Me 410 1/48 Monogram x2
Posted by TREYZX10R on Sunday, July 28, 2019 6:17 PM

Took a little over a year and finally finished up these 2 old Monogram kits. These have been covered a lot so I'll keep it short. First I gotta give a Huge shout out to Chuk W as I used his excellent build for reference and inspiration. I wanted one 'in flight' and one on the ground ,the gear down version got a lot of upgrades

 

 

 

 

The leading edge slats got cut out and resin upgrades added

 

 

 

 

 

 

The engine mounts needed to be scratch built, a bit tedious but worth the effort


 

The radiator cooling flaps on the full scale are automatically opened and closed by a thermostatictly controlled servo so the gear down ones needed surgery to open them up more than the in flight version


In flight after the Pilot and Gunner got some arm surgery


Splinter cammo and preshading, pretty standard 


Bottom shot shows the Rocket (Mortar) tubes on the gear up


And finished shots of the Me410's of JG26, The Chevron in flight is the mount of Major Eduard Tratt, ace with 38 Victories. The 410 was a bit short of what was hoped for and had a very troubled development series starting with the ill handling 210 . I hope you all enjoy the pics

Very nice work Trey, although I was having trouble seeing the photos due to the small size with these old eyes. I couldn't seem to enlarge them. I have this kit. I should break it out one of these days.
