Messerschmitt Me 262A-1a "Schwalbe"

Superb detailed model of a revolutionary aircraft. The Wikipedia entry complements the model in the same way that Airfix, Frog and Revell's specification sheets did.


Model looks great on the shelf next to the other WWII models.

Arrived on time. Model was as advertised. A good value and attractive item.
No blemishes found, the cockpit could use more detail.
Fantastic diecast Me262
This model has a good weight and size. Delivery was very quick and arrived in pristine condition. Highly recommend.
