Good start! :wub:
(And I wish you a good health, this is more important for sure).
I have many Me-262Z (models and drawings) displayed on the Messerschmitt part of my site
Adding your one will be a pleasure! :thumbsup:
Correction : no need of extra work at all! Like that, it is a pleasant addition to the 262Z family, a piece that was missing in my collection!:

Nils, I saw a bunch of Apaches and Blackhawks around the same time.  Of course, I'm in Ohio...  Transiting through the Columbus airport, probably, and headed west.  Unsettled my wife a little while she was gardening.

Visited a few in north central Ohio this week.

T-33 at Wadsworth airport.

Huey and cannon, Medina, Ohio, at the VFW.  In the square in downtown Medina there was a smaller cannon, probably the ubiquitous 37mm antitank gun.  Didn't have a chance to photograph it.

Huey, Holmesville, Ohio VFW.  Also a Stuart tank.

Looking forward to this one, and hoping for several entries given the length of the build.  Early ideas include:

F-111K-no explanation needed
Harvard FG.1-ISTAR/CAS based on Raytheon T-6 Texan II c.2025 (only issue is one kit available in 1/48.
Tucano FG.1-As above based on A-29.  Kit readily available
Canberra F.10-Long Range missileer loaded with Red Deans
A handful of random "RAF in Vietnam" ideas...
Nice bright yellow NH-90 RAF Rescue helo

July is a busy month for me at work and I'm hoping to get to Oshkosh for the airshow, but hopefully I can get started on one fairly early.

Latest build has languished on the bench for a few weeks.  Kit is the Hasegawa P-40E with decals from the AMT Tomahawk.  It was a good deal on eBay and came with Eduard prepainted seatbelts.  Not a bad kit with some nice detail in the cockpit, but a little PSR required.  Paints are airbrushed Hataka acrylics.  It's not a perfect build, but I hit the point where I wanted it done and off the bench onto the shelf. 

I think the third kit I ever built when I was about 7 was a P-40. It was a rainy day of model building at my cousin's house.  Don't know the kit but it was molded in dark green, and it was still all dark green after I'd clumped it together with an entire tube of Airfix cement.  This one turned out a bit better.   Even though I absolutely love the P-40, this is the first one I've built since then I think. 

Apologies for another Real World one is a Whif, just started tonight.   :lol:

I had hoped to get this done for the One Week GB, but vacation and a few days felling under the weather left it unopened.  So I figured a nice quiet Saturday night at home was a good time to get cracking. 

Backstory will involve enough backlash over the 2001 F-16 cancellation that the NZ government looked for a cheaper, yet respectably capable tactical aircraft.  Embraer, eager to expand their Oceania market saw an opportunity for their AMX...

Thinking about a blue/gray scheme with an anti-shipping/maritime strike always though it's early days and other ideas are percolating.
