Get closer to the mystery of the Horten brothers' flying wing fighter-bomber!

The Horten brothers, who had been interested in gliders and flying wing from an early age, continued to design flying wing under Dr. Lippisch, the designer of Me 163. The prototype was repeated several times and was officially adopted as the "Ho 229". The Ho 229, which was expected to have high performance by the German Air Force, was planned for various variants such as the double-seat type, but they came to an end without being put into actual battle.

The flying wing with this unique shape did not have a vertical stabilizer that reflects radar waves structurally, and carbon powder was used for painting, so it was considered to be highly stealth.

Surrounded by a uniquely shaped canopy and two jet engines, the cockpit is Internal Frame and a metal plate, and the front edge of the seat is equipped with a footrest for ejection.

There is no general cockpit floor, and you can see the huge front wheels and the thick pedestals that support them directly underneath.

The Junkers "Jumo 004" engine is the world's first axial-flow turbojet engine that has been put into practical use and put into service.

The air flowing in from the front intake is compressed through an eight-stage compression turbine in which moving blades and stationary blades are alternately arranged, and is mixed with fuel and burned in the rear combustion chamber.

By building it from scratch, you will understand the Horten. While installing the Jumo 004 engine, building the cockpit and mounting the cannons onto it, you can imagine the Horten flying in the sky.

You can feel the joy of the pilot who returns his base in triumph.

Now, Horten is here as the best scale model kit!
