As the first operational jet fighter in the world, initial Messerschmitt Me262s combat operations were flown by single seat aircraft, piloted by some of the Luftwaffe’s most experienced airmen. A two seat trainer version soon followed, which allowed new pilots to acquaint themselves with this advanced technology, without their conversion from piston power being their first solo jet flight.

Interesting choice of kit
As with the previous release of the Me262 this all goes together nicely. The canopy looks a little better than the original single seater. The radar antenna is quite delicate for the scale. A PE part would be better (and I hate PE!) But the plastic is ok. I do query the paint scheme though. The real red 12 surrendered to the British (the RAF decal option is a nice touch) and original photos exist. Airfix claim dark BROWN spots over lightblue. Really??? I'm doing Gray-violet spots over light gray. The brown and green wings are in disagreement with other sources too but the black and white photographs allow a lot of artistic licence. Next time release the 262 prototype with 50mm gun!
