Generallieutenant Adolf Galland -- JV 44, Germany, 1945
Current Location: Private Collector


The Messerschmitt Me262 was the first jet powered fighter to enter World War II. This aircraft saw action in late 1944 and played a significant role as a bomber, a reconnaissance plane, as well as a fighter/interceptor. Due to its superior speed, the jet was nicknamed “Turbo” by German pilots.

Among these pilots was the renowned Adolf Galland, one of the German Air Forces highest ranking aces. With the permission of Reichsmarschall Hermann Goring, Galland was able to form his own Me262 equipped fighter squadron, which he called “Jagdverband JV44”. Proving the effectiveness of this lethal jet fighter, Galland was credited with 7 victories while flying the Me262’s. The amount of victories accumulated with this particular aircraft is unknown as the “White 3” was one of several jets that Galland flew during the last year of the war.

Tamiya’s Me262 model airplane kit was used to produce Adolf Galland’s “White 3”. Standard paint scheme is RLM 82/83 over RLM 76. After market parts include Ultracast’s 1/48 scale seat w/seatbelts to advance the cockpit. An excellent rendition of Adolf Galland’s Me262A-1a "White 3" jet aircraft.
