Me-262 1/32 details

Recommended Posts

I hope they turn out great. Especially the instrument panel and cockpit parts. As far as I know there are no resin detail sets out for the Revell Me 262 1/32 and I would be one of your first customers. I am only a bit concerned that the 3D printer resolution is not yet good enough for really crisp results, but progress is so fast in this area, I may hopefully be proven wrong.

That's why I started my project to see what are the possibilities of the newest and the most modern 3D printing technology, hoping that outputs will be detailed enough and acceptable for modellers.

Agreed, I think regardless of current step resolution on 3D printers (excluding of course the super high end and expensive industrial printers) this is the future of our hobby.

While waiting for some printing results/tries I made some parts specific for late/end war series and for Czechoslovakian Avia S/CS-92. The Main Wheel leg with the scissors on both sides.

I don't know if i should print only scissors or the legs too. And also if create and print a pressure hose (just the part fixed to the leg) or let it to modeller's hand.

I would prefer scissors only (as I may opt for metal legs and as I prefer manually applied wires for the pressure hose).

 

The double scissors were suggested already at the end of the war by Messerschmitt and were supposed to enter serial production. However, I have not yet found an example of a late war produced Me 262 with these double scissors. 

 

Looking forward to learn more about the quality of the printed parts.

Is there any technology how to make cca 2,8 mm thick transparent armoured wind shield glass with a hem for Me 262 in 1/32? I'm thinking about sticking three (or five) plastic foils (then there could be visible inner wires). What kind of glue should be used, disperse, clear epoxy? Or any other idea? (3D clear print?)

Who needs technology? Just use your hands. An old plexiglas (perspex) ruler will provide the glass and a tin foil from an (emptied) bottle of wine, the framing. This is modelling after all!

l see that the Revell version is now out very soon. Will they fit as well?

Have you ever received 3D printed test parts? Would be excellent timing with the release of Revell’s 262a-1a last week.

I'm sorry, but I still haven't any catchable result neither from Prague nor from US producer who I'm cooperating with. But I still believe ... :-)

All parts are made according to real measurrements (as much as possible) and I can't guarantee that they will fit into every model.
