Heinkel He162 A-2 SalamanderTamiya 1/48

January 8, 2023 · in Aviation · · 17 · 0.9K

Hello and happy new year!

It's not a novelty since the model appeared 13 years ago but I had a lot of fun to build it.
Some modifications and additions :

  • guns replaced by micro-tubes
  • Aires ejector seat
  • collimator and handles of the canopy in scratch...

Tamiya airbrush paint.
The decoration comes from the box: Heinkel He 162 A-2 flown by Oberleutnant Emil Demuth, 3./JG 1, Leck/Germany, 5 May 1945. Emil Demuth's previous 16 victories were painted on the rudder of his He 162.

  1. An absolutely superb result, Guy, with your extra touches being the icing on the cake!

  2. Nice job, Guy!
    Agreed that this is a nice kit to build.

  3. Exceptionally neat build, Guy, looks like you have a nice garden as well.

  4. Great result, especially with those additions, Guy @gaubert
    Well done.

  5. Very clean and sharp paintwork, Guy. Well done.

  6. Guy,

    You've made a "Goldilocks" build. Everything on the build is "Just right".

    My only niggle is the back round. Everything is bright sunny, green and warm. I look out side and see 2 feet of snow and its 7 degrees F out side.

    Smashed the like button.

  7. Very nice work!

  8. A nice, clean Salamander - well done!
