Horten Ho 229 (1/72)
This is my Horten 229.
This project came about more out of a spontaneous desire than out of real passion.
My other interests are more related to the "ground" 😉 and that's why this is only my second finished airplane so far.
The construction of the Revell Horten (04312) was generally problem-free and the fit of the parts was okay.
Still, some sanding was necessary.
Additionally I used Eduard's PE detail set (72186), which was mainly used in the cockpit.
For the first time in a project I had big problems with the decals (you can clearly see them on the pictures).
Although I treated and processed these on clear coat and with decal products, they did not stick to the surface.
The decals from the kit also seemed very thick to me.
I also used old Hobby Boss decals from my spare box, which also worked better.
The base is selfmade using Ammo's concrete acrylic texture paste and pigments.
The ground crew is from an German Luftwaffe figure set by Zvezda.
