The Messerschmitt Me 262, nicknamed Schwalbe (German: "Swallow") in fighter versions, or Sturmvogel (German: "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 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.
With 390 COBI building blocks, you can build a perfectly reproduced German jet aircraft from the Second World War! This beautiful historical aircraft has been designed with attention to detail. The blocks have been covered with high-quality prints that do not wear off even during intensive use. The painting of the aircraft refers to a machine with a very rich past, which is now in the Munich museum. At the controls of this Me 262 is a figurine, which is inspired by the figure of pilot Hans Guido Mutke. According to unconfirmed reports, this pilot may have crossed the sound barrier for the first time! The whole set is complemented by a brick stand and a plate with the name of the model.
This beautiful aircraft together with the display is the perfect gift idea for fans of aviation, history and technology. It will certainly satisfy even fastidious collectors and young people fascinated by bricks. Build history, block by brick together with COBI! This Me 262A is an excellent addition to your historical block collection.
