Trumpy and Revell 262's

Whilst it wasn't the first military turbojet to fly, the Messerschmitt Me262 was the first to become fully operational. Faster and more heavily armed than its RAF counterpart, the Gloster Meteor, the 262 could well have seriously altered the balance of air power in the latter part of WW2 had it been available in greater numbers. Both the single-seat A and dual-seat B series can be built here, and kit enhancements and conversions are encouraged.
Runs from 10 August 2019 to 22 September 2019.

Two boxes arrived at the same time today. However, the mouldings are at least 30 years apart!

For a split second, I was wondering what Donald Trump and the 262 had in common. :P

These builds can be very enlightening. I kept referring to the F-Toys' version whilst updating my ancient Revell Hawker Tempest during the RAF Centenary GB. We have come a long way since the 70's.
