[MOC] Messerschmitt Me 262

Recommended Posts

The Messerschmitt Me 262 was the world's first operational jet-powered fighter aircraft. A historical documentary I saw on TV inspired me to build this aircraft in particular. It features retractable landing gear and just enough space to fit a minifig head inside the cockpit. The main colour of the fighter is Dark bluish gray while the underside of the plane is mostly done in Light bluish gray.

In order to retract the landing gear a small hatch has to be removed first and afterwards the landing gear has been retracted the hatch can be returned to it's position.

Amazing work! I love how the underside is polished, too.

Thanks! That was the the only part of the plane which actually sorted itself out pretty quickly, every other thing (wings, front, back, cockpit, landing gear...) required a lot of planing and experimenting in order to make it work.

Great job. The complicated shapes and curves are really well done.

Thank you! It certainly was a trial and error process.

You've done a great job getting the contours on this and I'm doubly impressed you've managed to fit a minifig head inside the cockpit! Lovely, thanks for sharing.

Not gonna lie, took me quite a bit of time until I was satisfied with the angles, proportions and everything else. Glad you like the end product!
