Heinkel He 162B

by Gareth Hector


Heinkel He 162B




I've always had a fascination for the He 162. To me, it looks like the result of an experiment involving a Harrier and a Bf 110! I was therefore looking forward to translating its unique look into a digital model. 



I purposely avoided heaping detail into my Salamander. Instead I wanted to concentrate on its overall shape and paint scheme. 

I gave it a typical paint job for the type, based on a colour profile I had seen. I also spent time weathering the finish to a level I was happy with. Finally, I placed the finished model into a scene depicting a hypothetical encounter with a B24 Liberator. 



Overall I'm pretty happy with the completed mesh and plan to adapt it into the D variant with forward swept wings and butterfly tail.
