1/32 Zoukei Mura Ho-229 Opus 2 Number 1

Here's my almost nearly completed 1/32 Zoukei-Mura SWS Ho-229. This thing has taken me months to complete, but the work was worth it. I highly recommend this kit to more experienced modellers. I painted it with Tamiya, Mr Hobby, AK, [...]

After I finished my Z-M Ho-229, I realized there was something missing. I thought that the pieces that didn't go on the final model needed to be displayed separtely. So, I built this little stand to hold the top of the wing, body, nose, [...]

Ho-229 at the Air and Space Museum
