Hi there, I wonder if my fellow BM colleagues can help point me in the right direction. I want to build a 1/48 scale Me 262 posed in an 'in-flight' wheels up configuration. I bought myself a Tamiya A1 kit which looks beautiful. But it is not designed to be built 'wheels-up' and has some lovely options for open gun bay, engine cowlings off etc. I do not want to cover up all this lovey detail, so I will build this one as intended in due course. i was wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of a 1/48 scale Me 262 kit that either comes designed with a wheels up option, or is not blessed with a ton of internal detail so I don't feel bad about manually re-configurating it to a wheels up configuration? Also, can anyone provide point me in the direction of some detailed photos of the underside of the Me262 in flight. Either model or real pics would be useful. Hope you can help.
Hello again! First one in the Christmas WIP, the one that started it all as a mojo restorer... A very quick build over a week or so, only a dozen parts-ish. Pilot from revell nato/us set. Stand came with the kit. The lowdown - grey stynylrez, then mr hobby black and white, both gloss. Decals on the paint. Few details touched in and stripes touched up. AK interactive ultra matt on top and satin on lowers. Top looked too bland so drybushed (how 90's) some dark grey on the edges, re-varnished and looks a bit better. All in something quick and easy that I didn't take too seriously, and restored 'the mojo' Thanks for looking! Tony
