This is the very nice Tamiya kit used along side the Cutting Edge Crossdressing Stormbirds decal sheet.  Yellow 17 was flown by Lt Hans Dorn of 1/JG7 and was captured at Fassberg by No 616 Squadron RAF in May 1945. I could find very little information on Dorn, I suspect he was a replacement pilot and fairly new to JG 7, seeing little or no action in his time there. As for yellow 17, she was designated AM-52 and ferried back to England for evaluation before being declared surplus and shipped off to Canada. From there, she was sold along with 300 other surplus aircraft and scrapped.

 

As I said the Tamiya kit is a real pleasure to build. Painted with Gunze RLM 82/83/76 with weathering kept pretty light as this machine looked almost brand new when captured, in all likelihood it was.

Excellent build there, Brad with a great paint finish. If only these planes had been preserved for posterity rather than scrapped.

Nice little build there👍  I'm a 616 Squdron affectionado with an old revell 1/32 262 in the stash, so if I may, can I use your photos for reference please?

 

The is an account of 616 Squadron pilot (Tony Dyer- I think 😕, but stand to be corrected) who landed his Meteor on an autobahn being used by a Meteor 262 unit- was this one of the aircraft I wonder?
