I actually have a Momogram Dornier17 still that I built as a kid. Only thing missing from it is a couple of the small machine guns. Propellors and landing gear are still intact. How do I know for sure it was built that long ago? The gloss black paint for the RLM70 blackgreen.

At this point I wold probably build the new Airfix Do17 in 1/72. Then could take a photo with then and now. :bgrin
Somehow I bet it looked better than my 3 color plastic one looked like - post a picture mate.

I can't. :huh:

I'm at work. :pp

Only suggestion I would make would be that you build up a current kit in the same scale as the one you did years ago.

I remember doing a 1/32 Revell Spitfire with an engine, working landing gear aand control surfaces.

Hmm I guess I should try and find the box I have with all the old instruction sheets in it.

Hey Dave, you wnated a picture of the old warbeast? Here is my Monogram Do-17 from 1968 or 1969. I might be off a year or 2 but not more than that.

Only things missing are 2 machine gun barrels and an antenna that was on the bottom fuselage. Everything else is fully intact as I built it bach then. After taking a good look, I had forgotten about not doing seams and such.

And yes the props will spin if I blow on them.







So is that good enough for a Dave? :bgrin

I'm in on this one. I was actually planning to redo a kit I had built around 10 years ago now so this will be the perfect opportunity to do that.

Ya know Dave, thinking back, I don't remember ever having much trouble with fogging the clear parts. I know this was built with the old Testors tube glue in the orange & white tube. Heck I didn't start using liquid solvent type glues or CA until I was in college several years later.

Necro-bump. Yeah, I went grave digging for this thread. :cheer:

This would be a fun one for the future if there is still interest. I picked up a 1/48 Monogram A-10 during a show a while back with this exact purpose in mind (before I even knew this thread existed).

There's only one that I would want to do that to but it's OOP, I know someone who has it but I haven't been able to get them to respond to emails. That Brass Halftrack.

What are you writing about? Is it the one you built with all the Griffon brass? I need to check my stash as I don't recall any US halftrack with a sharkmouth or face so...

I specifically bought the 1/72 Airfix Do17 (with all the goodies) for this one. Still have the old Monogram Do17 I built back about 1970 (pre airbrush and little Testors paint bottles)

Definitely a "Can do better now" build.
