Revell 1/72 scale Me 262

Shawn Payne Brownsburg, Indiana Shawn depicted Revell’s 1/72 scale Me 262 as a night fighter, camouflaging it with Testors Model Master paints. “I used Elmer’s white glue to mask the squiggly pattern,” he says, “a light gray wash to call out panel lines underneath, and a muddy dark brown wash [for the same] on top. “

    The two-tone top surface splinter camo is startling, and aesthetically complimentary. I motivates me to think of other unusual camo patterns for the two or three 1/72nd ME 262's I've got in my unbuilt collection. Kudo's on the visuals that grab your attention.

    Beautiful paint job, especially in such a small scale, I wimped out and did mine in a simple pattern so I understand the difficulty involved. Great model.

    Excellent work, I am working on the Trumpeter 1/32 Me-262, and I still do not know what technique to use for camouflage, Do you think this is a good technique for an totenkop Me-262 in 1/32?

    My first attempt on this was to use Poster Tact Putty.  But for 1/72 scale I was not able to make that work.  But in 1/32 scale I think it would work out fine and would give you the feathered edge it requires.
