1/48 Dragon Horten Ho-229A-1

--------------------

 

Here is an unusual bird that was in its final stages of development in 1945 and never reached the production lines. Following my visit at the Garber Facility, I was able to have a close look at the last remaining aircraft of the kind and pick the whim of the wooden structure and the camouflage pattern. Dragon's feature is the only of its kind for the 1/48 but certainly cannot be considered among their finest.
