Xtradecal's 1/48 Me 262 A-1a / U3 / A-2a & S-92 decals
will be available online from Squadron.com



Xtradecal has released a new decal sheet to suit a range of 1/48 scale single-seater Messerschmitt Me 262 kits.



Eight options are included in this busy release.

Camouflage ranges across mid-war greys, late-war greens and browns arranged as splinter and mottled camouflage, as well as primer and bare metal. We are even given the options of a post-war Czech machine and an Me 262 captured by "Watson's Whizzers" as part of Operation Lusty.
