1/48 Hobbyboss Messerschmitt Me262/U5

Gallery Article by Mark Forster on Dec 20 2012



This kit was built OOB and it truly was a nice model to build, every thing fit together and I only used a bit of putty around the starboard nacelle and some around the wing joins underneath where they met the fuselage.

I used Xtracrylic paints for the majority of the model and used some Tamiya red/brown mixed with black for the post shading.

All of the fuselage mottle pattern was sprayed freehand as was the splinter pattern which was then later resprayed by placing Tamiya tape on the wings and down the spine of the fuselage to get a straight edge.

Hope you enjoy the photos.
