In the last weeks of WW 2 German aircraft designers were very creative. So FockeWulf planned a Bomber, which should have a speed of 1000 km/h, 1000 km distance and a bombload of 1000 kg. The Entwurf B was an tailless delta wing. After some discussions and calculations the project B was given up instead C - a normal aircraft with tail.

The Planet model took my interest and I build it straight out of the box.

The cockpit was detailed with scratch built items. It was a pleasure to build. The only complaint was the single added Vacu-cockpit hood - be very careful.

The plane was airbrushed with Revell colours. I used the new snow 2018 as background.

The kit is very suitable for resin-beginners but its actual price not. I bought this kit at 2000 for 25 DM, now you have to pay 53 Euro (= 100 DM)!!!

Why the producer wants to get so much for it???
