I just found this web-site and I thought it had some really neat pictures of the Me 262.

Thank you, that is a great site. The pictures of the swallow are very hard to come by. It is really interesting that a company in TX is making the Swallow again. Isn't that neat? One of the pics below is one of the ones they made.

Yes...that does look like a sleek little plane!

Nice picture. What made them decide to make this plane again? Is it a hobby for them or is there a renewed interest in this little fighter?

I just wondered...? Very Happy

I think that it is from renewed interest. I've read that it is an extremely advanced plane in spite of the age of the design. If Hitler hadn't made it a bomber and let them use it as a fighter like it was designed for, the war might have gone differently. He allowed its use as a fighter way late in the war, and by that time it was too late for it to make a difference.

The bomber models had a glazed nose in which a bomb aimer laid down in.
