Easy Model 1:72 - Me262 A-2a - 9K + FL KG 51



This is a pre-built and pre-painted 1:72 scale plastic aircraft from Easy model.

Being the first operational jet fighter in the world, the Messerschmitt Me262 was one of the most advanced aircraft of its time.

Development of this plane begain as early as 1938 and the first prototype made its maiden flight (still propelled by a piston engine) in April 1941. The first jet powered version flew in July 1942. Full scale production started in November 1943 but two major aspects, one political and one technical, stopped its fast introduction to front line fighter units. The political factor was that the plane should be used as a fast bomber instead of a fighter and it took until late 1944/early 1945 until it was officially allowed to be used as a fighter. The technical problem was the reliability and availability of the jet engines. They only had a lifetime of about ten flying hours and production never reached the output necessary.

The principal operational versions were the Me262A-1A Schwalbe (Swallow) interceptor and the Me262-2A Sturmvogel (Storm Bird). The Schwalbe was built in a number of sub-types with alternative armament installations.

Despite all the problems, over 1400 planes were actually built and put into service. Although the plane was not as manoeuvrable as its piston-driven counterparts its overall performance was superior to many other aircraft of its time. There are several aircraft displayed in museums around the world.
