1/72 Me328 & Ho229 Mistel
« on: February 18, 2011, 08:22:55 am »
as my Vampire is nearing completion, i thought i might start preperations on my next project  :mellow:
what do you get when you put 1 & 1 together, thats right, Mistel.

the idea just got to me, i have a PM 1/72 Me328 model in the stash and an old incomplete Pioneer2 Horten 229 (replaced it with the superiour revell kit).
my plan is to make a Mistel conbination with them, and this wil also be my first Mistel.

the PM Me328 kit is just the basic V1 (short wing) and V2 (longer wing) glider versions.
my plan is to equip it (V2, the long winged version) with 1 or 2 Jumo 004 engines (from a Revell Me262)
as the Ho229 came without a canopy, im gonna close it up with putty and gonna try to scratchbuild a Mistel nose fuse. i figured the unmannned Horten bould be used as a Stealth glide bomb for attacks on london from long distances, the Me328's would the guide the horten to the target or disconnect to fight of incoming fighters, the horten would then be guided to its target by long range radio from stations of the coast of France..

here's a pic of the boxes...

Hi I am Herman Moore a keen modeller and Cape Town South African IPMS Member.
 Am truly interested to see your build of this unique Mistel Combo.
 I am unable to view your Pic.
Although I am linked to photobucket I am still unable to view your build.

Would it be possible for you to e-mail a pic or two of your build - It will truly be well appreciated - I have the same kits in my stash,
I intend to make my Hortens into Seaplanes - I have decided mainly to make as many of my builds [Japanese versions] into Mistels as possible in order to save space.
But also as it will be quite nice to do something different.

Thanks
Herman.

Photobucket's recent 'upgrade' has meant that many of us can't show their pics any more Hermann, sad to say.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)
