Monogram 1/48 Me262

Here is a kit that has languished half built for about 6 years or so. I finally put a push on completing it early this year and while completed a month ago, I didn’t have time to try and post it until now.
It is what you find in the kit except for: Lone Star cockpit, Superscale decals, Xtracolour paints.
I made resin copies of my Dragon 262 kit wheels for this build, but as the dragon vinyl wheels haven’t rotted after all this time, I decided to use them on this build.
I plan to prop the canopy open with a brace, but for now, I am leaving the canopy down to keep dust out of the cockpit.
I hope to post more soon.

  1. Dan,
    Beautiful job on this most interesting aircraft. And it illustrates my good feelings about Monogram kits. If they are done right, like yours, they are hard to beat. Thanks!

  2. Brilliant Swallow Dan. The Mono kit is a great alternative to the more expensive Tamiya version. Like it!

  3. Very nice! Those old Monogram kits always seem to build into good looking models.

    The ones that take the longest come out the best!

  4. Very good finish on this, Dan.

  5. Great old kit!! IMHO, it’s a good as any and in your hands, you proved it!! Now if they’d make a 2-holer!!


  6. Nice job Dan, all those old Monogram kits is some elbow grease and TLC. And Mr. West’s products help too.

  7. Man that makes me wish I hadn’t traded mine away a few years ago! Monogram why did you fold into Revell why oh why! We could use you these days, Revell is carrying the torch somewhat, but nothing like those great Monogram kits! Nice build.

  8. Well done Dan, you executed the scheme quite well that is unique to the 262. I have this kit as well as a Dragon and a Tamiya. So someday I will have all 3 on display, though I believe the Dragon will be a challenge with all the detail bits. Thanks for sharing

  9. Dan,

  10. Good work on an older but good kit, love Monograms too
