This aircraft is to be completed as a one or two place conversion model.

The next two images provide fore and aft views of the Blue Nose airplane undergoing an extensive electrical system checkout.

Continuing the electrical system checkout.

The tinted primer markings on this aircraft are temporary, and not indicative of the planned delivery scheme.

Two project technicians at work on the last wing spar. In this view, the spar cap is being fitted and riveted into position.

A close up view of the cockpit instrument panel and pilot's compartment. The instrument panel shown in this recent test fitting is an original panel from a wartime Me 262.

New instrumentation is being manufactured to precisely duplicate the appearance of the original dial faces and instrument cases.
