The Messerschmitt Me 262, arrow to the future.  Highly coveted by the Allies at the end of the war, the Me 262 was captured and evaluated in greater numbers than any other aircraft.  Watson’s Whizzers crossed over Germany in an effort to capture as many advanced aircraft as possible.  Some of the best examples were shipped to the US and Great Britain for evaluation purposes.   

This sheet contains markings for such four aircraft, three single-seaters and one two-seater.  The single seat aircraft are in American markings and the two-seater is in British markings.  Each aircraft has unique markings, whether it is the shape or color of the markings.  Actually two of the aircraft are the same aircraft at different times in the evaluation process.  The markings and the colors transformed the look of this aircraft. 

Typical of Cutting Edge decals, they are thin, opaque, and in register. 

If you are looking for something different then this sheet is for you. If you just like the Me-262 or the late war Luftwaffe aircraft, again, this is a sheet for you.  I highly recommend this sheet.
