Horten Ho229 (Zoukei-Mura 1:48)


Adding to my limited Luftwaffe collection, here we have the somewhat unusual Horten Ho229 Flying Wing. This model could very well be considered a 'what-if' as the Ho229 never saw operational service before end of the war. Zoukei-Mura originally released this aircraft in their 1:32 series and have since scaled it down to 1:48, my preferred scale.

The model is built entirely out of the box, with the only addition being some belts made from lead foil. The model is finished with a combination of Gunze Mr Color lacquer, Tamiya Acrylic and Alclad II metalic paints.

Designed by ZM as one of those 'clear' or 'see thru' models I chose to instead finish my model in a more realistic finish. The complete build report with over 80 in progress photos can be found On The Bench
