Revell 1/32 Me 262B-1/U-1 "Red 10"
By Michał Jurczak
Revell's new night Schwalbe. Unfortunately it is not a "shake and bake" kit. Panels near the radio operator seat requires work to fit into cockpit sides. All plastic parts needs a little bit of cleaning before gluing, not everything fits nice. Instrument panel should be lower to not interfere with front part of canopy. Clear parts must be polished because of nasty bubbles on the surface. Fortunately kit is a very nice (some say best) representation of Me 262.
- Eduard interior and seatbelts. Mask for canopy
- Master FuG 218 Radar
- Montex masks for Trumpeter kit (I don't recommend, size of numbers is wrong)
I added some cables here and there and riveted surface. Pitot tube is made form syringe needles. I used Tamiya paints, Gunze Gun Chrome and C08 Silver, Alclad on drop tanks, MIG rigging for antenna wire, oil paints and Tamiya weathering master set.
