    DescriptionThis book provides a complete guide to modelling the Messerschmitt Me 262, the greatest jet fighter of World War II. Developed from a 1938 design, the Me 262 'Schwalbe' (Swallow) was the world's first operational turbojet aircraft. First flown as a pure jet in 1942, it proved much faster than conventional aircraft. Development problems, Allied bombings and cautious Luftwaffe leadership created delays that halted its production until late 1943. The Me 262 became the first jet aircraft used in combat when it attacked a British photo-reconnaissance Mosquito in July 1944 over Munich. A thorough list of every available kit and aftermarket product is included.
