Eduard Me 262a-1A
Eduard’s Great little 1/144 262 this was my second go at a brail scale model, my first wasn’t that great i bought one of the re-released Revell Mini Wings kits for a pound it was the
Fw190 started to build it and promptly lost the prop so binned it, next try was this little beauty
a real pleasure to build and paint and weather, one little bonus with the it is the inclusion of the Kettenkrad so the next challenge was to find some figures to dress it up a bit Transport Models of Preston to the rescue they stock a tonne of railway goodies in all scales and as 1/144 is N gauge i bought a set of platform figures the guy standing is pretty much as it came i just trimmed his hat to make it look like a late war german peaked cap and there was a pretty good mechanic, the guy sitting in the Kettenkrad started life as a seated little old lady and with a little judicious carving and whittling here and there another little mechanic appeared.
The base is one of the downloaded 1/72 scale images from Model scenics reduced down to a size that looked ok to me a little bit of Life Colour oil randomly placed around and a few bits of scenic grass glued to some of the joints in the concrete to look like weeds popping through
the frame is one of the super cheap photo frame from a famous Swedish furniture shop
Anyway Chaps Hope You Like My Little Storm Bird
