Revell 1/48 Messerschmitt Me 410B2/U4
Posted by UKguyInUSA on Tuesday, August 01, 2017 6:49 PM

Hello Chaps,

 

This is my 4th and final post that will have me caught up with the builds that I couldn't post on here due to the "Photobucket Saga".

 

Anyway, this one is the 2000 Revell re-boxing of a 1997 Revell/Monogram mold and comes with a nicely detailed cockpit and recessed panel lines.

It goes together really well, was a pleasure to build and is a nice representation of the Me 410 and the decals went down really well without issues.

 

There are some fiddly bits inside the cockpit that might be too fiddly for a beginner, but I'd imagine that anyone with half a dozen kit builds under their belt could handle it.

 

I built this straight out of the box except for the addition of seat-belts which I made from wine bottle foil.

 

So, I'm not going to say anything more about it except that if you have one in your stash and have been thinking about building it, you should enjoy it when you get around to it.

 

I hope you like the following images as much as I liked building her....

Wow, you did a great job with this build.  Looks beautiful.  I enjoyed watching your videos.  Really informative stuff there.  Yes

It's wonderful you were able to find someone in the modeling community that had the decals you needed, after yours disintegrated.  Smile

Cheers, Mark

Awsome work ! Thanks for posting the video links.

 

                      Dont worry about the thumbprint... paint it rust and call it "Battle damage" !
