Dear Greg, and rest of the guys,
Thank you for the wellcoming and i will be glad to be able to help in any way i can!!
As far as i was able to find, the Me-262A-1b was just tested on a few trials on the ground with the 003 engines on! i was not able to find more info! I did the image based on the data given to me by Hobby boss guys! In a way, the Me-262A-1b box art is a ''what if'' status! According to another info blog, that particular airplane did also a few short flights! After all finding info about Luftwaffe in late 1945 is a massive pazzle!
Also thanks Greg for the kind words about my art! I have done 25 paintings for Trumpeter-Hobby Boss up to now, and included are the box art for the 48th scale Trumpeter Spitefull, Seafang, Mig-23M flogger b,
Sukchoi-25A and UB, F-117A nighthawk in 32nd scale, plus all the Messerchmitt262's, F-14's,F4U-4 Corsairs from Hobby Boss in 48th scale!
Please have a look at www.Kostaskavvathias.com for more!!
Thanks again for the wellcoming, and happy to be part of your nice effort in the Magic world of Modelling!!!
Best wishes!!

I'll second Greg, that's some gorgeous work.  I doubt I'll be able to afford it, but do you take private commissions and, if so, what are your rates?

Dear Doom, TSRjoe, and elmayerle,
Thank you also for the kind words about my art!! I really apreciate that guys!
Ever since i was a child, the magic box art done by the masters Roy Huxley and Roy cross made me really to start doing modelling aircraft kits(mainly)! I propably would have never enter this magic world without those magic paintings on the kit! i feel really dissapointed to see Airfix using those computer images nowadays as their box top! They are good, no doubt, but they do not capsure the magic feelling felt back in those early days of modelling times!
Fortunatelly, the Japanese and Chinese model companies still use painted box art on their kits, and so, i was lucky enough to be able to collaborate with them!!
Dear Elmayerle, there is no problem to undertake a commision at all, and please do not worry about the payment! i usually charge 600 euros for a 60x80 cm images! Depending of course what you like to depict on the painting! The trouble is, i am very busy these days with those Chinese model companies! Thank you for the proposal anyway!
And to give you some news, well....suppose to be secret, i just finished the box art for the announced P-61B black Widow in 32nd scale! i do not know the exact date of release though!
Have a good modelling, and not only, day!!                                                Regards, kostas kavvathias

Kostas, I really like your artwork. I hope yo don't mind a little "alteration" in the sake of "What Iffery".
