These colorful aircraft served as a small unit in Adolf Galland's JV 44. Their sole function was to protect the Me 262s during takeoff and landing. The red and white stripes were chosen to help German flak gunners identify them.

The model was finished with Model Master Paints and EagleCals #23-32 decals.
