1/48 Revell Messerschmitt Me-410B-2/R-2

February 8, 2016 in Aviation

Hello Folks
I would like to present my latest completed build. This time it is Messerschmitt Me-410B-2/R-2 from Revell. This kit I think is pretty old but was reissue two years ago as Messerschmitt Me 410 B-6 / R-2 in Pro Modeller form. Build out of the box only after market parts are used were resin exhaust. The kit comes with PE parts for the cockpit so I choose to build it in canopy open for pilot and navigator. Regarding construction kit goes together with no real issues, the only tricky part in this kit is multi part canopy. Gluing clear parts together without fogging them was some kind of problem, but with carefully dry fitting and a little sanding came out ok. Due to complex shape of canopy I think Eduard masks are essential. Painting wise I used custom mix of Tamiya paint to achieve RLM 74/75/76 colors. Kit was weathered using first time AMMO Mig weathering set for Luftwaffe late war planes. This set is nice addition to my collection I like how the panel lines were alive after applying this enamel washes.
So here it is my Me-410 hope you will like it

  10. Lovely work, very tidy airbrush work! Very interesting aircraft. What a savage war the bomber offensive was. “We will remember them”.

  11. Great build Michal.. Especially the canopy & cockpit shots. I built one a few years ago & found the same problems – like a jigsaw puzzle, but it went together OK in the end. Lovely finish to your paintwork too!
