ME262A1 U3 - Hobbyboss 1/48
« on: November 21, 2011, 02:15:23 AM »
Hello Friends,

Just more one project, but in this case I just paint this one for a friend, he build and I paint it...

A little history about the plane:

The Me 262A-1/U3 was an interim reconnaissance variant. The most distinguishing feature of this model are the bulges over the gun bay area which were necessary to provide clearance for the RB20/30 cameras mounted in the nose. An arrangement of one RB 20/20 and one RB 75/30 was also used.

A glass window located in the cockpit floor allowed the pilot to view what was being photographed. A few Me262A-1a/U3s were fitted with a single 30mm MK 108 cannon, but most were unarmed.

here the pics:

Yes, beautiful work! The scheme reminds me of the "smoke ring" pattern sometimes seen.
