Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book provides a complete guide to modelling the Messerschmitt Me 262 - the greatest jet fighter of World War II. Developed from a 1938 design, the Me 262 'Schwalbe' (Swallow) was the world's first operational turbojet aircraft. First flown as a pure jet in 1942, it proved much faster than conventional aircraft. Develpment problems, Allied bombings and cautions Luftwaffe leadership created delays that halted its production until late 1943. The Me 262 became the first jet aircraft used in combat when it attacked a British photo-reconnaissance Mosquito in July 1944 over Munich. A thorough list of every available kit and aftermarket product is included.

Synopsis:

Developed from a 1938 design by Messerschmitt the Me 262 Schwalbe (Swallow) was the world's first operational turbojet aircraft. First seeing combat in July 1944, it proved to be particularly effective against the large Allied bomber formations that were operating over Germany late in the war and more than 1,400 were produced, though less than 300 saw combat. This book showcases six different builds of the Me 262 across the scales from 1/72 to 1/32, across a range of skill levels. It also includes a comprehensive list of all the available kits and aftermarket products.

Synopsis:

This book covers the range of kits and aftermarket products available to Me 262 modellers.
