Hobby Boss Me 262
March 4, 2015 in Aviation
The HB 262s are the best compromise at the moment. Outline wise it still is the old Monogram leading the charts. It is a greater effort to close all the mad riveter holes than to create “rivet replicas”. What I don´t like with the HB kit is the (minimal) too high canopy (Monogram and even Dragon are better – the worst being Tamiya). The main ldg-gear legs were shortened. The nose wheel comes from somewhere I do not remember, barrel is from Schatton. The nose inscription is from Ventura (forget what you find in the box). The colors are from Schmincke.
