1/72 Horten Ho-229 from Revell. Wonderful model, everything fits like a dream. Paining like always: Tamiya, Mr Hobby and AK Real Colors. Weathering with Tamiya pigments and AMMO fluids.

You need strengthening, toughening
It takes a bit of dark to rekindle the fire burning in you
Ignite the fire within you

Very nice  :smiley: :smiley: :smiley:

I've got that kit too, are there any 'spare' parts left over which I could use in one of the PM Models kits ?

Very nice build! I love the Ho-229 and the Revell kit is almost perfect.

@kitnut617 - There are no options in the kit, other than the raised or lowered gear. Here's the instruction sheet
The original PM Ho-229 is an OK kit for its day. The two seater nightfighter is pretty basic and you can either use bits from the Revell kit to spruce it up, or cut out the center section and use it with the Revell kit.

Super duper finish & weathering.  :smiley:
I'd be pleased to do half as good.
