Me 262 A1!
By Baron619 October 1, 2013
Like the name of the kit and this review implies, its A1 in my book...well as far as Revell goes. Don't get me wrong, I like Revell just fine. Their kits are a decent value for the money, but let's face it, if you've ever built a Revell plane you know how the fitment on their kits is. This kit went together in just a few days with very little problems. The instructions are clear and basically you get a book. There are a couple pages of part descriptions, one for paint colors, and the assembly instructions take up the remaining pages. There are optional instructions for different weapon loads, as well as gear up or gear down configurations. This is where this kit started going bad...if you have ever read one of my reviews you know that the option for gear up (which I prefer) usually earns a star, however, with this kit it caused it to lose one. If model companies wish to include options like this they can't halfway do it. That's what they've done in a BIG way here. First the nose gear door is made up of just two doors one small rectangle fore and a longer one aft. Simple enough right? Well when u glue the doors together guess what...a huge gap! Nowhere near the right size to fill the gear bay. I'm not above using a little filler but this thing isn't a little crack its a gaping hole! Next, yes there's more. You would think that if there was a gear up option that there would be included with the kit optional pieces to help make the fitment as nice as possible...well the aft gear doors should be one piece to fit in the hole made for the two main gear. Not on this kit. In total there are 5 pieces you have to meticulously glue together and after all that trouble the fit is still awful at best. The last issue I found was the fact that the plane or the figures included or both are not 1/48 scale. I have various 1/48 pilot figures I save from other kits and each one I tried barely fit inside the cockpit. And the giant figures they include could never fit inside even if they were in the sitting position. But everything else on this kit fits like a glove so it still ranks pretty high...for a Revell kit.

A Brave new world
By mcgoldrickkelly February 14, 2014
This was my first NON-Propeller plane. My first JET! It is a difficult model for beginners like myself (I'm probably an intermediate by this point). I am a user of Testors Enamel paint. As such, there are NO colors that match the unique coloring of the ME 262's frame. THUS, i mixed green, white and gray. Shook it around, and found a BEAUTIFUL color for parts of the undercarriage, the tail fins and the lower half of the fuselage. Then I added a Flat green to the top of the fuselage. The alternative was to make a sky-blue, white, and gray mix for the aforementioned parts and a dark gray or even black color for the parts that i painted flat green. Anyway, Revell's 262 could only be better in ONE WAY: The Nose!!!! Because there is no propeller, the nose is THREE PARTS! Unles u shave or sand doen the parts, they simply will not fit! So, before you glue, maybe even before you paint, sand or shae those parts down. (Same goes for the back wings, i spent alot of time sading them down, and im still not sure if i did TOO much or NOT enough!)

Typical Revell
By BlucherFamily July 6, 2015
An enjoyable build that looks great when completed. What can I say more, than typical Revel quality and attention to detail. Love this kit.

not bad for the price; so many seams to fill, though.
By jctoymaker June 16, 2015
It's like most Revell kits; great price, great instructions, a parts description list (something that other makers could use), and good detail in the usual small part areas. ON the other hand, I have come to think that Revell has a deal with Testor's to maker the builder buy their filler putty (which hasn't changed in 60 years and could be a lot better and easier to work with). it's not that you need tons of filler, but you need to use it in many areas of such a seam heavy kit. but it is manageable for a reasonably experienced hobbyist. Revells prices keep me building their kits (and loyalty); I can afford about two kits a month if one is a lot less expensive than others. I'm running out of cheapos to build, though. Such is life, and such are kits.
