The Messerschmitt Me 262A, nicknamed Sturmvogel, was the world’s first operational jet-powered fighter aircraft of German construction from WWII. Despite its advanced technologies, the Sturmvogel had a negligible impact on the course of the war as a result of its late introduction into operational service.
This new model from Cobi consists of movable elements such as parts of the wings and retractable wheels. The cockpit can be also opened in order to put the pilot figure at the controls. The set includes 2 bombs that can be attached to the undercarriage of the Sturmvogel. In addition, it has a stand with the name of the model printed on it.
A group of passionate individuals got together to achieve this dream of creating Classic Flyers to protect the rich and precious history of New Zealand aviation.
