    This is one of the models I have enjoyed the most, the level of detail, the instructions, the assembly of the pieces and the great general quality.

    The Horten Ho 229 of Zoukei Mura is an incredible model full of possibilities.
    In these images you can see part of the fuselage assembled with the turbines and landing gear

    Beautiful work, sir. Those Z-M models are quality kits indeed. I’ve done their 32nd Skyraider (have another one in the ‘stash’) and am currently working on their 48th Phantom (got another one of those as well). The plastic is on the soft side, but for me, that’s a plus when dealing with those little stubs after removing the parts from the sprues. Your Horton looks mighty fine.

    Very nice start Carmelo

    Thanks for your comments, you’re right. ZM is the best I’ve ever built.

    I add the part of the wing assembly to see how it fits and start to prepare the fuselage, after seeing several Hortems over the net I decided to leave one of the wings uncovered and present it in wood.
    I’m going to try the decals of Uschi van der Rosten.
    I think Hortem looks very good on the wood finish.

    I hope that this is not a stupid question, but is this the 48 or the 32 scale model from ZM?

    The details in this plane are amazing………………………… Wow !!!

  • Carmelo Rodrigo said 10 months ago:

    Sorry the scale is 1:32
    My vision does not give me more.

    Well finally mounted wings, finished wood, the wood grain decals of Uschi Van Ver Rosten were very brittle and gave enough problems.

    The rest was perfect a great lace and virtually no need for any kind of putty.

    Now I just need to make some good photos …..
