Most interesting project here urumomo, sir.
We were just talking about putties before, eh?
Not quite as familiar with this type as the similar
Arado 240 was it? Nowhere near the stork like
wing span as this. Very elegant, you could say.
Was it a one off prototype?

Edit: just read a quick wiki on it. 50,000+ feet
is near space. Awesome

I'm thinking of doing the camo like the lower Stuka :

No matter tank or aircraft, German camo patterns are fun and difficult to choose just one. However, I love me some Haunebu pattern

I was guessing that rectangular hole in the underside of the wing that I filled could be an ejection port but it was only on that one side and this kit has no gun barrels .

And alas ,
Scale Hobbyist has added this kit : https://www.scalehobbyist.com/catag...&ppp=48&sb=stocknumber&so=a&e=1&sc=72&man=SPH

You can see the opening on both wings now and they are aligned with the gun placement .
It looks like this kit excludes the giant scope and adds only the gun barrels protruding from the leading edge of the wings .
Maybe a much smaller scope ? Hard to tell .

I decided to go with camo along these lines :

I've ordered paints specifically for it .

And

I was forced to order this one : https://www.scalehobbyist.com/catag...-clear-nose/HBB00080377/product.php?kw=me-262
They wouldn't ship my order if I didn't ;)

So they practically forced your hand?

Well... You had no choice then, everyone can see that!

Happens to me all the time, I'll have to mention this to the miss tho, she thinks I'm doing something wrong!
