I picked up this little gem earlier this year for less than $10. I have a horrible habbit of buying toy soldiers with steep discounts. Here you see the ME 262 attacking a Peter Pig Sherman Calliope which I also just finished to give me a full battery (2 BF and 2 PP)
I knew I would have to repaint the the aircraft because this diecast ME 262 is painted as a post war test model captured by the US with US markings.
Overall the process to convert the model to a “German” paint scheme was relatively easy. I did not have to strip the paint. I primed the model using automotive dark grey primer. Then airbrushed on olive drab as a base coat. I hand painted the the bottom of the fuselage Pale Grey Blue from Vallejo, and then for the camo scheme I used the Luftwaffe green and German Camo Dark green. I then airbrushed on the camo effect using model air Tank Green. My compressor sucks and I still dont have too much skill at airbrushing so you can see some splatter in the little puffs of camo.
This model is a ME 262 in 1/100 scale. Its big but not too big. Here you can see it compared to BF aircraft.
My daughter has taken advantage of my terrain collection and set up a table for her Littlest Pet Shop movies she makes. Here is the setting for Snow White and the Huntsman. The table is divided into different scenese in the movie.
