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.

Mike:
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 warehouse...love 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.
