Ho 229 Concept Note Book

Even if you are not going to build the model, the 168 page Concept Note Book for only $28 is a good resouce and it comes with a drawings poster!  Employees came to the US to observe the Horten 229 in order to create the models and some of their pictures are included.

The $68 two seat conversion kit follows the drawing perfectly.  The book is now out of print.

David Myhra's recommendations from the Monogram book

Used with permission from the author, David Myhra, from the Monogram "Close-Up 12 - Horten 229"

The book is now out of print.  Our single seat version - see below - will have the smaller black and white crosses (top and bottom) in an homage to V1 and V2 which had them as well as the replica in San Diego.  As to painting a como pattern on upper surfaces as we are doing, the replica in San Diego is just green on top (like illustration in David’s book he refers to) but David does not say why he believes a production version (like we are building with the cannons) would be one color “unlike most fighters of the period.”
