Czechoslovakian Me 262s - 1:144 Eduard

Recommended Posts

Here are a pair of Eduard 1:144 Me 262s which I built back in 2008. Both were the E-Day bagged kits with options to build either a one- or a two-seater variant of the aircraft assembled and flown in Czechoslovakia after WWII.


Both were fully painted and varnished with brush. Since no etched parts were included, all aerials and probes were made from stretched sprue as were the radio wires. The only modifications I made was make a little hole in the tips of the engine intake cones and cover the gun ports on the fuselage topside as no guns were carried (the shell ejection chutes remained though).

 

Firstly, Avia S-92 (S-92.2) "V-33", VLU (Military Aeronautical Institute), Czechoslovakian Air Force, late 1947.

Nice pair of 262's. The Eduard 1/144 kits are very nice.

Thanks Hobo. They are indeed. These were the first two I built. I then built a couple more and have several to build in my stash!

Very clean and neat paintwork there. Great work as ever.

They look stunning, hard to believe they are so tiny!

 

What paint colour have you used? I recall the paint guide with the kits suggests RML02.

Tim, they were painted with PollyScale RLM02 directly over the olive green plastic.

These are nicely done. How do you get them to stay on their wheels? The Me 262 is very tail heavy, and there isn't much space for weight.

Thanks a lot Spejic. Fortunately there is just enough space forward of the cockpit to pack sufficient weight to keep them on their legs. I even managed to squeeze lead balls either side of the nose wheel bay. As you can imagine it was quite a relief when the kit did sit with the weight packed as otherwise the only other place to add more weight would have been in the forward section of the engine nacelles. With the Eduard kits, packing the nose well is enough!
