Considering your first foray into modeling Luftwaffe jets?
Make Messerschmitt Me 262 A-1a Schwalbe – sixth in MMP’s growing “Singles” series – your handy handbook on Nazi Germany’s revolutionary warplane.
Spanning just 24 pages, it conveniently provides 1:72- and 1:48-scale plans, period photos, detail shots, tech-manual illustrations, color cockpit views, and informative captions. Alone, the color main instrument panel artwork is worth the relatively modest cover price.
Color profile and plan views illustrate RLM 74/75/76-bedecked “White 1” of Erprobungskommando 262 in June 1944 – completing coverage.
Just add a page with, say, four or five more Schwalbe schemes – and it’d be the perfect Me 262 reference for beginners!
With thanks to MMP for the review copy.
