TRUMPETER-AMMO Contest and my Me-262.

Well guys I managed to get my Trumpeter Me-262 fixed and finished just in time to enter the TRUMPETER-AMMO Contest. The page it is on can be found here:

If you think it is worthy please vote for it, thanks!

Leading up to the completion of the weathering the wash must have eaten into the glue of the main undercarriage wheels as they both came off! To fix this I had to pull/break off the main undercarriage legs, then drill and pin them. Both for the wheel to undercarriage leg and undercarriage leg to fuselage joins! I nearly packed it in at that point as I don't have a very good selection of drills and basically had to expand the holes using a pointed file. Not very precise but it got the job done and once super glued back into place everything seems to be OK. Well, good enough to re-photograph at least and it is stable on its 'feet'.

So with that done it was time to get some good shots to enter into the competition with.
