III/EJG2 was a training squadron created to help German pilots to master the new 262 jet. Based at Lechfeld, this machine carries the locally applied green 3 as the S for schule(school) under the horizontal surfaces. I created those markings with home made masks, including the serial. The camo is RLM83/75/76 and references are to be found in the Jagdwaffe volume dealing with the jets and rocket planes. The Hobby -Boss kit is pretty good but a step under the Tamiya's one, albeit for half the price. Colors are Mr Color lacquers, weathering was done with oils. Cheers and have a great WE!

I'm also admiring the beautiful paint work. Another masterpiece Jean!

 

I didn't came to my mind at all, that Me-262s could have been painted with green and grey. This certainly "opens up" new interesting possibilities for my own 262 project as I've been struggling with one particular colour photo.

 

Cheers,

Antti

Merci Antti. I have use RLM 83 thought the Jagdwaffe opinion goes to RLM71, nevertheless it is plenty credible as the 83/75 was greatly used on the day fighters from late 44 to the very end of the war. best regards from France.

Very neat 262 with impressive paintwork.

 

However, I doubt the airbrushed shadings over the vertical fuselage panel joints. They were basically puttied and sanded down in order to use the Me 262 speed to the fullest advantage, so I view that shading more as licencia poetica than realism.

 

Kind regards,

 

Joachim

Hi Zigomar,

 

Brilliant looking 262, especially in this 'old' style camo. One thing that strikes me and that I particulary like a lot are these extended slats. They are not a standard option with the HB kit, how did you do them?

 

Cheers,

Geno
