Me 262 for sure, Do you have a clearer pic? The tones of colours seems to suggest it is a pic of a restored a/c rather then a wartime shot.

Something else:
It's a tabletop photo of a model. It is definetely not the photo of a real a/c.

Hello
Perhaps the picture added here can help you out. The picture is taken from this site: http://209.157.64.200/~samwolf/
The owner of the site might help you out, it as seen, the same thing.
regards

Seeing the photo of stril, I have to correct my self.
It is a real a/c, but it is a postwar "fantasy" on a nowerdays (american?) tamrac. I mean to say the camo is not authenic "vintage", more a nowerdays paintjob.

Hi,

It may be tempting not to post on this thread because it's 18 years old, but the Me 262 in this photo bore the production number W.Nr.501232 and is now on display at the National US Air Force Museum in Dayton, Ohio. More photos of the Me 262 on display at the National US Air Force Museum can be found at this link:
