Eduard 1/144 Messerschmitt Me262A

2 kits in the one box, which is especially nice, given that you get plenty of nicely produced decals with which to decorate your models.
That said, Sweet kits these ain't. Don't get me wrong...they're very nice and aeons ahead of the 90's 1/144 kits and, indeed, most of the new 1/144's out there.
It's just that Sweet have spoiled me.

Whilst the fuselage halves joined together, without need of filler, and the cockpit was adequately detailed, the engine to wing join required quite a bit of work. The undercarriage is very nicely detailed, but the noses came with the bumps found on the two-seat nightfighter version, to provide mounting points for the radar antennae. Okay, so it was a simple task to sand them off, but a tad lazy on the part of Eduard, methinks.

The pics show the unweathered models.
They also show some rather mediocre attempts at stippling in 1/144, for the mottling.
It's my madness that keeps me sane.
