It's me again........This time it is the 2006 Christmas model. Another of my, and my Fathers, favorite planes. I must apologize for the photos, only one of the finished model turned out usable. so I have sent these shots taken before weathering and final assemble.
Model was painted with Tamiya acrylics, custom mixed, then faded to get the look that you see here. Weathering was then carried out with oils.
Another fun build for me, and a good test run for the ones I will be building for myself
Also an interesting historical note; Only 26 years separate this Me 262 from the Fokker D.VIII. Seeing these models together, the 262 looks like an alien spacecraft compared to the Fokker. It is amazing how far Aviation technology advanced during that time!
