Aloha,

Last year I was able to visit the San Diego Air and Space Museum, where they have a Jumo engine for the Me262 on display. I took a bunch of photos (31 in all) and wanted to offer to the group to either put them here, or create a separate thread for them? Looking for advice on the more appropriate location. Could be useful for you super-detailers out there.

Thanks,
zon

Feel free to put them here, Zon. I'm sure they would be enjoyed by everyone.

Any motivational or detail pictures will be welcome.

Sounds good Zon. You could also submit them for a photo feature for the wider Aeroscale community to check out, in case they donít follow this thread. Just go to the ďFeaturesĒ area on the header and follow the instructions to submit.

Looking forward to seeing those images!

Cheers, D

Aloha All,
So, not in any particular order, here are the photos I took of the Jumo 004-B1 for the Me 262. Again, this is as on display at the San Diego Air and Space Museum, which I visited in the late summer of 2018.

I kept the links original size from Imgur, so I apologize for any drag this places on your system, but I thought it better to keep the photos large to keep the detail for any super detailers out there.
































































Damian, I did not see any instructions for how to submit a feature, so still looking into that.

Happy Modeling,
Zon

And in the spirit of inspiration, this diorama was also on display at the San Diego Air and Space Museum. Dennis Gerber is the original author and I post these photos for inspiration and discussion purposes only.















Happy Modeling,
Zon

Hey Gary

How can I miss one of your campaigns



I'm in with this kit. It has been in my stash since 2008 and Big Boss wants me to stop buying and start building.

Good to see you here Raj! Itíll be great to see what you make of the Tamiya kit. I too feel some pressure to build more and buy less. But itís difficult with so many great kits being released in such rapid succession.

Have been a member for quite awhile now and have enjoyed seeing all the excellent modeling. I guess its time to start actually participating.

Enlisted

I'll figure out how to post pictures before we kick things off

Welcome aboard Matt, great to have you join us.

The Kitmaker Gallery is a bit cumbersome to upload and link, you are better off with an external hosting site. I use Imgur now after the Photobucket fiasco, and it is free and dead easy!

Looking forward to following your build!

Cheers, D
