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.
FROG, ME-262A, Kit # F248, (1972)
On my return back to this hobby, I've been wanting to build a big collection of FROG kits. Since April last year I have built five and restored one. This Me-262 caught my eyes the other day and decided to [...]
Good kit, the variant Me 262 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 [...]
I finished this kit a few years back. Simply said, it is no Tamiya! I have not built a lot of Dragon model kits, but what I have built have all had the same trait. Basically subcomponents or assemblies fit together well, but when you [...]
Finished the Messerschmitt Me262A-1a flown by Heinz "Pritzl" Bär who shot down 16 enemy aircraft flying the 262 out of his 220 aircraft shot down in total.
The Hobby Boss kit included decals to create the V355 experimental [...]

This was my 7th and last build for 2020. This kit's box and instruction sheet had a copyright date of 1978. The decals were in poor condition and not useable. Fortunately I had some decals from an Italeri kit. It was built out of the box [...]
Here is a Me 262A-1a/U4 W.Nr. 111899 flown by Major Willi Herget for JV 44, April 1945 Riem, Bavaria
Its the old Dragon kit which still looks the job. Thos who have buil it know that the upper wing to fuselage fit is not 100% but by [...]
All good things come in three, so here´s my dad´s third and last 262 for now.
Hobby Boss kit, "712" decals from Kagero book "Messerschmitt Me 262 In Defence of the Third Reich", rest of decals from the [...]
And my dad has finished the next 262.
Hobby Boss kit, painted with AK Real Color RLM81/82/76, EZ line for antenna wires and brake lines. The kit includes decals for both prototypes. I don´t know why but HB printed the [...]
