SWS Do 335
Thank you for all the reservations we received from all over the world!!
All the SWS and Zoukei-mura members are happy about that!!

How are you doing SWS brothers?!

Another big earthquake hit our Japanese archipelago, where the giant plates of four continents hit each others.

Everyone living in Kumamoto, Oita, Fukuoka and Saga Prefectures in Kyushu, did you have any damage from the earthquake?

From that day, a week has gone but intense aftershocks are continuing. Please be as cautious and prudent as you can.

I really hope that no one of you reading this blog is too affected by the disaster.




Well, the SWS Do 335 release planned for mid-May (in Japan) is getting closer, but me and the whole Development Team would like to express our gratefulness as we have received so many pre-orders from modelers and from our Friend Shops around the world.

Thank you very much!!



By the way… You there…

What? You are still hesitating!!?? So you did not pre-order the kit yet!!

Ohhhhhh my god!! Supreme Buddha!!

That sounds bad, brother. Really bad!!
This gloomy feeling is what makes a man getting old. Real poison for your heart.

This SWS Do 335 has come to the world just for you.

As a heart-feeding kit that will fulfill your modeler's life and this magnificent hobby called scale modelling with intellectual curiosity and unlimited happiness!



Ooooh, yes!
The kit is actually awesome! And the price is fairly reasonable! But what matters most of all is that your heart is still demanding for the latest SWS kit!!!!

Engine, cockpit, fuselage internal structure, landing gears, armament, and then the propellers etc. etc.!! Have you ever seen such a plastic model kit like this?

An unware person may think "what a weird aircraft!" seeing that figure.
Somebody else might perhaps say "why did they go so much in detail to make this kit!??

But, to me and you, that figure now actually looks cute, doesn't it?
It does. It really does. I cannot see anything else by the way.

An unware person might think that the "aircraft is strange", or "what a bad looking shape". That's why it's good. That's why I want it. That's why Zoukei-mura challenged it.

What? If flew into the skies!?? Yes, it did. And it looked cool when it did!

Hey hey, the eastern sky has gotten brighter, right? For you, perhaps the Steller's sea eagle flying in the sky now looked like the Do 335.

Who could see it? You. Just you and me. Well, it is ok even though just two of us did see it!!

Please order it on VOLKS Website Store.
Or reserve it at the nearest SWS Friend Shop.

As an "owner of a SWS Do 335" your heart will feel refreshed at once! Just like the feeling of the Steller's sea eagle flying in the blue sky.

This time I will introduce you the extra parts that we have prepared for the SWS Do 335 kit.

With this awesome kit, you will enjoy double or 3 times more than usual!

Please look forward to the SWS extra parts too.



▋Do 335 is a twin-engine, large bomber.
Even if you build it normally, the kit will be quite heavy. You need these if you want to put some metal on the nose in order to balance the kit on its 3 landing gears.
You can also put a support under the tail wing, but these metal struts are a good choice for safety as they are pretty reliable.
Very effective to conserve your finished kit for a long time.
