1/48 Tamiya Me 262 "Clear Edition"

by Raśl Corral



Here is my Me 262 "Clear Edition" from Tamiya, the best plastic kit I have ever seen at any scale of this amazing Stormbird. There are plenty of spare parts to use in the future building different versions of this plane. The high detailed parts included by Tamiya and how easy is to put everything together will make you enjoy every minute you spend building and painting the kit.

I wanted to make something different this time and finish a complete "Clear" Me 262 so we can see all interior parts of the plane. I have spent more time detailing the interior than the exterior of the aircraft and I left unpainted most of the plane. At the end we have a somehow strange looking model but on the other hand a unique view of this fantastic airplane as we had never seen it before (just on the pictures of the Tamiya boxart).

I have not used anything "external".  All parts came in the box. Even the seatbelts were made by hand (just using paper!) and the decals were from the Tamiya box as well.  I can not imagine how it would look if you spent more time with photoetched parts detailing the interior!... Do you want to follow up step by step how I built this kit? Go to www.webmodelismo.com (website in Spanish).

Amazing model at a good price.  If you do not have it in your collection yet... what are you waiting for???
