1/72 Revell

The Horten Ho IX (often called Ho 229, or Gotha Go 229 due to the identity of the chosen manufacturer of the aircraft) was a late-World War II prototype flying wing fighter/bomber, designed by Reimar and Walter Horten and built by Gothaer Waggonfabrik. It was the first pure flying wing powered by a turbojet, and was the first aircraft designed to incorporate what became known as stealth technology. It was a personal favorite of German Luftwaffe chief Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring, and was the only aircraft to come close to meeting his "1000, 1000, 1000" performance requirements. Its speed was estimated at 1,024 km/h (636 mph) and its ceiling 15,000 meters (49,213 ft).

The Flying Wing from the "Raiders" was completely fictional vehicle, built from scratch. I don't think anyone produces the model of it, but it could have been inspired by the Ho-229 or similar projects.

Just to clear things up a bit - it shouldn't be stealth. The airfoil is indeed similar to B-2s, but it lacks any radiation-absorbing elements. Also there turbines were "visible" to radar, and they would generate much of RCS.

And a model itself is quite nice, just use a bit of clear matt for better effect. :)

od pewnego czasu stosuję lakiery humbrola i jestem zadowolony.

No tak, przecież po polsku też można...

Ja się do lakierów nigdy w pełni nie przekonałem - zawsze matowy jest trochę bardziej połyskliwy od nałożonej farby, ale to może dlatego, że używam Testorsa.

to jest lakier olejny czy akrylowy. Bo jak ten drugi to wódką trzeba rozcieńczać i wtedy jest idealnie matowy. Wiem bo to samo jest z lakierami pactry.

Akryl Pactry/Model Mastera (nie pamiętam który, ale to ten sam Testors :)). Jako, że jestem niepijący to ze znalezieniem wódki będzie problem, ale się coś kupi niebawem. Po sesji egzaminacyjnej? :) Bynajmniej nie żeby opić, bo obawiam się, że nie będzie czego - ale nie będę męczył Cię swoimi problemami.

Dzięki wielkie za radę!

Ta czerwona 13 powinna aż tak kontrastować?
Poza tym modelik zacny! Kokpit i wnętrze dobre.

Szczerze to nie wiem. Zrobiłem go prosto z pudełka więc nie zastanawiałem się nad tą 13 specjalnie czy ją przyciemnić czy zmienić numer.

Dobra robota! Malowanie wyszło dobrze, kalki trochę świecą, ale nie psują ogólnego wyglądu.

No i samo latadło ciekawe, nie widuje się takich za często :D A że mógł być stealth... Hm, no podobieństwo do późniejszego o parę dekad B2 jest dość wyraźne... Więc pewnie słabe radary w czasach IIWŚ go "nie brały" :D
