I thought I'd share another completion from last year. Monograms 1/48 262 done up as Galland's aircraft from JV 44
- Rescribed as required (real aircraft had panel lines, joints, rivets filled and sanded smooth)
- Open engine panels and gun bay [...]
This kit was the my first successfully done Me 262 in 72nd, the other two (also by Revell), were thrown to the garbage after I couldn´t stand seeing them with their noses melted by the glue I had use for the nose weights.
the Messerschmitt 262 the first operational and combat jet must have been a pretty scary opponent, being as it could do 100 mph faster than anything in the allied inventory...i still remember Clark Gable's consternation about it in the wonderful[...]
Here are a few photos of the new Airfix Me262B in 1:72 which I built for Airfix Model World recently. This is a lovely little kit which as you can see, builds up into a pretty great looking 262. This was out-the-box save for some Eduard seatbelt[...]

1/48th scale Tamiya Me262A-1a & Kettenkraftrad
Red 13, 111/EJG 2 flown by Oberstleutnant Heinz Bar.
The only addition was etched seat belts.
Painted with Aeromaster & Tamiya Acrylics, & weathered with artist gouache.
This is a golden oldie that I built shortly after my return to the hobby back in the mid to later 1990's.
Back then I didn't have access to the internet, and I mainly relied on books that I had gathered. I frequently followed the build and ma[...]
