as the Highflight conversion is long, long gone (I've held off building mine for that reason). Should be a nice kit and fills a void for the Schwalbe fans.

First, because this is regarded as a really nice kit anyways, and second, because unless I missed it, there's not even a resin conversion to do a BMW-powered 262.

So sign me up for this one!!!

and it's long gone. Nice though...worth getting if you stumble into one. It's designed for the Trimaster/DML family of '262s.

Sure wish someone would offer the open slats in the kit.

Not picking, just genuinely curious as their 1/32 262 is one of the few major bright spots for them in terms of accuracy, and this was pantographed down from that.

I'm still gonna get one of these though, if only because I'm a BMW fan.

Operative word must be some since the vast majority of the reviews I've read were pretty glowing.

angle of rudder trailing edge
canopy too tall-bottom framing too heavy
engine nacelles too short or too deep

If it looks like a duck............

Really disappointed that Tamiya's didn't.
