Speed build: the Airfix Me-262 in 48hrs

Hi Everyone! 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 […]

Parrots, Parachutes, and Pancakes.

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 […]

Hot off the bench…. a 2015 build!

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!
