This is my build of mengs me 410 b2/u2/r2. 

In the markings of 3U+CK of 2./zg 26. While based at Konigsberg-Neumark in the summer of 1944

The following aftermarket  items were used

Aires. - resin cockpit. 

Vector. - corrected oilcoolers. 

The following Quickboost. - ju 88 c/g 151 20mm gun barrels (under fuselarge gun pack). 

Ju 88 mg 151 20 mm gunbarrels (internal gun pack). 

Me 410 spinners & propellers. 

The following lead wire. 2mm,. 4mm,. 6mm. (engine & cockpit details & brake lines). 

Streached sprue was used for the radio aireal 

Extracolor enamels were used for the following rlm colours. - 02, 66, 74, 75, 76,

Humbrol were used for the rest. 

A Badger 200 g was used with a fine tip. 

For the weathering the following was used. - 

Mrp. - exhaust soot 

Pastels

Ak. - aircraft engine effects

I enjoyed this build but! (I did a wip of this build) and would build another

I had a couple of issues 

1.the lower port wing joint needed filled with a plastic shim 

2. The biggest issues were with the canopie. If you fit the nose glazing to the fuselarge the main canopie is too wide for the fuselarge. So I fitted the main conopie to the fuselarge so it fitted. Then used plastic card to pack out the nose glazing to fit the wider fuselarge. Also the conopie is on the thick side so I also had an issue fitting it round the rear aiming controls

Looks great! Very convincing blotches - are they handbrush or airbrush-painted?

(Unfortunately the German spelling of the stencils isn't correct.)

She has got that hard-to-attain, convincing 'real' look.

 

And I just love those wheel tracks in the grass. The fact that they're curving adds a sense of life to the whole composition.

 

Very impressive modelling.

 

Kind regards,

 

Joachim

Thank you Joachim, i'm toying with the idea of adding a ground power unit and a work platform made using barrels and planks of wood. Nick

Very nice build. I will have to check out the WIP.  Adding the extra bits will add that little extra for sure.

Wow! Excellent model and the base is just as well done! You put a lot of work into this one and it shows. I wish we had an accurate one in 1/72!

Thank you Mike, to be honest  the base is really easy to build. It just mdf covered with grass mat with dyed coffee stures cut to size for the boards. Nick
