Classic Kit: Airfix 1/72 Me-262 Kit # 110 (1960)

July 12, 2021 · in Aviation · · 13 · 1.8K

When issued their new Me-262 kit I decided to build the original kit for a fun comparison. The original early kit is built out of the box and I used the second set of markings from the new kit. As most early kits from that era the parts count is low.
