1/48 Hobby Boss Me-262

November 4, 2021 · in Aviation · · 10 · 1.4K

Good kit, the variant A-1a/U1, a bit fantasy from what I read. First time I attach some ordnance on a scale model plane, I liked the idea of rockets on the first jet fighter, even that maybe the build is wrong. The good news is that one can obtain nice shadows along the panel lines using dry pastels blended with a soft brush.

  1. Excellent build, George and amazing painting and weathering!

  2. Very nice paint work, George. A very interesting take on this.

    I think the HB Me-262s can be listed as Best In Scale.

  3. Nice looking build, and can second Tom's mention of your paint work. Love the colors.

  4. Amazing result, George @georgedamian
    Your scheme and weathering looks awesome.
    Did built this one myself (left out the rockets and additional cannons) and have to say that this is indeed a great kit, like mentioned by Tom @tcinla.

  5. one of my favourite aircraft ever, you did an amazing job. the camo is outstanding. well done

  6. Nice job and congrats on building it the way you wanted to.

  7. @Spiros, @Tom, @Walt, @John, @Tam, @Robert, @Richard - thank you guys for your nice words.

  8. Great looking build! That one could do lots of damage configured like that. As a former brush-painter, I've been using pastel chalk powders for years to get some shading - looks good!
