  • HISTORY ASPECTS:
  • The Horten Ho 229, also known as the Gotha Go 229, was a World War II-era German jet-powered flying wing, which was the world's first pure flying wing powered by jet engines, received a production order and likely would have seen service had the war continued into 1946. It was designed by the brothers Walter and Reimar Horten and was one of the first jet-powered flying wings to be built. The aircraft was made mostly of wood and had a distinctive shape that contributed to its high speed and stealth capabilities.
  • The Ho 229 was intended to be used as a fighter-bomber and was equipped with two Jumo 004B-1 turbojet engines that allowed it to reach speeds of up to 600 mph. However, only a handful of prototypes were built and the aircraft never saw combat during the war. The Ho 229 was ultimately captured by the Allies and its technology was used to inform later aircraft designs.
  • Despite its limited use in actual combat, the Horten Ho 229 remains a fascinating piece of aviation history and has continued to capture the imaginations of aviation enthusiasts and model collectors alike.
  • This 1:72 scale model is an excellent addition to any collection, capturing the sleek and futuristic design of the original aircraft. With its unique shape and historical significance, the Ho 229 model is sure to impress and inspire anyone with an interest in aviation history.
