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.
