Another great little Airfix kit. I added Eduard PE to detail the cockpit and used Mission Models paints. It is good kit, but one tricky point is the filler needed to blend in the joins between the wings and engine nacelles.
This is my "48hrs Me-262" from the new tool Airfix Me-262 1:72 kit. We - some modeling friends and enthusiasts - just held a friendly speed building competition this weekend. As far as I know this was the first such event in Hungar[...]
A short Friday distraction to start the day.
73 years ago, almost to the day, Eduard Schallmoser climbed into his Me 262 (sometimes erroneously described as white 5 or 14, but was actually 'white 11') in response to incoming American B-26 Marau[...]
1/48th scale Tamiya Me262A-1a & Kettenkraftrad
Red 13, 111/EJG 2 flown by Oberstleutnant Heinz Bar.
The only addition was etched seat belts.
Painted with Aeromaster & Tamiya Acrylics, & weathered with artist gouache.

Here are a few photos of the new Airfix Me 262 which is featured in the new issue of Airfix Model World Magazine. This is a superb little kit, detail is excellent. This should be in the shops by Autumn I believe. Hope you enjoy the photos!

Airfix's venerable Me 262 in US Navy scheme, did a few year's back.
Here is the Eduard Me 262A-1a. Very good little kit, but I couldn't resist adding a bunch of
P-E from the Brengun set for the B model. My eyes have ordered me back to 1/48!
Happy New Year to All!
First headline post after a short hiatus from modeling. Earlier this year I read about Flying Heritage Collection's Me-262 restoration that will be flying soon with the original style (but not completely original as the guts have been remanufac[...]
