Tales from the Crypt Part 1
Messerschmitt Me 262A-1

by Chris Wauchop


Messerschmitt Me 262A-1a
Yellow 8, III./JG 7


Hasegawa's 1/32 scale Me 262A-1a is still available from Squadron.com




Chris Wauchop has a long history of model building and photography. These photos were taken by Chris around 1978, while he was working in the photo studio of a Sydney advertising agency.

The model is Hasegawa's 1/32 scale Messerschmitt Me 262A-1a in the markings of III./JG 7 as supplied with the kit.

The blast pen-hangar is formed from a cardboard box, carefully folded and shaded to match a photograph in a 1960s Kookaburra Publications booklet on the Me 262.



The photographs were taken with a Nikon F1 SLR, borrowed from the Studio - with permission!

The authentic ageing of the photograph is nothing more than authentic ageing! The sepia tone and stains are simply the result of more than 25 years of storage.
