Old stuff from way back - Tamiya 1/100 dual German jets and an old He162 made by who knows. Ideal space saver, impressive detail for their dimunitive size and comes with stands for both as well.

That's a definite hairy stick.  

Airbrushing a 1/100 Me262?  Hard work.  

Airbrushing a 1/100 Me163?  Insanity.

I used to love the Tamiya 1/100 scale kits and had a fair collection when I was a teenage. I never had this one though. If you can find it the F86/MiG-15 double kit is well worth building.

Just finished this yesterday.

Brush-painted with Model Master enamels & Polly Scale acrylics. The brake lines & DF loop made from beading wire with the aerial wire made compliments of my wife's hairbrush. Brass wire was used for the antenna in the lower rear fuselage.

Looks like I got a different boxing of this kit as the # on mine is 61604 with the copyright date on the instructions being 2004. The decal sheet doesn't include the swastika for the tail.

Fantastic work all around but the pint work on White 8 is the most impressive.  :wink:

Great builds and finishes gents :clapping:
I was addicted to these kits back in the 1970's, then I found out how inaccurate most were, the best being the '262/163, the Bucc, F-105 and B-52 :thumb:
The worst being the F-86, F-104 (the worst) and Mirage IIIC :fear:
