Just acquired some further wing panels. These dural panels match the shape, dimensions, construction etc of the second/inner upper wing panel on the 262. They were apparently taken from an Me 262 tunnel manufacturing site and re-used as a garden shed for the last 70 years - they certainly been covered in tar and mastic and the large bolt holes, where they were joined, have been angle ground off. Mostly unfinished- I have drilled this one to match the completed 262 panel. Whilst searching for some details I came across the attached story with pictures of a building built in 1946 with similar Dural messerschmitt panels. http://www.aero-1946.de/messerschmitt_project.html
