Now that's a tasty Cognac!
Got me the Do 215 from ICM a few months ago. Looks like a good kit.

ICM is better detailed and the details are sharper, but only Do17 and Do215 form ICM I know not this one.
The HS293 Bomb, a early cuise missle to kill ships, is a very special version, and I got 3 of the ICM kits, only one build yet

Another great build Peter! Are there any problems with assembly of this kit?

the join of wing parts in the middle on the upper side was tricky, the engine cowlings to the wings make a gab..all other are great

Now that you mention it, they sunk the Roma with one of these. It was the first ship sunk by a guided bomb.
Wikipedia.org wrote:While the force was in the Strait of Bonifacio, Dornier Do 217s of the German Luftwaffe's specialist wing KG 100—armed with Fritz X radio-controlled bombs—sighted the force. The first attack failed, but the second dealt Italia (ex-Littorio) and Roma much damage. The hit on Roma caused water to flood two boiler rooms and the aft engine room, leaving the ship to limp along with two propellers, reduced power, and arc-induced fires in the stern of the ship. Shortly thereafter, another bomb slammed into the ship and detonated within the forward engine room, causing catastrophic flooding and the explosion of the #2 main turret's magazines, throwing the turret itself into the sea. Sinking by the bow and listing to starboard, Roma capsized and broke in two, carrying 1,393 men—including Bergamini—down with her.

Absolutely gorgeous build! I always enjoy seeing what can be done with revell kits.

Unleash hell! Do not repent! Warfare grants us no lament
Let your weapons slash and tear This is no place for fear
Hold the lines! Move as one! In unity our victory's won
Our shields will form a mighty wall
United we shall never fall
