Tamiya Salamander

Made this little gem of a kit around 2 years ago, and still love to see it on my shelf, smaller than most other 1/48 but unique nonetheless. A mix of old war shades (81/82/84 on the fuselage) and early war shades (71 over 65 in the wings)

I used decals from a Kagero book and masks for the iron cross insignias. Hope you like it!

  1. Is it my imagination or has the standard on this site taken a jump? Love this Salamander, it’s a lovely build and I’d be really proud if I were you, Pedro!

  2. Pedro, Very well done !
    This Tamiya He 162 kit is really nice and fun to build. Even though I’ve only built one, I would highly recommend it.

  3. Pedro, nice to see one built. Nicely done!

  4. Very nice result, my friend…but, after all, it IS a Tamiya. πŸ™‚

  5. Very nice work on this. Looks as real as the 1:1 out at Planes of Fame.

  6. Excellent work on this “Peoples Fighter”. I especially like the landing gear and cockpit details……………

  7. You have managed ‘subtle’ brilliantly Pedro – it is something that is so difficult – but always effective – what a great build!

  8. Thank you Paul, appreciate the feedback

  9. Salamander is on my list of coolest flying machines! πŸ˜‰ Your model is simply gorgeous, beautiful work! πŸ™‚

  10. Outstanding, Pedro! These are very interesting birds and yours is a shining example of what many of us (myself, especially) aspire to create. I too, noticed the wonderful detailing, especially the wheel wells.

    Bravo!

  11. Beautiful model! Nice subtle detailing and weathering, and love the “mixed” scheme you chose for it! Well done.

  12. Like the others, I’d like to compliment the total build, but I especially like the detail in the wheel wells. Great job!

  13. Fantastic work! Wonderful model and I like how you have applied the colors. Great details!

  14. Very well done Pedro.
