After many years the publication about this aeroplane appears also for English speaking readers - modellers. Basic story is improved in many aspects, data etc. and it is now even more accurate. This volume brings you the anatomy of this last-ditch, “ersatz” jet fighter aeroplane from outside and inside.
Compare this work of love and patience with some “expert” and expensive publications who repeated some glaring mistakes accumulated in the press over some 20 years. They show fancy colour drawings of German cockpits with US equipment, side consoles looking oh so strange (!), no radios, incorrect instrument panels and several versions of colour schemes for the same aeroplane. We said “enough” to that repetition of old mistakes and blunders and we spent uncounted hours in archive and museums to produce a reliable “source” publication.
We took dimensions of real aeroplane and some parts – so that we can now offer drawings close to the real thing. Compare to the previous guesstimate drawings and you will probably be surprised what differences you will find.
The book also delves into the service of the He 162s used for tests after the WWII in different countries, bringing relevant photos; there are many colour schemes, including personal aircraft of famous pilots of the JG 1.
An important part is the so called ”walk around” showing details to enable superdetailing a model. About 10 pages, printed mostly in colour, contains a collections of details - including cockpit, undercarriage and its wheel wells, details of control surfaces AND also the gun bay with MG 151/20 cannon (this detail was not yet printed).
If you are Luftwaffe fan, you simply must have it.
