Luftwaffe 1946


 A Matchbox airplane.

It reminds me of this 1946 Luftwaffe jet.

I am taking them apart and will have to strip off their paint.

It's a simple model and will be an easy job.

A small group of four airplanes is enough.

I've been anticipating seeing what your paint job on these will look like, since you first posted them a while back! It's definitely a cool little jet.

One of many projects. Right now I am remodelling my house and so things are a little slow on the model building front. Still, that photo is likely the scheme I am going for when I paint it.

That German jet was actually made in Argentina (post war) by Nazi aircraft engineers that fled to South America.
Saw a History Channel show on secret Luftwaffe planes (plus I have Green's book on Luftwaffe aircraft).

The Horten 229 is still (in parts) stuck deep in the Smithsonian to see that rebuilt
Carry on.

In some fields the Germans were far ahead and their scientists were spread all over the globe after the war.
