What if the jets never quite made it - could the Me-262 have been put into service with piston engines?

Another variation on the theme - what if the gas turbines still weren't quite there and the Luftwaffe went the route the Italians and Russians (and probably a few others as well) tried, that of thermojets:

Some I did a while ago: 

Turboprop version of the Me P.1099 (which was itself a derivative of the Me-262 - it utilised the wings and tail of the Me 262).  The plan is that this is would be a carrier based bomber, somewhat similar to the North American AJ Savage:



That one has occurred to me, too; including an AEW version with the rotary radar dome of the AR-234P on the upper fuselage.
