    ... maybe this can solve it:

    Me 262 A-1a U5 underside.JPG

    Me 262 A-1a U5 gun bay.JPG

    Kit is a HobbyBoss 1:48 Me 262A-1a/U with aftermarket R4M racks and missiles added.
    Fit is fantastic: engine pods and undernose panels are simply snapped on.
    Comments and critiques welcome and encouraged.
    Kit is finished save some final touch-up and lacquering (and getting a replacement rudder!).

    Looking great. Well done. :thumbright: But I'm not sure about the underside colours that were found on Fw109Ds of the Platzschutzstaffel also known as the Papagei Staffel.

    No they weren't; I just like to use my own color schemes and thought a dark red version of the D-9s would look cool (pain in the butt to paint, though). I also used RLM 71 in place of RLM 74 (and I don't really care for the late-war 81, 82, and 83 schemes.)

    Love just the idea of RATO in '44/'45. Plus I kinda figure that this would have 004D engines if it also had X4s ready to go.

    Just wanted to see how really mean I could make a Schwalbe. Fun and easy kit for sure.

    Awesome work! Quite the firepower, but looks a little nose heavy with all those cannons up front. ;)

    Apparently the 6 nose guns was a planned U-pack (U5). The kit came with the four x4s (I had to move two to under the fuselage) and of course the 262 did use the r4ms. I figured that since the bomb clips for the 262A2 were under the nose (and even further forward than my X4s) that the weapon alignment I used should be at least reasonably feasible.

    Different seeing the 262 with the D-9 scheme under it. Not sure it works for me but good job.
