The Zoukei-Mura Dornier Do 335 A-12 Pfeil Plastic Model Kit presents a level of miniature reproduction quality that may not be equaled in 1/32 scale.

So exact in detail, it's like building the real thing! Kit is comprised over 350 parts, molded in gray and clear styrene. Requires painting and assembly to match the photographs shown. Optional components, paints and more . . . available separately . . . further enhance various aspects of the model and allow the builder to capture an unmatched level of realism.
The Dornier Do 335 A-12 is a twin-seat trainer bomb-fighter. The front seat of this version is almost identical to the mass-produced single-seat version. The mid-fuselage fuel tank has been removed and replaced with a back seat (no ejection seat), where the instructor would sit. Because of the addition of the lump-like rear canopy and its fairing, the upper shape of the fuselage is very different from the single-seater, giving a very strong image. Hence a nickname for the plane was Giant Anteater.
