The engines are quite detailed yet there is a need for piping and wire in the nacelles, judging from photos of maintenance being preformed. The crew seats are well detailed. ICM has a better-than-basic model here that will be an excellent basis for superdetailing.

I am building the Do215 B-4 right now and I have to say has been a bit of work due to some fit issues. Also the plastic is a bit rough in a few spots. Having said that, the kit will look the part, providing I don't screw up the paint job when complete. I wonder if Airfix has a 1/48 scale Do17 Z-2 in the works - or better yet, a 1/32 scale from RoG!

THANKS, DARREN!

Whatever warts or fit-issues the ICM Do.17Z-2 may have, I'm SURE that it is STILL LIGHT-YEARS AHEAD of the CLASSIC AIRFRAMES and HOBBYCRAFT kits, with their various errors, wrong shapes and fit-issues, along with trench-like panel lines. I'm looking forward to buying my "Flying Pencil", and ICM's Ju.88A-5, as well...
