Aeromaster 48-107: Me-262 Sturmbirds Part 1

Units: Various




Scott Van Aken

This particular sheet has markings for six aircraft and enough insignia and data markings for two. The fin swastikas are two part with separate white backgrounds. All but one of the planes is an A-1 variant. For this sheet the suggested kits are by Dragon and Monogram, but really, the Tamiya and Hobby Boss kits produced since this sheet was printed should work just fine.

First up, in RLM 74/75/76 is a plane from III/EJG 2 with a yellow fuselage band and heavy fuselage mottling.

A JG 7 plane is nexr with a streaky camouflage in RLM 81/83/76. This has a white swastika on the fin and the blue/red tail band.

A rather basic paint scheme of RLM 81 over RLM 76 is on this next airplane from JV-44.

With a light mottling in the RLM 81/82/76 colors, is this III./JG 7 plane with a yellow fuselage band.

Though an A-1a variant, the next RLM 82/83/76 painted plane was with Stab./KG 76 and has a green fin tip and forward engine ring.

Finally, the lone A-2 variant, which means it has the bomb racks, is this RLM 81/83/76 plane from 1./KG 76. IT has a white fin tip.

Decals are nicely printed and my experience with old Aeromaster sheets is generally quite good.
