The First Photo Jet
This is the Dragon Messerschmitt Me262 Recon variant, built OOB and painted with Modelmaster and Xtracolor enamels. The decals are from another Ventura sheet, with both ME262’s recon & captured options. This machine served in Northern Italy in 1945
The kit was a bit of a struggle, but this was before Tamiya released their own kit. I found that if you take your time and reinforce the wing to fuselage join at the rear fuselage, it does actually build up OK. The trick is to double check and reinforce any discrepancy.
And LOTS of filler….
