1/48th Dragon Ho-229B Nachtjager
December 27, 2012 in Aviation
I enjoy building WWII Luftwaffe night fighters. When I saw this kit I jumped at it. I loved the idea of the flying wing night fighter with Hs298 air-to-air missles.
This was my second Dragon kit and it followed the same build pattern that I had experienced with the previous kit. The sub assemblies fit nice, but when you try to bring the sub assemblies together their fit was sub par. Still I had fun with the kit, it was built right out of the box, but the markings are all mine. I got the idea for the paint scheme from an online picture, but I thought it needed more color so I used my number decals from my spares. I figure no harm no foul since this plane did not make it past the drawing board.
