▋Hey, the kit you can see next to the under-construction 1/32 Do 335 is the SWS 1/32 P-51D Mustang. I have built this one too, before it was released. Today I happen to be comparing its size with the Do 335. Are you amazed with Do 335's hugeness or do you admire Mustang's compactness? I guess this is up to each modeler.
This time I will show you how to build the "DB 603 engine".
You guys who have already built at least one SWS kit, as you very-well know, this Do 335 kit too has 2 DB 603 engines mounted back and forth, which is not going to disappoint you.
A powerful liquid-cooled engine mounted on this singularly shaped machine.
Finally this liquid-cooled inverted V-type 12 cylinder engine, pride of Daimler-Benz AG, revives in 1/32 scale on this Do 335.
With this engine, the single displacement is 44510cc!
Can you guess what sound this engine would make when started?
Also, as if the engine was skewered, Zoukei-mura directly challenged itself and tried to make a detailed reproduction of this deep interesting engine, which is as good as its original mysterious shape and concept.
This time too, an exceptional completeness shown by this engine assembly kit.
I would like to add that, at my own discretion, on this blog I will show you an assembly procedure which is different from the one explained in the instruction manual included with the kit.
In other words, this blog will follow a procedure which is different from the "regular" one.
Dear modelers, please read the assembly procedure illustrated in the instruction manual you will find with the kit and stick to it.
* After all, we are the ones in charge of development.
Every time we build a new test shot, the instruction manual is still not ready, some parts may not be available, the fitting could be better, and furthermore since it is a test shot, there is a "mold release agent" on the runners making them sticky.
(There will be no problems like these with the kit that will be released, so don't worry please).
I have built so many, so many kits that I naturally have the shape of the parts and their attachment positions in my head. That was I wanted to say.
That's why you must not imitate at all the procedure you see on this blog.
This time was fast but how was this DB 603 engine assembly?
What? "I'm burning to try my hand at it" you say.
Since Zoukei-mura has completed this kit just for you, hearing such words are the most encouraging thing ever for the development team members.
Next entry will explore in detail how to build the main wings and the cockpit.
See you next time!!
