The Me 262 was one of the world's first effective jet aircraft. Its airspeed far exceeded that of its piston-powered contemporaries, allowing it to attack and withdraw with relative impunity. When flown by experienced pilots, these aircraft were very effective, frequently achieving four-to-one kill to loss ratios. But it was too late to accomplish much against the gargantuan bomber flights pouring out of England. This kit features an access panel with four 30mm guns, a detailed engine, two bombs and standing pilot and ground crew figures.
