Here is the reveal photos for the Heller 1/72 Bücker Bü 133 Jungmeister, a lovely little kit, over 40 years old and fits better than some new kits!

A nice little subject and I was happy to get back to some rigging again, there is something very impressive about 1/72 bi-planes.

Jason! So sweet! I remember this kit from when I was a teenager, there was a good rigging scheme in the instructions where you could actually thread the rigging continuously through it. I seem to remember that there was a civilian Swiss scheme in the boxing that I think I finished mine in! Where does your markings come from?

Saw one flying last year, there is one on the Swedish register. The Stradivarius of aerobatic planes they say!

Hi Jason,

I too remember this kit from oh-so-long ago. You did a solid build of this little beauty - and that wonderful pic next to the 10ml bottle effectively highlights how petite the model really is!

Thanks! It's the markings for the Condor Legion in Spain and I used various numbers from a 1/48 Fiat CR32 kit and painted the tail and wing markings, the logo on the cowling was printed on decal paper by me, it was a lovely little project.
