  1. Hi Friends... I started a 6 model Luftwaffe build binge... I am on my second plane, a He162 wk number 120067, otherwise known as White 4. I have found 4 to 5 photos of this plane that I am studying. I even found a parted out photo of it late 1945/46 with faded paint, but topside of wing visible... The help I need is from Experten on late war German aircraft... i have read that the early builds of the He162 (which this is) had the fuselage painted in RLM71. From the photos, the power egg is darker than fuse, so its probably RLM81. The fuselage is slightly lighter than this, but way darker than RLM82 light green. Do you guys know if there was truth to the RLM71 fuselage rumor, or are bets that its fuselage is RLM83 dark green? The 83 worries me as its darker than 81, and power egg is darker than the fuselage. Anyone out there done a He162 and careful about colors? Thanks for any help you have...
  2. Hey guys! Finished this one up a few weeks ago, a little what-if build to cleanse the palette and have a little fun. I built it as an "all metal" Salamander as if there was no aluminum shortage in Germany at the end of the war, panel lines and rivets added, and gave it a speculative scheme in Blue RLM 83 and 76. Consider it a semi-Luft46. Modifications include: - Panel lines and rivets added - Quickboost seat - Quickboost gunsight - BarracudaCast main wheels - Eduard Zoom - Master barrels, pitot, gear indicator - Custom masks for markings - AK Real Colors paints
  3. Hello Folks, As my A-10 is currently stalled whilst I work out how to resolve a few issues I thought I would start on another kit. Just to stop the dust from settling on my workbench of course! Its the Trimaster kit of the Heinkel He162A-2 in 1/48 with a resin pit by Aires, etch from Eduard and Montex masks. I bought this kit and the associated aftermarket as a 'job lot' at Sword and Lance in Darlington in 2014. And thought it would be a nice quick and easy build to keep me occupied. It was the box picture and the resin bits taped to the lid that caught my attention (the opportunity to add extra details to cockpit and engine!). The box was still sealed in it's cellophane. Anyway, here is the obligatory in box shot... 'Only three sprues included in the box? hmm that's not much for your money' thought I and then I decided to have a look inside the little blue 'packing' box on the right, and these fell out... Sorry about the poor photo I didn't realise it was part in shadow until too late. I'll include better shots later in the build. Etched detail parts for the cockpit and engine, and a set of PE hinges (to assemble!) for the cowlings. There's also white metal landing gear, ejector seat, and even a cast nose weight shaped to fit in the nose! The remainder are bits of brass rod, wire, tube etc, for the other details. I wonder why the original owner bought the resin pit and Eduard etch? Speaking of which, here's the aftermarket... And a better picture of the resin 'pit before cleanup. Well, these things don't build themselves, so better get started.... More to follow later Al (Edit to correct typo's)
  4. Howdy all, I have a question. Does anyone know if the Aires cockpit set for the Tamiya 1/48 Salamander (https://www.scalemates.com/kits/150624-aires-4359-he-162a-cockpit-set-and-wheel-bay), provides the large spring visible on the bulkhead of the forward landing gear, as seen in this pic from the 1/32 Revell kit When I look at the image of the set, that spring doesn't appear to be present, and it doesn't appear to be present in the instruction images for the Tamiya kit (very basic). I'd love to try and leave the nose off, but I don't want to simply buy that set if it would be missing parts for that, making the reveal incomplete. I do plan to get the gun bay set, and figured this would be another nice bit to open up. If anyone has any experience with that set, please let me know Many thanks, Gaz
