Some progress..

I can try how the holder will look made from plastic (3D printed), but by the best I think it would be made from PE. I could share unfurled casing drawing to some producer.

In the end it should look like this:

Here's my first attempt for Me 262 B1/U1 Nightfighter inner fuselage board. That's the logitudinally placed one with FuG16ZY, FuG120, FuG25 and FuG125 devices.

The second board (placed transversaly) will be bigger stumper :-(. I have only few photos of its left side but none of the whole board or of the right side :-(. What more, there were placed FuG218 devices (Sender, Empfänger, Sichtgerät and may be others) for which I don't have exact dimensions :-(

It's placed in National Naval Aviation Museum in Penascola (FL):

The second one, actually in German camouflage is placed in The Aviation Museum Kbely in Prague:

And I think that's all :-(

 

That photo was taken by me (Pensacola native) and I can say I've touched an Me-262 now. You can't do that to the one at the Smithsonian without fear of falling over the guard rail.

Hello,

based on available photos of Me 262 B1a/U1 fuselage interior I've tried to make model of FuG217(218) devices placed on fuselage partition. Could anyone help me to arrange it better or give an advice what more to add?

Thank you for any help.

My first thought was she must have really been a tease, but that is just my warped mind. :wicked:

You are really doing some excellent detail work! Those oxygen bottles would look awesome!

I will offer to print a few of these files for you if you like at no charge as prototypes, I also have the 004 on the drawing board in 1/24 that i am doing for a Yak-15  but we can scale that down.

I can't say more than we are still waiting for test print results (maybe during few next days could some appear).
