Modeler #1 -I know an AWFUL lot about Luftwaffe aircraft, I bought the resin 217N conversion from you at the IPMS Nats

===================================================================================

Modeler #2 -Ooooh!!!  Ooooh!!!!  Pick me!!!!  Pick me!!!!
1) I like Luftwaffe planes (as well as other planes)
2) I like bombers 'cos they look mean (especialy the cockpit on the Do 217)
3) I need a sanity kit.  I've heard that Bill Koster designed the kit.  It's about time I worked on something that's got good engineering, as I've worked on 5 limited run kits now (and almost done with the 6th) since November.  I really, really need a sanity kit.
4) I like free stuff.
5) I'm a poor college student, and I can't afford nice new kits!
6) Hey, if I like, got it, and built it, and it's on your page, and people like it, well, hey, I get 15 minutes of fame!
7) I really like free stuff.
8) From a marketing perspective, wouldn't you want to have an "unknown" build it up nicely, instead of having the "superstars" of modeling?  Then we'll all say, "hey, whasisname built this, and I've never seen this guy on the pro circuit before.  That must mean that even I, Mr Joe Average Builder, can do it nice too." (I think I'm trying too hard here!)
9) Free stuff.  'Nuff said.
10) Oh, and I promise I'll review this kit  :-)  No seriously.  Like I said, I've been working on limited run single-seat monoplanes for 3 months now, and I'd sure like to build something that's conventional injected molded AND bigger (with lots of bombs and guns sticking out!  Yeah!!!!  Fire!!! FIRE!!!)
11) Did I mention I like free stuff?

I've also attached a picture of my rubber ducky, which, while not a model airplane, the ducky *would* mirror my expression as I'm looking at you, hoping that you'd let me have a go at this Do-217

===================================================================================

Modeler #3 -I wouldn't mind a chance at a free Do-217.  I like the Revellogram quarter scale aircraft series.  They've come a long way since the days when their cockpits consisted of a rear bulkhead with a hole in it and a pilot with a stick in his back.

===================================================================================

Modeler #4 -I need this kit because its my favorite plane! Also i have built the kit once before and I know exactly what parts and things need to be mentioned in a review, so that other builders know what to look for.

===================================================================================

Modeler #5 - I'm a Luftwaffe fanatic. OK, I'm an airplane nut in general. I dream in RLM colors.


===================================================================================

Modeler #6 -I have been an occasional lurker and infrequent commenter on RMS for about 2 years. Have not tried anything like this before but as a keen Luftwaffe and WW2 modeller in 1/48 then.... I have been working on the R-M boxing for last 2 months - is now almost ready to paint but not yet chosen a colourscheme. The Promodeller kit would give me a extra choice of finishes. I am also about 3/4 finished with a review for the Local IPMS Newsletter, so can send on as soon as Paint is dry

===================================================================================

Modeler #7 -Why I need this kit: NEED???  Can you ask a modeler about NEEDING a kit??? Of course I NEED it like I NEED about 100 other kits.  But seriously, I would LIKE this kit because I built almost exclusively WW2 Luft. subjects(an occasional RAF subject), and it would be a great choice to add to my bomber collection: right now a couple of Ar234's , Ju87s, Me262's.  Actually it is my collection of the Night War that would benefit;, I have both Luftwaffe and RAF planes that were involved in night bombing and interception.  I would add this plane to that line-up.  I think I can do a good job, since I have a lot of experience and materials for Luft. planes.  I promise that this kit would get on the top of my pile, in fact I would clear the pile off my work bench and get on it right a way.  I would start writing a log of all stages of building(I used to do that for all my kits).

Modeler #8 -Pics of my 217's in 1/48th. (both MPM vac form)

===================================================================================

Modeler #9

===================================================================================

Modeler #10 -I need this kit because 1)It fits my multi-purpose aircraft theme, 2) I donate most of my review models to the Planes of Fame Museum in Arizona, 3) I build 1/48 models, 4) I haven't dissed RollModels on HyperScale. I promise to review the model.
