Focke Wulf Ta-183 Huckebein

When I started this kit along with the Me-328’s, my goal was to stay busy until I could get the other builds painted. My past experiences with PM Models hasn’t been the most fruitful. I fully expected a harder than normal time. The Ta-184 kit most definitely is not an award winner. It is, however, not a bad build. I enjoyed this one a lot. 

Like I said before, my airbrush botched the paint job. I didn’t want to get any deeper with it so I left it as is and I’m ok with it. The end result could have been much worse.

  1. I do love those end of war German planes and some of the planned big bombers capable of cross Atlantic flight.. It’s a shame that the designs and technology was on the wrong side. Imagine the 262 (my personal favourite) all shiny alu and nose art.

  2. Some of these are the most bizarre aircraft ever made yet they are pushing the boundaries of aviation. The Germans were way ahead of the allies what a shame such technology was put to such terrible uses. Another nice and interesting one for the cabinet.

  3. I’d never seen this particular WWII German jet before. A bit of research showed it never actually flew, but was, post-war, the basis for the Argentinian FMA Pulqui II, and, some experts claim, the inspiration for the MIG-15. When I first saw your model, it made me think of the de Havilland Vampire. Of course, we all know, those brilliant German designers never faced war-crimes trials, but were quietly snapped up by America, Russia, Britain, etc.
