There were many amazing and beautifully detailed scale models at the recent AMA East Expo. The big winner of the Best in Show award went to Joe Lewandoski with his 90.5 inch span, twin push/pull Dornier Do 335 Pfeil (Arrow). Joe’s WW2 Luftwaffe Fighter is beautifully detailed, and impressed everyone as it was also Electric Powered with a pair of E-flite Power 160 brushless motors. The 35-pound Arrow has two 5000mAh 10S LiPo packs for each motor and it is controlled with an Airtronics SD 10G radio system.
From Garden City Park, NY, Joe’s award winning twin is 1/6-scale and took 2 1/2 years to complete. The Do 335 is finished with Latex house paint and includes functional flaps, homemade pneumatic retracts and navigation lights.

Love this aircraft.
Well done sir.
Congratulations and commendations on building this rarely considered German fighter.
My current ability is way below this, BUT I can sincerely admire the result of long, and probably sometimes frustrating effort. Did I just hear a sigh of relief?
OUTSTANDING build Joe! The Do-335 is arguably my favorite prop/piston aircraft of WW2 and your kit is unbelievable – I built Tamiya 1/48 Do-335 AO in 2012, won 2nd place for Axis WW2 Aircraft @ 2013 IPMS show – your build is ‘mine’ only scaled up and with LOTS more detail. WOW – Well Done Mr. Lewandoski !!
