From the Cockpit

When I was on the road with Collings I shot hours of video footage. The GoPro camera really opened new avenues of filming. I haven't posted many videos, more or less a lack of time to edit, but I'll slowly add more as time permits. The first vid[...]

Airfix Me262B

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[...]

1/48 Tamiya Messerschmitt Pre-Production Me-262 “S” (Werknummer 130006), “VI + AF”

Here's another article that I hope you enjoy....................... This time it's based on Tamiya's excellent Me-262 in 1/48 scale. This model was started as I was "hitting the wall" and getting bogged down with research on the group of 4 Ta[...]

Airfix 1:72 Me262

Another great little Airfix kit. I added Eduard PE to detail the cockpit and used Mission Models paints. It is good kit, but one tricky point is the filler needed to blend in the joins between the wings and engine nacelles.

Speed build: the Airfix Me-262 in 48hrs

Hi Everyone! This is my "48hrs Me-262" from the new tool Airfix Me-262 1:72 kit. We - some modeling friends and enthusiasts - just held a friendly speed building competition this weekend. As far as I know this was the first such event in Hungar[...]

Parrots, Parachutes, and Pancakes.

A short Friday distraction to start the day. 73 years ago, almost to the day, Eduard Schallmoser climbed into his Me 262 (sometimes erroneously described as white 5 or 14, but was actually 'white 11') in response to incoming American B-26 Marau[...]

1/48 Monogram Messerschmitt Me-262 A1a, flown by 1. KG 51, WNr. 111625, “9K + FH”

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[...]

The new Airfix Me 262 in 1:72

Here are a few photos of the new Airfix Me 262 which is featured in the new issue of Airfix Model World Magazine. This is a superb little kit, detail is excellent. This should be in the shops by Autumn I believe. Hope you enjoy the photos!

Monogram 1/48 Messerschmitt Me-262 “Red 17”

The Me-262 is, hand's down, my all-time favorite aircraft. I really love them! In fact, when the "Stormbird Project" was building its replicas, I got in touch with them about volunteering. Unfortunately, the commute from central Texas to Seat[...]
