Our Me 262B-1a arrived Sept 5th via 2 flat bed trucks in many pieces, looking very much like a life sized model kit!!!  Each airframe sub component was cocooned in bubble wrap.  It took us about a week to reassemble the major structure.  I then did some paint work to correct some inaccuracies in the markings.  This plane can be viewed at the Delaware Valley Historical Aircraft Association.

The original tires show a build date of 1944!  Note the wood main gear door attached to the strut and the circular (cylindrical) cockpit tub bottom.
