Me-262b1/u1 1/100 by S&P

The next project this year is Bruno's Me262b. This was one of the earlier versions but thanks to our friend Brent, he provided the inspiration and a couple redesigned parts to make this happen. He provided the landing gear from his repaint and a redesigned canopy I tweaked to fit the B model, thanks Brent.
The 262 was Germany's first operational jet fighter. later in the series the 2 seater was converted to a radar equipped night fighter. the radar was added complete with reindeer games antennae, a back seater and because of the space the back seater took up the aircraft needed to use external fuel tanks.
Here are the parts layed out, the aircraft was recolored to model red 12 something I found on our plastic cousin's website.

There are a lot of starting points on this kit. I wanted to test the engine assembly so here is the sequence, parts laid out, roled out and assembled. Red 12 had a right engine fwd cowling painted fuselage color. no apparent reason why so I modeled it...

next up are the wings. these are simple fold over affairs, pic 2 shows the inner tips burnished to allow a fuller finished wing tip. the rudder and stabilizers were completed in similar manner...

Somebody wants to do a different two seater, you can make the Snowbird W/Nr. 501243, and I'm not giving more info on purpose!

Thankyou all. Brent I found a small glitch building the fuselage that I'll show here. I thought this project was cruising along , I used the color demarcation lines on the original fuselage then I noticed this...




the colors don't line up well, the forward gear well is of 3 different sizes, and the rudder line is way to black where it meets the rudder, on to recolor 2.0...
