Me-262 O. O. B. Jet.
I promised to post one of my “Out-of-Box” models and here it is. The written data say’s I built the model in December, 2006. (14 years ago).
Photo’s 2 & 3 show’s that I already knew how to make scribing templates, with the use of aluminum soda cans. I also had the experience of making “painting mask” using painter’s masking tape. I bought the tape at a local paint store and today you can buy it in just about any store.
Take special notice of my upside down photo. You will see a whole bunch of small “B-B’s” in the nose wheel well. I just assume that the model would sit on its’ nose…SURPRISE!
I learned to tape the models together and set them on their nose and if it was a “tail dragger” I added weight to the inside of both halves of the nose area. That solved my tail dragger models forever.
I painted on the “VI and AL” next to the kit’s fuselage insignia and today 16 year’s later I have no idea why I did it! And the same goes for the color on the model.
Enjoy – RJW.
