GUEST GALLERY: Heinkel 219 "UHU" 1/48 by RICARDO ABAD "CHICHO".

Now I want to share with you this awesome piece by Chicho Abad. Chicho used the Tamiya kit to build an incredible super detailed “Uhu” under restoration inspired in the one in display in the Air and Space Museum, Washington. He shows us a Heinkel 219 with the central fuselage in advanced restoration but the wings still with the German camouflage, which gives a nice visual contrast. I love all the opened panels, of course, but I specially enjoy the asymmetric detailing on the engine nacelles. Chicho used the two engines to show different things in each one, and this way duplicating the interest.
This is a wonderful work full of amazing details, no doubt.

  1. Si señor, otro excelente trabajo de micro-ingeniería. Con un impecable tratamiento de la pintura con sus luces y desgastes, analizando bien las fotos, se pueden ver los materiales no imprimados en el modelo original y el excelente remachado que ha mejorado el aparato, esto no se hace en un día. Muy buena maqueta. En los años 90, el catalogo de Verlinden ofrecía algo similar, pero esto lo supera por varios cuerpos. Felicidades al Señor Abad.
