    Goodevening from Greece!

    I am currently building a Me 262A-1a in the 32nd scale. I came upon some pics from a A-1a/U3 where it was turned to a standard A-1a by changing the nose section. These pics were coming from a scrap yard, and it was clearly visible that the wing section was changed also, and they were unpainted. Problem is I cant find these photos again. Is there any of you that might help?

    Thanks in advance for any kind of help!

    I found a pic of "Red 33" that is exactly like your "Red 34" profile, lying nose down on a field. Will try to scan. No further info on the caption. from "Me 262: Arrow to the Future" by Walter J. Boyne

    Do you mean thse images? If you do it seems that the plane wasn't the Red 34 but the Wei├če 34 of the NaGr 6, Munich-Neubiberg, May 1945. The numbers were painted as the white outline only.

    :cool:. You should create a thread in Modeling section / Your Completed Kits sub-one as well. I think all guys here are interested in watching of a such great work. :thumbright:
