Airfix 1/72 Messerschmitt Me262A-1A
This kit was a part of the Airfix Dogfight Double but is not done in the box scheme.
As a relatively new kit I thought it would be fairly easy but the fit of certain part, specifically the engine wing mounts was tricky.
This involved checking, sanding and trimming to get them to face forward.
Tolerances were very tight so fitting the undercarriage legs and wheels meant a bit of shaving to get them in.
Despite my grumbles this was a fun build and as I'd never built a 262 before I can say I did enjoy it.
