1/48 Heinkel He-162A Volksjaeger
In its brief operational role, the small fighter made a lasting impression thanks to its revolutionary design.
Of the four models presented here, one is Tamiya's and the rest are Dragon kits. Both are very good kits. Yet, I had to replace Tamiya's tail unit with a spare Dragon unit because Tamiya's horizontal stabilizer dimensions are wrong. While the engineering of Tamiya's kit is better the model is slightly heavier built than Dragon's probably to support the engine parts. Proportionally, the outlines of the aircraft seem to me slender like those of the Dragon kit.
