My god Tim does good work, as do you! His mistel trolly looks as good as the discontinued Cammett product (their ar377 mistel kit)  if not even nicer. 

Im really looking forward to seeing this project get finished, thanks for posting pix so far.

Urethane block is a material that can be cut, sawn, sanded, drilled, etc.  Used by Architects and engineers for models and prototypes.

 

There is NO plan to sell the dolly.

And a bit more old rope!

And on with the primer on the 262, I can already see some bits that need work.

A redesign of the Walter boosters, I found a pile of photos and rather than having you lot ripping the model apart, we decided to go ahead and correct them.  So there!

Next job this evening is more smoothing with some Micro Mesh.  So that's me gone.

mWell, some more painting after I rubbed down with Micro Mesh.  This time, some Mission Models RLM 76 on the undersides and fins of the he-162.

Then I mixed up some more RLM 76 with some RAF Underside Sky to get that weird colour seen on late model FW-190D-9's, sort of sky blue with not much blue in it!

Then after that had dried a bit I masked the whole nose and the outer clam shell door of the port engine and sprayed them with straight RLM76.

Here's my reasoning: The whole nose was built as a separate section, fitted out with gun mounts, ejection chutes, ammo feeds etc then bolted to the front of the aircraft.  To get any reasonable amount of explosives in there, they would have to remove it, yank out all the bits mentioned above then fill it up with the whoosh, bang, nasty stuff and bolt it back in place.  Except this one has gone back on a different aircraft. They would also have stripped out the undercarriage at the same time, with the trolley launch that's just dead weight.  Some strengthening at the front for the trolley strut underneath and the one on top for the He-162would be needed as well.

Excellent build, Sir!

The struts do look rather flimsy. Anyone know/willing to guess how much G that Mistel could pull before disintegration?
