WOW262 Messerschmitt Me262 Wellenmuster Pattern Camouflage
5 in stock
The Messerschmitt Me 262, nicknamed Schwalbe ( “Swallow”) in fighter versions, or Sturmvogel (“Storm Bird”) in fighter-bomber versions, was the world’s first operational jet-powered fighter aircraft. Design work started before World War II began, but problems with engines, metallurgy and top-level interference kept the aircraft from operational status with the Luftwaffe until mid-1944. The Me 262 was faster and more heavily armed than any other late war Allied fighter, including the British jet-powered Gloster Meteor. One of the most advanced aviation designs in operational use during World War II, the Me 262’s roles included light bomber, reconnaissance and experimental night fighter versions.
Our latest variant is decked out in a late war wave pattern camouflage and is based on an aircraft of 5./ KG 51 at Schwabish Hall in 1945.
