    Though long on the tooth, it still builds to a decent model, I do also have the DML/Trimaster kit, a Hobby Boss and of course the excellent Tamiya. So I figure I will start with the Monogram reboxed Revell classic.

    Nice choice – looking forward to it and strapped in to follow. Hit me!

    I haven’t built the Revell kit.
    I’m looking forward to seeing how it goes.

    Excellent, Chuck! Loving the 262!

  • Gary Brantley said 4 days, 6 hours ago:

    Hi Chuck! That kit does build up into a nice model; looking froward to seeing another one done. The Me-262 is my all-time favorite airplane!

  • Chuck A. Villanueva said 4 days, 6 hours ago:

    Thanks John, funny how my other choice to start with was the Hase Hs-129, but opted with the 262. Good choice on your part to start the GB with.

    Good am Erik, always welcome for the ride.

  • Chuck A. Villanueva said 4 days, 6 hours ago:

    Good morning Mike, it is the Monogram kit reboxed by Revell. Raised panel lines but accurate shape overall.

  • Chuck A. Villanueva said 4 days, 5 hours ago:

    Good am Spiros, thanks for the inspiration and look forward to tackling this kit. Does take some work which is as expected.

  • Chuck A. Villanueva said 4 days, 5 hours ago:

    Good morning Paul, if I had the space I would do a series of 262’s as I do have 3 more in the stash all different producers (DML, Hobby Boss and Tamiya). But I wanted to do just the one and maybe the DML too, but with the Ju-188 almost finished, I may either do the Pro Modeler Do-217 or the He-111 next will see.

    Nice choice, Chuck. That’s one of my favorite Monogram kits.

  • Paul Barber said 3 days, 7 hours ago:

    @uscusn Chuck, I think you are in your element with anything with two engines jets or props. A year is a long time – I’m sure we will see some stunning stuff!

    It is hard to beat a Revell/Monogram model, Chuck (@uscusn). They turn into great models with a little TLC. Looking forward to this build.
