Monogram’s 1/48 German Me 262

January 24, 2019 · in Aviation · · 11 · 2.2K

I built model diorama for my brother-in-law John as a Christmas gift in 1987. All stock out of the box with attention to paint and airbrush details. Base was constructed with sand gravel and static grass with shaded concrete colors. Base weathered with pastels and thinned oil paint. This is his favorite WW2 aircraft. Still looks great today in a display case!

    This is also my favorite jet ! Yours looks great, even after all of these years ! These Monogram kits build up into a good looking jet.
