Full Description

Phil Noel designed the 50”span model around two 70 mm fan units using  lightweight construction and featuring a single piece wing. Minimum of 3 channel radio required .

Phil Noel designed this 50 inch wingspan EDF model of the worlds’ first jet fighter around two Wemotec 480 70mm ducted fan units (not supplied). The interlocking parts ensure a strong, lightweight construction featuring a single-piece wing. A minimum of 3-channel radio is required.
The Messerschmitt Me 262 first flew in 1941, and entered operational service with the Luftwaffe as the worlds’ first jet fighter in 1944. Much faster than the allied piston engined fighters then in use and very heavily armed, the Me 262 had the potential to inflict heavy losses on the British and American bomber forces. However by that stage of the war the damage being inflicted on German industry by air attacks meant that the revolutionary Jumo 004 engines had to be made from inferior materials and were extremely unreliable. There were also fuel shortages, a lack of experienced pilots and constant allied attacks on the Me 262 airfields to contend with. In all, whilst an outstanding design, the Me 262 was too little too late for Nazi Germany and it had no real impact on the outcome of the war.
The model is of all-wood construction, but a moulded cockpit canopy is available. A laser-cut wood-pack is available that contains most of the shaped wood parts needed such as fuselage formers and wing ribs. This saves a great deal of time in the build and ensures accuracy, but you will need to buy additional sheet and strip wood to complete the model, as well as all the hardware needed.
