Model Monday – Pegasus Hobbies ME-262

Little Rockymountainnavy is into building model kits these days and really has a love for World War II aviation. We have been collecting the Pegasus Hobbies 1/48th scale series and the latest one he has built is the Messerschmitt Me-262. This is a wonderful E-Z Snap series kit molded in dark green. Assembly was super easy and the parts fit the well with few gaps. This model even has a metal counterweight to place in the nose that will balance the aircraft on the tricycle landing gear. We will be painting and applying decals in the coming week.

The model did inspire Little RMN to dig into my library and pull out several books on the Me-262 and World War II jet aircraft. This has led to another spate of Lego creations and further exploration into German jet plans (ala Luft ’46). Once again, a model has inspired greater learning by Little RMN. After all, isn’t that what a good hobby does for you? (Image Courtesy modellingmadness.com)
