Naked Bird…1/48 Messerschmitt Me262A-1/2a, JV44
All good things come in three, so here´s my dad´s third and last 262 for now.
Hobby Boss kit, “712” decals from Kagero book “Messerschmitt Me 262 In Defence of the Third Reich”, rest of decals from the sparesbox, painted with different MRP metal colours, simulated all the filler stuff by airbrushing different grey tones. Brake lines and seatbelts added, EZ Line used for the antenna wires.

In May 1945 the rest of JV44 ended up in Tyrol/Austria. A bunch of 262s and other aircraft, standing and lying around in the mountain valleys, partly destroyed, have been captured there by US troops.
Can´t tell if this aircraft was an A-1 or A-2. It had racks like an A-2 but four gun openings like an A-1.
