Product description

Brandnew injection molded kit for a Me262 paper plane. But a good looking one

In April 1941, Adolf_Busemann proposed that a 35° swept wing be fitted to the Me 262. Although this was not implemented, it did lead to the development of the Hochgeschwindigkeit project to improve the Me 262's speed. In 1944, the Me 262 V9 prototype was modified with a low profile canopy, known as the Rennkabine ("racing cabin"), as the Hochgeschwindigkeit I, or Me 262 HG I

The more radical Hochgeschwindigkeit II, Me 262 HG II proposal was to feature a new 35° swept wing with engines moved closer to the fuselage and a V tail though this was changed back to a conventional tail after wind tunnel tests showed that the V-tail was unstable.

The Hochgeschwindigkeit III (Me 262 HG III) was to have a 45° swept wing and Heinkel HeS 011 engines in the wing roots. Neither of these projects were built.
