I've been a big fan of the 262 for years and have built several GWS foamies with varying degrees of success over that period. When I saw that Dynam had released a 262 I immediately jumped on the first one I could find in stock. I quickly discovered that I wasn't the only one in line. Although it took me a while to get my hands on the plane this turned out to be a blessing instead of a curse. By the time it had arrived there were already a plethora of folks posting and boasting about what a wonderful flying model Dynam had created. In no time at all the knives, glue, spackel and paint emerged as folks began to modify and improve that which Dynam had created. The results have been spectacular as everything that could have been improved seems to have been by one enthusiast or another. Naturally I took full advantage of this and compiled a list of mods that I knew I wanted to implement. Below you'll see the list and the pictures of the progress I've made.
This post is ongoing and will be changing from time to time as I experiment with new mods and techniques on version II. Most of the updates will be in the form of pictures. Each photo will have details of what it depicts. Great models deserve a great journey and this ones been a blast so far. I hope you enjoy the ride. Feel free to PM me if you have questions about any of the mods.
