ME262 completed.

An extremely rare sight in the skies above Normandy I know, but the ME262 is just such an iconic aircraft that I had to have on.! To say that the paint job was challenging would be an understatement, and it almost went in the bin on more than one occasion as I just could not get it to look right or even 'acceptable'. It took hours of painting and overpainting to get it to this stage at which point I had to stop or I could have gone on for ever! The dappling effect was a complete bu**er to do.




It's just a marker after all for the air strike rules, but does add a nice touch above the table. It can be removed from the flight stand and replaced by another aircraft model. I will be adding a Russian aircraft in due course as I'm quite enjoying these Airfix kits.

Still messing about with twigs and leaf foliage, here's a bit I made for the Tiger, I like it. and once a little more variation is added to the leaf shades it should be even better.
