This semi-scale stunt model may be built as the "262A" bubble canopy version or as the 262B turtle deck version as shown on plans. So, if you like semi-scale type stunter with a realistic tighter look, why not build one?
First of the turbojet powered aircraft to achieve operational status, the "ME.262A" (single seat fighter) entered combat with the German Luftwaffe in August of 1944. Converted from its fighter configuration to that of a bomber as a result of Hitler's direct orders, the "262A" carried a bomb load of 2,200 lbs. Powered by two 1,960 lb. thrust Jumbo 004B turbojets, the "262A" waas capable of approximately 522 mph, which was the fastest fighter in World War lI.
The "ME 262B" all-weather fighter and two-seat trainer was adapted to carry the new Fug 218 radar, as was as additional radio and communications equipment. Perfection of the airborne radar system proved highly successful, despite its vulnerability to window-jamming counter measures by the Allied Air Forces.
