After the successful launch of their generally excellent value for money new-tool Do 215B-4 reconnaissance-bomber, ICM have released the dedicated night-fighter/intruder version, the Do 215B-5.

Someday one of these will set assembled on my shelf! An impressive model.

Those bezels look great!

Resurrection! I recently bought one of these (from Squadron) and it now has the same sprues as the Revell release. You do get the gun pack and flame dampers. From what I've been able to glean from the old photos, the dampers were of the "half-round" variety, not the tubular type- and that's what's in the box.

Hi Chuck

Interesting. Have they updated the cockpit now to cater for the gun-nose?

All the best

As in compressed air bottles and radar gear? No- just the same changes as for the Revell boxing. Eduard provide radar receiver gear to fill up that canopy. You'll need to blank off the nose, I imagine- and does anyone know what should be behind that enormous searchlight lens? A parabola, possibly- another fun little detail to add.
