    what do you mean with german made me 262?
    only germany made them, but then we can go back to 1994 or 95 when a project to made 5 copies from an original me 262, was started in the TAF in fort worth, tx

    Some were also made by the Czheck Air Force from spare parts, they were called Avia-199 or something like that

    Get the Classic series of 4 books by Eddie Creek and J Richard Smith on the 262. Just about everything you would want to know.

    The S.199 was their version of the Bf109, The S.92 was the Me262.

    back to books........throw the William Green book in the garbage and pick up the multi-volume history on the 262 through Classic Publications.

    JG 7 in both German and English by Manfred Boehme

    Me 262 by Monogram publications, although OOP it is worth having for some unique information and pics.

    Me 262 combat diary, still one of the best with some errors but these are negligible.

    Jet Planes of the Third Reich very much OOP, but still a giant of a work and a classic. You'll pay a price of 150.00 US minimum if you can find a copy but it should be on every shelf interested in jet refinements and operations. The multi-volumes by Classic Pubs evolved from this tremendous volume done years ago....
