  1. Hi! I'm interested in this decal set. Your decals are the best quality decals I've ever used. Anyhow, I was just wondering if the set includes decals for the original German markings of Me 262b-1a W.Nr.110306? For example, is there a decal for the red 6? Thanks! Regards, Jon
  2. Hey Marus, I'm working on an Academy 1/72 Me 163S. It's the two-seater trainer version.That'll be my next one! Are you working on anything at the moment?
  3. Thank very much guys for your kind words. Yeah, it's a tail-sitter. My next one won't be!
  4. Here's my Me 262 A-1a Kit: Revell Scale: 1/72 Replacement parts: the starboard engine is a resin part by CMK. While this part is very nicely detailed, it leaves a sizeable gap at the joint between the engine and wing. To fill in the gap, I used generous amounts of Tamiya putty. After lots of wet sanding, the gap was gradually filled in and smoothed. It took a lot of elbow grease, though! The canopy is by Rob Taurus. It's very clear and looks great. In contrast, the canopy supplied by the kit is thick, a poor fit, and has no framing. Scratch-built details: epoxy (wheel bay and inter
  5. Thanks guys for the interest and comments. Also, Kevin thanks for editing the pics! And Clumsy Dude, I'm glad you told me about the BB code. For the mottling, I used templates made by Airwaves. It would have been a lot harder for me to have done the mottling without the templates! Just for kicks, I've posted here an original photo of "Black 4." I am absolutely in love with the Me 262. >Jon
  6. Hello everyone, This is my Me 262 by Academy. The markings and paint scheme represent "Black 4." This Me 262 served with JG7 and was found abandoned at an airfield in Prague. The decals are mostly from Cutting Edge. I used Tamiya paints, including AS 23(light green), AS 24 (dark green),and AS 5 (light blue). Based on my interpretation of the black and white photos and commentary I've read about "Black 4," I went for an overall RLM 83 upper-surface. For the replacement nose section,I tried to make it look like a very light shade of RLM 76. I sprayed multiple coats of Tamiya AS5 and TS 27 (
  7. Everyone, thank you so much for the great advice! I really appreciate everyone's support. I'm not comfortable with removing the puttied area and replacing it with superglue...I don't have the confidence! I'm very tempted to try using nail-polish remover, as suggested by Old Dog and D Bellis. I've also got a can of Tamiya fine surface primer...is that similar to the Mr Surfacer 1500 that Out2gtcha mentioned? Would spraying some of that stuff onto the puttied area help smooth out the puttied surface at least somewhat? I've tried wet sanding the surface more and the puttied gap looks better now t
  8. Hello, everyone. I'm working on a Revell 1/72 Me 262. I've attached and glued on a resin, replacement engine to the wing. However, after attaching the engine, I noticed there was a long gap that runs between the side of the engine and the kit part. I filled this gap with grey tamiya putty ("basic type") and have sanded it quite a bit, but the surface of the puttied area still looks rough. Any thoughts about how I can improve the appearance of the puttied area? How can I get it to blend in better with the wing? Help! Any advice would be tremendously appreciated! >Jon
  9. On Pinterest, I came across this photo of a very unusual Me 262 with a collapsed nose wheel. I've never seen a photo of an me 262 with a paint scheme like this one. Does any one have thoughts, knowledge, or interpretations regarding what the paint scheme might be? Check out the link to see the photo... https://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/7585872406/in/photostream/ The nose is especially striking. My guess is that the entire nose section has been primed with a light grey primer or else in a "whitish" shade of RLM 76 "light-blue." Either of these colors was almost certainly pai
