Me262 Finished

I have, actually, enjoyed at least an hour and a half of hobby time over the last two weeks, and consequently, actually do, almost, have something to show you all.... soon :)

In the interim, however, here are some pictures of this old Heller Me262 that I found on my computer last night when looking for work related documents


I posted the start of this project about two years ago http://20thcenturywargames.blogspot.com.au/2010/08/me-262.html so it is kind of cool to finally be able to post the results of it


Two-seater, night-fighter version, without the radar array attached to the front


Crew figures would have been nice but didn't have any at the time


The decals were spares from my Me110, which was an old Revell kit. This was painted with Tamiya colours as I hadn't started using Vallejo at this stage


This model has had at least one game that I can think of, in the ground attack role. These were operational by mid 1944 and served with quite reasonable success until the end of the war, claiming over 300 victories; depending on which source you read.
