Do 17

I'd venture to say that if a model company wanted the Do 17, we'd have one.

Maybe hobbyboss/trumpeter.

Agreed.

It hasn't happened yet because it is not as exciting as the He111 or Ju88. But I will not say it will never be done. I think the night fighter Do 217 would be the most popular in the Dornier line.

I'm pretty sure a Do17 would go down well and is not too difficult to produce in 1/32... just remember, there are no remaining factory plans and no remaining examples of the Fokker Dr1 and yet we have how many kits in how many scales?? Regards, Marc.

Looks like there was/is 'something' to work with.

 

 

 

Still only really helps with the exterior.

Rog :)

 

I have 4 books , one Polish, one Russian and 2 German.

There are interior photos that are obviously not complete

but there aren't complete interior photos of many models.

This is certainly something out there, probably tons of good info, but PR drawings and the like should never be the basis of any model larger than 1/144.

 

A  lot can be extrapolated from basic dimensions.

yeah i've never bought the whole 'there's not a real aircraft so we can't design a model' line - never coming within a continent of the real thing hasn't  it hasn't stopped Trumpeter (and others!) churning out kits over the years

The Soviets purchased two new Do-215 and they were very extensively photographed, full interior and external detail shots.

It's some years since I've seen these images, but they are presumably still to be found somewhere, and I would assume have made it into print,

 

Cheers,

Bill.
