New Topic for A&A Models

VJ101C-X2 SUPERSONIC-CAPABLE VTOL FIGHTER. Brief history: In 1959 the design teams of the German companies Bolkow, Heinkel and Messerschmitt were formed into a consortium named Entwicklungsring Sud to develop a Mach 2 VTOL interceptor for the Federal German defence ministry. Heinkel left the consortium in 1964 and in the following year it was re-formed as a company with the title Entwicklungsring Sud GmbH, known more usually as EWR.Two prototypes of the EWR VJ 101C single-seat experimental VTOL aircraft were built. Generally similar, they were both of high-wing monoplane configuration, primarily of light alloy construction, had retractable tricycle landing gear and accommodated the pilot in a pressurised cockpit, seated on a Martin-Baker ejection seat. Powerplant comprised six RB.145 turbojets, developed jointly by Rolls-Royce and MAN-Turbomotoren, with two mounted vertically in the fuselage, immediately aft of the cockpit, and two in a swiveling pod at each wingtip.

​The VJ101C X-2 (second prototype) had ​afterburning engines in the wingtip pods, providing greater power for take-off and landing, and this made its first hovering flight on 12 June 1965. Four months later, on 22 October, the X-2 achieved the first full transitions from vertical to horizontal flight and vice versa, but development was discontinued soon after.

Something to look forward to.  Going to need some work to make it workable as a fighter but it's an aircraft I've long had an interest in.  In the one true scale as well.   ;D

I was thinking you could buy a couple of these, chop out the middle section (with the cockpit & wings) & the tail, join the remaining ends together & you'd have a pair of rather funky 1/48 scale engine pods for ... well ... something! ;) 8)

This will hurt Unicraft, which has this and the other La-200 versions available in 1/72.

Coming soon.

Hello fellows,
Check out the 3D renders of our next 1/72 model kit - Helwan HA-300.
This interesting supersonic interceptor was designed by Willy Messerschmitt for the purposes of Egypt Air Force during 1960s.
Our kit shall consist of 90 pieces including PE sheet and adhesive masks.
Due to its assembling simplicity it means to be a good "weekend" kit.

Are these models made of resin or styrene?

Previous kits were made with styrene but there is no information on this one.
