  • Bonus detailed engine

Orange Box has a new aircraft in the budget-beating line. The 1/48 scale aircraft kit is an Me262 variant that has a unique appearance. The Me262A-1/U4 was known as Pulkzerstorer ("formation or pack destroyer"), a bomber interceptor armed with a powerful 50mm cannon. This weapon was supposed to allow the interceptor to attack bomber aircraft and formations at long ranges so that it wouldn't be threatened by bombers' own armaments. This Rheinmetall-Borsig Mk.214 cannon fired shells that weighed 1.5kg, and the heavy 2400kg recoil was cushioned by a hydraulic damper. The gun occupied the entire front section of the aircraft's nose, and even then it still protruded from the nose. Because of this, the nose wheel had to be redesigned so that it rotated 90 degrees when retracted. A single 50mm round was estimated to be sufficient to down an Allied bomber, but this was never proven since the Me262A-1/U4 never entered combat. Two prototypes were constructed and flown from Lager-Lechfeld in mid-April 1945.

This formidable looking Messerschmitt jet is produced accurately in 1/48 scale. The form and shape of this prototypical aircraft is perfectly captured in plastic, as is the impressive Mk.214 cannon. The bonus parts in this Orange Box item are a detailed engine. The inclusion of these new engine elements allows an airfield maintenance scene to be created, with all the engine componentry on show. The kit also contains a brand new set of decals from Cartograf. Brimming with detail, this is the ultimate kit of Germany's ultimate bomber-killer!
