea why historically I have not been enthralled by the subject, but that has changed at a stroke seeing Sampson’s gorgeous model.
The sturdy box contains no less than 353 parts moulded in both light grey plastic and also the now-familiar clear plastic that enables you to create more of a museum piece that shows the full interior – should you want to go that way. What’s also possible of course is to leave many of the panels open so that you can see plenty of detail provided in the kit without making your model look unnatural – just look at Sampson’s model above to see what I mean.
We have built several Zoukei-Mura kits over the past few years and you can see all the full builds in the ZM pages in Finished Now.
