Me-262 A-1a (Twin 90mm) by Airworld
Started to look at the various components last week ...
This thread in German
It's a big all fg-airex-sandwich carbon composite airframe for twin 90mm fans, made by Airworld Germany;
the rest of the components, well you can guess where most of them (esc, batts) will come from ...
Edit : Me-262 flyby added March 2012 :

Gorgeous ME262! detachable nacelles and scale gear! NICE!
Pricey boat motors though!
Figured you'd steer clear of those types..... and not because of the price!
Have you settled on 6S,9S or 12S?
Maybe I'm wrong but 6S seems low to me for the size of that jet.

Estimate for AUW?
I maidened my new little F9F sunday and talked w/ Hung, He read something on rcg about the 262 weighing 20-25lbs but i think its closer to 13lbs. Even the turbine version lists at 15.5 maybe it was a different brand he saw...

It is quite light ! That's why I decided to go ahead and get one
You might be referring to another similar sized model out there, I think it was us-made and it's a real lead sled at 30+ lbs.
The Airworld Me-262 is in a completely different class, no comparison imo. A high performance all-composite airframe.
wingspan 200 cm = 80 ''
length 175 cm = 70''
Original Me-262 ws = 12.5m, length = 10.58m
Thus the scale is approximately 6.2:1
The empty airframe weights are as follows:
fuse 32.1 oz
wing 47.6 oz
nacelle (each) 9.1 oz
two elevators 8.2 oz
empty airframe weight = 106.1 oz = 6.6 lbs = 3.01 kg
Very light, esp. the fuselage. The wing is one piece, and very strong (turbine grade).
Estimated weight rtf should be in the 14-15 lbs range

Bare aiframe as in the pic below, 106 oz
Gel-coated silver painted-in-the mold fiberglass (not polyester), with lots of carbon fiber reinforcements in the wing, fuselage, elevators and nacelles.
Specifically: fiberglass fuseleage and nacelles, fiberglass-airex-fiberglass sandwich (wing), and fiberglass-balsa-fiberglass sandwich (elevators).

She sure is big ! The 2m wing just barely fits lenghtwise in my suv
Uncle Joe (Joe Balaban) should be awarded a major prize for flying this thing on nicds @ 20 lbs & 1800W total ...
I am collecting some scale documentation & possible paint schemes,
