Here are some photos of my Me 262 which was a very speedy build.

The straps were added to cut the bomb racks of copper sheet itself, the pitot tube is made from 2 diameters of tubing, outside tubing is 0.8mm, inside then inserted 0.4mm.

Painting was done with Gunze Hobby Color RLM 81/82 and Model Master RLM 76.

For the bombs I painted with Gunze Hobby Color H uses 79.

6 hours was sufficient time for this build, the fit is convincing, though not perfect.

Greetings from Germany.
