Horten Ho 229 – Revell – 1:72

My very first attempt on wood graining..............(Uschi decals)

My day at the National Air and Space Museum

I delivered my model of the Horten Ho-229 to the Smithsonian yesterday. It was quite a thrill to tour the restoration shop and talk to the very talented people that work there. I got to see their He-219 Uhu, MArtin B-26 bomber "Flak Bait", Apo[...]

It’s Official!

It's official. I just heard from the National Air and Space Museum and they have formally accepted my Ho-229 into the museum. It will be on display at the Udvar-Hazy Center at Dulles Airport. I just have to get it to them in one piece. I am very[...]

The Ho-229 Display Stand

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, and engi[...]

The 1/32 Zoukei-Mura Ho-229: The End is Near.

Here's another installment in the Ho-229 saga. Got the wings done tonight! That was a big accomplishment. Little fiddly parts that had to be attached. Actually, I thought I was done. It just occurred to me that I haven't put in the nav lights, y[...]

More Z-M insanity.

So this Zoukei-Mura Ho 229 is taking on a life of its own. It's been consuming me, I can't stop thinking about it and It's driving me insane. Much more to go.

1/32 Zoukei-Mura Ho 229

Glacially slow progress on this beast. I wasn't sure how to portray the "beavertail" section so I made it a metal/wood combo because the molding is a bit ambiguous and I really couldn't fined any references. I attached the bottom "wood" panels. [...]
