    Hi all,

    I just came across a few flying models; (jet-powered?) Heinkels & ME262(s) on a Japanese site. It looks like he's also got a JU87 in the works. I have no idea if the Heinkels are fictional planes, or if they were prototypes, or what, but they look pretty cool. Enjoy!

    The Heinkels were real planes:

    He178 - First jet powered aircraft
    He280 - First jet fighter, never made it to production mostly due to political reasons - arguably was a better fighter than the Me262.
    He100 - Fighter derived from a Heinkel speed record breaking aircraft - only made as a pre-production batch - better fighter than the Me109.

    Regards,

    Charlie
