  2. Hi Zac Thanks much. The changes are mostly just small things that make a big difference to the overall look of the model.

  9. Hi all, This is the Dragon 1/48 He 162 Mistel kit. As this combination never actually existed, this what-if depicts a Heinkel He 162, which has been re-deployed from JG1 to a new bomber unit. The Me 262 represents a tired, in-service fighter which was sent back to the Messerschmitt factory to be reconfigured to a drone aircraft with a new warhead nose cone. I performed the following minor mods to the kit. He 162 - Eduard photo etched detail set used in the cockpit - kit pitot tube replaced with hypodermic needles - FuG25a IFF antenna added - photo etched DF loop added - landing g
