Cross-kitting 1/72 Promodeler & MPM Me 262

My intention is to graft the nose of the MPM Me 262 A-1a/U4 [50mm gun]
onto a Promodeler 262, and also to use the MPM PE where feasible. Apart
from the gun itself, I can see that the nosewheel configuration is
different. Any other details I need to watch out for? And are these two
kits compatible in cross-section?

I would use the entire forward fuselage,if it fits.Otherwise the pro modeler is light years better...

I don't know for sure but it probably can be done. I know someone who once cross kitted the MPM and Hasegawa 262's.

Czech Master Resin conversion set CMK 7007 includes the nose for the ia/U4 plus the radar antennae for the V056, purpose made for the Revell/Promodeller kit. I remember from previous study that the two kits have very different fuselage widths (the MPM one is, I think, identical in width to the Heller kit, where the MPM wings come from) , which will make a combination such as you suggest ... difficult...

Yeah, that was my take, and I have two Promodelers, after winning one in a raffle, so I figured it would be nice if they fit. The alternative is to excavate the Promodeler nose to take the different nose gear, bulges and the gun--it might be less work.
