Vintage Monogram ProModeller ME-262 WIP
Posted by Justinryan215 on Monday, October 12, 2020 2:17 PM

I picked this old kit up a few years back from the 'bay....it was a pretty affordable price if I recall-I usually don't like to spend alot on kits-and when I opened it up, to my surprise, there was a photoetch kit from, Airwaves.

I decided to pull it down a couple weekends ago, and get started on it....

As usual, I started with the 'ppit:

and somehow, I neglected to take some photos of the finished cockpit!

Gun Bays and seamwork commenced:

And this is where I left off last night, awaiting a mask for the glass, and some primer to check that everything is straight and smooth:

 

 

Thanks for looking!

It's always a nice surprise when you open up the box and find some extra goodies!

It sure is!  The next trick is to figure out how to work with the photoetch with these gisn't sausage fingers!

Finally got some bench time, and got the fueslage primed, based in black, and the first two colors applied!

 

While waiting to get back to the bench, I ordered this guy...

and got started with the 'Zenithal Highlights'

 

and then started with the second color

it may be another two weeks before I get back to the bench, as I really only hit the bench on the weekends, and I have a Cubscout campoing trip this up coming weekend, so that will cause some delay...

Great project, and nice progress, Justin!  I like the mottling technique.

That's a great figure, too.  I've got that one and a couple others from Djiti-maybe from the same eBay source!  They've got nice, crisp detail.

I did squeeze in a little bench time last night, while my wife and son were at confirmation practice, until I was unhappy with my brushes.  I did get his face painted.  My cheap brushes dont have anything "professional" left in them.  I have some new brushed on order, so I will continue once they arrive...

Very nice and extremely wonderful WIP!  I really like your color variations as I still struggle with this.  As for the 262, it's one of my favorite aircraft to build!
