616 RAF Squadron Messerschmitt Me 262A

Recommended Posts

Formerly on 1/JG 7, yellow 17 was captured by 616 Squadron at Fassberg at wars end. It was ferried to the UK where it was designated Air Min 52 and brefily evaluated until being sold off to Canada. It was scrapped with 300 odd other surplus aircraft in Canada in 1947.

 

The kit is the very nice Tamiya 1/48 offering with Cutting Edge decals.
