Mosquito Hunter...1/48 Messerschmitt Me262B-1a/U1 Nightfighter - NEW PICS ADDED


Recommended Posts

#1/2016

New year, new production line and finally my dad´s first finished model.
The new Hobby Boss kit with Aeromaster decals, stencils partly from the sparesbox, brake line on front leg and seat belts added, painted with Gunze and Tamiya acrylics.

Aircraft of Kommando Welter later designated 10./NJG11 towards the end of war. Only a handful two-seat nightfighters were used in battle more or less successful mostly against Mosquito NFs and British 4-Mots.
"Red 8" was captured by British troops and later found its way to South Africa were it is now displayed in a museum.

Very well done, I particularly like the way you have done the mottling on the fuselage.

I've just come back to this and must tell you that as a direct result of seeing these two, I've just ordered the two-seater.

Now, does that mean because you made me do it, you owe me the money?! ;)

I wash my hands in innocence..... :whistle:

These Hobby Boss Me 262 kits look like they are a good build, very nicely done.

In our opinion the Hobby Boss 262s are more or less equal to Tamiya but cheaper :-)

Yet again a beautiful model with an interesting camouflage scheme. Flawless execution and inspiring to look at - well done. I like the quirky nmf tank next to the black one. I love the photo with the testbed.

The different coloured tanks can also be seen on the original a/c short after capturing, the museum version has two black tanks nowadays.

Often hard to distinct between nmf and light grey on b/w pics, it´s possible that the tank was painted in RLM76 or something similiar but it seems more like metal on the pics.

Hello,Reini78 - My compliments to your Dad on a pair of fine looking builds of these 'Me262's. I love the quality and detail of the paint and finishing work and commend the clean patina.They make two splendid tributes to the type.All the best,Paul.

Very excellent as always! Red 8 is also my favorite! So you say this is a good kit? I will order one! Are the anntenna's out of box?

All the best and best regards to your father!

Yes, the Hobby Boss 262s are as good as the Tamiya kits, they also seem more or less like a copy :-). No 262 expert, but one thing they got wrong are the flare chute openings on the rear side fuselage, they are only on the left side but on the HB kits they are on both sides, so you have to do some filling, but besides that, the HB kits are very good.

The antennas are from the box, a bit thick but if you don´t like PE or other metal parts like my father, this is the way to go :-)
