Dragon 1/72 Mistel 5 He-162/Arado E-377a
This was started at the same time as the Typhoon and has continued a bit longer being worked on whilst doing my Buccaneer.
Three kits in one really. The Trolley and the Arado were little gems that were a joy to build but the Salamander was , well, a pig. Nothing on it fitted where it was supposed to but I think we got there.
This has also been built for the wee man as he really likes a bit of whiffery.
Primed with UMP Grey Primer
Painted with Colourcoats RLM 02, RLM76, Vallejo RLM 66, RLM 81, RLM 82, Xtreme Metals Aluminium, Burnt Metal and Tamiya Rubber Black.
Final Coat was Windsor and Newton Satin Varnish.
Some Eduard Lufwaffe Seatbelts and Albion Alloy tubing were also used.
Disaster struck just as I was ready to take some photos and the box tipped and knocked the engine cover and the loop aerial off. The aerial went the way of most things that hit the floor so I used a piece of Stainless Steel vaping wire bent around a small screwdriver to try and replicate it..
Thanks for looking.
