Update No. 2: He 162 Salamander
I tried posting this earlier, but I think it failed. So here it is. This is the next update of the 162. I’ve had a blast building this kit. It is now completely built, but it is now time for paint. So, next update, you will see paint. Basically, this kit had two engine options. One was an open engine with a extremely detailed set of parts. The other was a simplistic closed engine. What I did was I built the open engine, and the closed engine, but then I lost one of the parts, so then I had to decide: buttoned down or open? I dont like to model things open sometimes, so I chose closed. However, I had to use the engine that I already put together and put all the detail into painting. So, inside the engine cowling, there is a full, historically accurate, painted engine. And it isnt seen. Sooooo, #buildersatisfaction lol. I also painted the pilot and attached the canopy. I CANT FIGURE OUT HOW TO CHOOSE WHICH PIC BECOMES THE PICTURE SHOWN ON THE ARTICLE.
