Dawn of the Jet Age: 15mm Me262 & Me163

To round out my current work on some Late Late War German Tankhunters, here are the Tamiya Me163 and Me262 assembled and painted. I really enjoyed assembling and painting these models and hope that Tamiya offers further aircraft kits in this scale for WW2 (I'd especially like to see a US P-38 Lightning or P-61 Black Widow). I've included a comparison pic with AIM's Early War Stuka.

Technically the ME-163 is a rocket plane, not a jet plane but that is one good looking model.

Beautiful airbrush work on the camo! These are perfect for putting together a 1945 airfield board. Templehof anyone?

I'd never heard of this range by Tamiya, I hope they expand it to include some prop aircraft in the future.
