04995 Messerschmitt Me262B-1 Nightfighter, 1:32

Die Messerschmitt Me 262 war das erste in Serie gebaute Strahlflugzeug der Welt und damals technisch seiner Zeit weit voraus. Die Version B-1 kennzeichnet die zur Nachtjagd umgebauten zweisitzigen Schulmaschinen. Diese waren dazu mit FuG 218 oder FuG 240 Abfangradar ausgestattet.

Basis: New Tool

Can it compete with one of Trumpeter best kits to date?

Yes, it will. The new kit is addressing some major and some minor flaws of the Trumpy 262 B. But before we get into speculating about the new kit we should wait until the first plastic is done.

It does look nice. I suppose price will have a bearing on the success against the Trumpy kit. Knowing Revell, it will probably cost little and be really great value 😜😜😜😜

It has been pointed out on LargeScale Planes that the kit on display is NOT the model that will be shipped , its simply a place holder , the actual kit is still being worked on

Same is true for the F-18E I believe , the model on display has been Id'd as the Trumpeter kit ..

With authorization by the company!

Sorry, I had difficulties loading up the pictures with my browser. So you will find some impressions from the first test shot in a lose sequence under the above link.

"Conny" Wiegmann is currently constructing the kit from the first test shot. Actual pictures from the second test shot will follow up.

Revell 04995 - 1/32

Rev_Me262B-1a_12.jpg

dies ist Revells brandneue Me 262B-1a die als 32er Neuheit auf den Markt kommt. Das Modell entsteht aus zwei ersten Testshots, die wie immer Einiges an Eigenarbeit erfordern. Trotzdem kann man bereits sagen, dass auch dieses 32er Modell von Revell wieder sehr gut wird

Wonder if we'll get any of the interesting and more esoteric variants in due course? :hmmm:

Hi Mike,

for the esoteric variants you will have to wait for the AM. These sets can be awaited as soon as the non esoteric variants hit the market. I hope this will not be too long after the NF.........

Meanwhile the second test shot has arrived and it looks rather promising. More on that later.

Hope there is a single seater in the future

Are we looking at the same thing? For a mainstream injection kit It looks absolutely superb to my eyes, so far.

Well....so far nothing stunning (wheels bay for instance). I was thinking about much more details.

What are you expecting for £37?

Well, although it's not a jet and not from Revell , the 1/72 T-90 tank from Zvezda is a litlle gem for less than 10 pounds.

By the way, I bought my 2 Me-262 from trumpeter (1/32) for less than 37 pounds each.

But if you like what you see from the Revell's kit, just buy it, built it and enjoy it. That's the aim of modelism.
