I have a 1/48 Lindberg Me-262 I picked up cheap. Which one of these conversion projects looks better?

It is an interesting idea, but given that it is a jet fighter, you have to wonder just who all those rear guns would be shooting at. An ME-210 or ME-410 is a different situation. Only the US did not have much in the way of enthusiasm for multi-seat fighters with aft facing guns. The Grumman FF-1 was one of the only US types ever produced and it led to the much more popular F2F and F3F series of single seaters.

Kind of like the Italian in Cannonball Run driving the Ferrari "What's behind me is not important" as he threw away the rearview mirror.
