Greetings everyone, my workbench does not know any break.  Completed this Do 215 B4 by ICM in 1/48 scale.  The kit has some problems with the motor gondolas, these require a lot of attention and putty.

The cockpit also has some discrepancies to original images, but is designed very well as a model.
The armament with MG 15 should each decide for themselves, here help original images and plans.

My model was built up on belts OOB I used Model Master RLM 70 and RLM 65 as colors, the RLM 02 came from Tamiya, the RLM 71 was a product of Gunze Mr. Color, the RLM 04 I used from MIG AMMO, the gloss varnish layers were from Gunze GX 100 and were applied according to high dilution in several layers.  The antenna is stretched with EZ Line.

Even if one reads from the construction reports for the ICM Do 17 and 215 again and again of concerns with the engines and motor gondolas, it will not remain my last ICM Do on a scale of 1:48

Greetings from Germany and a Happy New Year.
