Title: Me-262
Post by: JudgeDredd on April 02, 2018, 01:42:58 AM
So my daughter and her boyfriend are back from University for a week.

He's recently taken up modelling after seeing some images I posted and he's made a wee Spitfire, Focke Wulf and a Wildcat in Sheffield. He's painted these with the crappy paints that come with those models. So I decided to let him use my airbrush whilst he was down.

It fitted quite well because my daughter is learning to drive and wanted me to take her out. So I gave him a couple of models (a Hasegawa Me-262 and a Mitsubishi A6M5 Zero) and showed him how to use and clean the airbrush and some of the techniques I've learned and off I went with my daughter.

Well - it seems I can teach better than I can do...here's his Me-262

Another great job JD.

I bet your model B-17's and Lancaster's are trembling in fear.

Wow. He did a really great job! Nice weathered look.

All you need to do now is get him into gaming!

It wasn't mine OJ - it was my daughter's boyfriend. He did do a great job.

Great job he did. Great plane. Had the German's been able to produce that plane in the thousands and if Hitler didn't have a hard-on for making it a f/b they would have done some serious damage to the US & Brit bombers for sure.
