Messerschmitt Me 262 A-1a by Trumpeter in 1/32 scale
October 8, 2013 in Aviation
This model represents the Me 262 A-1a flown by Major Walter Novotny, based in Achmer, in November 1944.
The kit went together quite easily & some light rubbing down after the application of Tippex in various places minimised the effect of the rivets. There are so many color schemes for this type that deciding which to use was almost the hardest part. In the end I referred to Mushroom Model Magazine Yellow Srs 6105 on the subject & came up with this one.
This kit is a heavy one so I used the beautiful metal undercarriage option for strength. The tyres are rubber as supplied & have proven trouble free. Paints are Gunze, decaks from kit & spares box.
Hope you like it.
