In one hour time, the 2 basis are ready... I guess I will change my plan and have a single jet per junction, with external extra jets.

Your design bureau is leaning toward six engines ?
Like direction you are headed  :)
Those many P-38 drawings swayed me to grab a P-38 kit to bash with results of F-138.
Now,,, we have another case of a drawing leading to a kitbash  :)

I just love 1/144 scale....so much easier to work with and great for saving space!

Your 1/144 Me-262s are cute as buttons, Tophe! I'm very much looking forward to seeing how you blend them together!

The quick build is finished... (I think I will not PSR - it looks very fragile - nor paint, no need for a civilian bird)

Thanks for the bonus picture, Tophe. Now I can clearly make out the wheels on the tailplanes.

Very plausible! And another masterpiece!
