Stormbird Selection

 

Designed to fit 1/48 kits from Dragon, Hasegawa, Hobby Boss, Monogram/Revell and Tamiya, this bumper collection of Me 262s provides examples of the three main single-seat versions, the German A-1 and A-2, plus the Czech-built S-92 Turbina.

Most are in German markings, but one is in US markings after being captured in 1945, while the post-war S-92 is in a smart Czech livery with nose lightning flash. Two camouflage schemes predominate, either RLM 74/75 over 76 or RLM 81/82 over 76, with varying degrees of mottling on the fuselage sides and vertical stabiliser. Notes are included regarding underwing weapons fit and whether the airframes featured full complements of stencils. The schemes are:
