    I want to buy my first preprinted kit. I love the ME 262.

    In a lot of stores I'm just found the GPM kit:


    Is the kit good? Any advice?

    That is the intention.


    First., Thanks for answers my posts.

    Second, Well I'm ordering from Argentina so I'm trying to order a couple of models at least. The charges for shipping are high.

    Now, I'm ordering the ki-46 and the ME-262 at least.

    by the way, Your Me-329 looks very tempting. Maybe the next buy.

    Thanks again

    I have built this kit and was pleased with it. Nice coloring and great fit. It is not very detailed, especially the interior, but it still makes a good-looking model. The only fault I remember was the lack of good diagram instructions. They were very sparse and it was difficult to figure out some of the parts.

    Re the Me 329: I bought the kit and it's a truly amazing piece of work--the engines alone were worth the price of the kit. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a real eye catching model.

    Ok, I'm just bought it.

    I'm have to wait now.

    Thanks all for the advice.

    I build the version of the year 2001.
    Nice colors and good fit, but not perfect.
    The worst diagrams that I have seen, the nose formers are a litle to big and the formers from the cocpit to the tail are a litle small.
    But what can I say more. I love the Me 262 and the GPM model is a good model with out to much details.
    Also you will have to scrachtbuild the wheels because the kit only bring templates for them.
    For nose weight i used one big nut (for screw) and that was enough.

    The GPM 262 looks nice. I still got one of those charming WHV Me 262´s in 1/50. Love those subtle colours.
    Couldn´t the problem of not enough weight in the nose section be solved by giving the front landing gear wheel a core of steel washers or small coins?
