    Love the paint job. Excellent work for such a small scale. I might have sanded all those rivets off as the 262 was pretty smooth but I think it looks great.

    Nice work mate!

    Is that paintscheme based on photos? Never seen one quite like that on a 262 - more akin to that of Fw 190D-13 '10'.

    That's the old Airfix mold (maybe old FROG?) that I bought in a blister pack years ago isn't it? Actually built that one. What a piece of crap I remember it being when compared to Hasegawa's. You did a bang-up job with it though! Mine...not so much...

    Just found this thread. Love any work in my favorite scale 1/72 . Any chance of a close-up shot of the cockpit?

    Very nice work. I love the squiggly camo, very difficult for some of us to achieve in such fashion.

    I did - but didn't get as good a finish on it as that - the cammo is a very unusual but interesting scheme -well done
