Blue Öyster Cult's Secret Treaties

Whilst it wasn't the first military turbojet to fly, the Messerschmitt Me262 was the first to become fully operational. Faster and more heavily armed than its RAF counterpart, the Gloster Meteor, the 262 could well have seriously altered the balance of air power in the latter part of WW2 had it been available in greater numbers. Both the single-seat A and dual-seat B series can be built here, and kit enhancements and conversions are encouraged.
Runs from 10 August 2019 to 22 September 2019.

Blue Öyster Cult's Secret Treaties

#1

Post by nils »

thought i would enter this Gb with a twist, namely an Me262 (well, more of an Aero S-92) that was featured on the cover of Blue Oyster Cult's album "Secret treaties". it also features a little tribute number to the Me262 8-)

the kit i will be using is a Trumpeter Me262A-1A with homemade decals (or retrokit decals if i can get hold of them).

Yes - all of them. Little known fact. Goering also mandated that they grow long shaggy hair. They never teach that at school these days.

That’s true. For example history never dwells upon the latter hairstyles or singing career of Adolf “Judy” Galland.

Great minds and all that. As I do from time to time, I'd drafted my next instalment for my thread on MS Word, all ready for when the starter fires his gun (no, I haven't commenced building the thing). Lo and behold, I lamented the lack of decals in the RetroWings' Pulkzerstörer conversion, noting that the company does do decals and citing the Blue Öyster Cult's "Secret Treaties" as an example. I even pondered whether someone would model that 262. Definitely got my answer! :lol:

ajmm, "Yes - all of them. Little known fact. Goering also mandated that they grow long shaggy hair. They never teach that at school these days."
And don't get me started on 'the Kiss Army'.

Well, there was "Babes in Arms".

Nils, we will be expecting a pilot figure just like the one in the album artwork. Anyone know of a 1/144 rendition of the Grim Reaper? :P

due to lack of time and health problems, im withdrawing from the GB, the Me262 will be built at a later date.
this is due to an upcoming surgery (umbilical hernia).

-Area 88 Air Base diorama
-F4U Corsair (US Navy & Fleet Air Arm)
-F4F wildcat (US Navy & Fleet Air Arm Martlet Mk.IV)
