Default Tamiya He162 48 scale

Hi,
I have the kit all painted. Going to gloss coat it today and start putting the decals on it Tuesday. The seat is from Quickboost.

All comments welcome.

Wayne Beattie

Very nice. I always seem to forget that Tamiya did a Volksjager.

I just might have to find one of these kits for myself.

The QB seat is a nice addition.

Seat looks great, but first pics are too blurish - are you using macro on your camera?

For some reason it wouldn't focus. I wasn't using macro. Before I cropped the picture the objects in the background were in focus but the plane wasn't. Once I get some decals on I will try again.

Set it to macro, but stand a few feet away and use the optical zoom to frame the shot. Give it a try

Well I definitely recommend to use macro. On our subject the cameras are not able to focus properly - macro mode is very necessary...

Best way to autofocus on a model is set it in camera menu to "center" mode.

I think I found a cure. I used a different setting for the flash. Here it is nearing completion. I have paint the engine covers and put the tires on, glue the canopy on and finish the engine. Getting there.

Thanks for looking. All comments welcome.

Wayne
