Airfix Releases First Build Photos of Upcoming New Tool Me 262 Model Kit

Airfix has released the first build images of its upcoming 1/72 Messerschmitt Me262A-1A Schwalbe model kit.

The kit is reportedly an entirely new tool offering that benefits from the latest manufacturing technologies available to the Airfix team, including the use of CAD software for maximum accuracy and detail. It will include 65 parts and marking options for two aircraft, including a 9./Kampfgeschwader[J] 54 machine and “Green 4” WNr.111002 flown by Geschwaderkommodore Theodor Weissenberger of Stab II./Jagdgeschwader 7.

The kit is currently slated for release in September. Click below to check out additional pics.
