Background information:

The brothers Reimar and Walter Horten were Germany's leading experts in the field of flying wing aircraft until the end of the Second World War. They brought their experience and expertise to Sonderkommando 9, which was responsible for the further development of flying wing aircraft. The history and development of the Horten Go 229 is fascinating, from the first prototypes to the final version, which reached speeds of over 780 km/h. With this kit you can recreate a piece of aviation history and proudly display it in your collection.
