This is a plastic model kit, which comes unassembled and unpainted. So glue, model paints and other basic modelling tools are additionally required.
Every section has been downscaled but reproduced in its smallest details just like in 1/32 scale! Of course, as for the 1/32 scale the internal structure (frame structure, Jumo 004 engines etc.) is reproduced in fine details and can be admired after assembly thanks to the external clear parts! And as a bonus, the engine suspension stand is also included in the box!! By displaying it after completion, think about the maintenance scenery of that time and feel like you've entered a new world of scale models!
The internal structure of Jumo 004 has been revealed!! The Junkers Jumo 004 was the world's first axial turbo jet engine used in training and combat. Just like in 1/32 scale, visible front and rear intake cones, nozzle needles, and engine pipes are thoroughly reproduces in this 1/48 kit!
What are the Flying Wing's "deceleration devices"? Buckets of Flying Wing, which is not equipped with tail unit, are used mainly for attitude control. Devices for deceleration like airbrakes and drag chutes are mounted on the under surface of the rear fuselage. Also, drag rudders on upper and under surface of the main wings undertake the role of rudders that are usually on aircraft equipped with tail unit. When unfolded, the drag rudders create air resistance and slow down the wing. Only with SWS, you can gain a much better understanding of the Flying Wing's mechanism while building the kit!
Look inside the cockpit, the pilot's work place!! The pilot's seat is an ejection seat made of pipe frame and metal plate, and footholds for ejection have been made on the front edge of the seat. Based on the documentation and the investigations into the real aircraft, The maker has recreated as much as possible every detail of flight instruments and operation systems around the cockpit. Everything is packed into a very small space with just enough space for only one person to sit down! It looks like a real fighter! You can recreate a unique cockpit of Horten by yourself!

This kit is a blockbuster! I haven’t assembled this kit yet, but I’m absolutely blown away by the kit’s contents. The box is chock-full of beautifully molded plastic parts. The complete airframe is captured and extensively detailed. The aircraft’s tubular steel frame is very well represented, featuring gussets and other joint connection details. A thoroughly detailed cockpit with a nice seat, instrument panel, flight controls, etc. The twin jet engines are complete with minute surface details, fuel lines and other features. The unusual tricycle landing gear is very well done, including the distinctive large nose wheel with its mudguard. For me, the crowning touch is the fact that all of the aircraft’s outer “skin” is furnished in clear styrene, allowing the fantastic airframe detail to show beneath! Although the outer panels are transparent, they feature fine surface detailing. The instruction book is excellent, with logical assembly steps accompanied by outstanding drawings, painting details and other information throughout. I’ve been a modeler for well over 50 years and I’ve seldom seen such a phenomenal kit of any subject. I wouldn’t recommend it for beginners, but shouldn’t be a problem with the guiding hand of a seasoned kit builder on hand to help. Modelers of moderate to advanced skills will love it. It’s a fantastic bargain and would remain so, even at many times its selling price. A real gem!
