COooool. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

What I find really impressive besides the price is the 39 mph stall speed with flaps and gear. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

The MK25 is pretty sharp looking eh?

That Full-scale MkI at the bottom of the page takes the cake...SCHWEET!

Given the choice though, I'd still take the pony.

That would be the day I would start flying around in something I built in my garage. I get nervous every time I do a brake job I couldn't handle leaving the ground in something I put together like that.

I know some people like these things - but compare them to the real thing just for a minute.

Gee I think they are a crime against nature.

look at this site

http://www.stormbirds.com/project/

They are building modern replicas of me262's. The most interesting stuff is the technical stuff, and the comparison between the Yumo007 engine and the J-85 ( that they are using on the replicas ). Looking on the big differences between the two engines, really shows what great leaps the technology has done in so many years ( and considering the fact that neither J-85 is a modern engine )

I'm with you Boosher http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif that 262 must be a kick in the pants http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif but the papa 51 out performs the original so thats got to be a pretty good ride too http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif OH!...I just cant deside, http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif guess I'll have to buy them both http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif

As it says in the site the new 262 will be a lot more reliable than the original ... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif but the price tag is a bit forbidding :P 2.000.000$ LoL. In comparison, how much is the cost of a F-16 jet? Around 10.000.000$ ? ( and its not for sale to civilians :P ) i dont know for sure.
