Revell 1/72 Arado E.555
This is my Revell 1/72 Arado E.555 "Amerikabomber".
In response to the RLM's Amerikabomber project, Arado’s E.555 proposal included a series of long range jet bomber designs of various sizes, powerplants, crew and weapon load configurations. Those designs would be capable of striking the continental United States from Germany.
Arado had accumulated some experience from the development of its own small, shorter-range jet bomber, the Ar 234 Blitz, which first flew in June 1943.
Several different E.555 design configurations were proposed and considered;
Apparently, no aircraft were developed or constructed and the entire E.555 project was cancelled at the end of 1944.
Depicting the E.555 I design, this is yet another amazing Revell kit, reminiscent of the now older times (roughly one-two decades ago)...
This is another model of the “First and Last” build idea, suggested by Paul Barber @yellow10.
...in order to provide a "First and Last" story through those models. More soon!
The kit was a joy to build and utterly fun to paint!
