Messerschmidt Me-262A-1a, 1/48t Tamyia

Recommended Posts

Janne,

I  finally remembered what your Me 262  build reminds me of in terms of getting a contest model completed: Your F-111 build.  And as I recall, you did rather well with it.

Janne,

   Decaling looks great. From the little I know about Me262s, they really took a beating out in the field. Restores aircraft look brand new. So the decision is really up to you as to the type of aircraft you want to display.

Joel

You know me....I like them grimey and dirty 😜

LOL, yeah it has scored in every contest I've put it in 😄 start date July 18th and final update September 2nd...the 262 is a much faster and simpler build though straight OOB. 🙂

Janne,

  Whether it's a simpler but, all that matters is what's on the table. And so far, you've got yourself another winner.

OK, close to finished now...


Some weathering to be done first.

I begun with a thin grey panel wash.

Wiped it off...distinct yet  not overpowering panellines, thaty´s what I like with grey panelwashes 😄

Streaking and dirt came in several small washes with what I could find in my weathering box 😛

Fantastic my friend!

Why a simple OOB build of your look so much better of a my model for which I spend months ?

Janne,

  If it was my build, in two weeks time, I'd have almost gotten the pit done at best.

Your speed of building is incredible!!!! :worthy::worthy::worthy:  For me it would take at least a year to do this! 

 

And the result is amazing!

Yeah, but you'd do a ton of scratchbuilding to make it correct as well 😄 I did this OOB without much detailing...it is a tammy kit you know 😄

How did the decals do? Looks sharp!

They behaved, got some silvering but I poked with an old air brush needle and added microsol and that seemed to take care if it.
