Product description

Take to the skies with the Airfix Messerschmitt Me262A-1A Model Kit.

The Messerschmitt Me 262 was a quantum leap in aviation performance terms, and stands as one of the most significant aircraft in the history of flight. Had the Luftwaffe been able to deploy large numbers of these impressive fighters, they would have taken a heavy toll of Allied aircraft.

Allied pilots first began reporting the appearance of a strange new aircraft in the skies above Germany during the middle of 1944, much to the consternation of Allied military planners. The aircraft was reported to be capable of tremendous speed, far in excess of even the latest Allied fighters, yet did not appear to have a propeller – as these early contacts ended with the strange aircraft diving away at high speed, missions were launched specifically to investigate these reports, with reconnaissance aircraft searching for unusual activity at Luftwaffe airfields deep into Germany.

They would not have to wait long for confirmation, as the first combat missions of the new Messerschmitt Me 262 jet fighter were mounted in August 1944 and clearly displayed the technological superiority of this astonishing aircraft.

This kit will be the perfect addition to any model-maker's collection.

Airfix Messerschmitt Me262A-1A Model Kit 1:72 is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great kit. Was glad to see an Me262 in hobbycraft as it’s a plane I have not built before and is one of the less popular models considering it was the first jet fighter to fly in ww2. Pieces came off sprue easily and required little filing. Kit went together real well although I have been making models for years. Paint job was more difficult as colours blend together rather than an easier “smooth” edge camouflage scheme. Most German fighters do this and spraying rather than brushing reccommended here. A great kit and fitted into my collection nice. Good price too.
