Revell 4160 1:72 Messerschmitt Me 262A-1a

Recommended Posts

It was nice to finally open again Revell Germany´s rectangular blue box.

I had built this model twice in the past, both times I ended up with a mess instead of a plastic model (the second time I ended with melted plastic because I used too much glue on my weight in the nose), but this time I got a fully assembled aircraft without much trouble.

Time has not been kind to the model, the moulds are worn, resulting in a lot of flash, particularly in the lower nose assembly.

Instructions forget to mention to open holes for the lower antennae and the circular one over the fuselage. I was able to open the hole for the circular one, but the lower one won´t be present on this model.

Tomorrow I´ll try to begin and finish painting it, so I can decal it the next day.

On the final paint stages, the RLM 81/82 unions were sanded with a 2000 grit sandpaper, the only thing remaining is to paint the undersides with light blue and the engine intakes in aluminium.

The aircraft was clear coated with Revell Clear varnish prior to taking the photos.
