Horten Ho-XVIII

Here is my finished Sharkit Ho-XVIII model. No inspiration for a back story at the moment, so just the pictures for now.









It's a very large aircraft. Some pictures with a Ho-IX for scale.

Oooooooooooohhhh, LOVELY long wings!  :wub:
Kit's Rule 1 ) Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage
Kit's Rule 2) The backstory can always be changed to suit the model

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

Very smart - and you're ramping up your build rate, Tom, aren't you!  Putting most of the rest of us to shame!

If it aint broke ,,fix it until it is .
Over kill is often very understated .
I know the voices in my head ain't real but they do come up with some great ideas.
Theres few of lifes problems that can't be solved with the proper application of a high explosive projectile .

Do not condemn the judgement of another because it differs from your own. You may both be wrong.

Tom builds in the winter, then paints everything in the summer. So this is a year's production getting finished...
