Hello Friend!
I am glad to propose you this very nice model kit with wonderful art picture on the box.

In the box you can find all for building of model:

  • detailed plastic parts;
  • decals for model from real historical events;
  • photo-etched parts for the high detailing;
  • transparent parts for imitation of glass;
  • coloring schemes for your model;
  • detailed illustrated instruction in English.


On 1 March 1944, the first prototype H.IX V1, an unpowered glider with fixed tricycle landing gear, performed its maiden flight. Flight results were very favorable, but there was an accident when the pilot attempted to land without first retracting an instrument-carrying pole extending from the aircraft. Following the transference of design responsibility from the Horten brothers to Gothaer Waggonfabrik, the company's design team implemented several changes: they added a simple ejection seat, substantially redesigned the undercarriage to enable a higher gross weight, changed the jet engine inlets, and added ducting to air-cool the jet engine's outer casing to prevent damage to the wooden wing.

But I have to warn!
The kit is unassembled and unpainted.
The kit don't contain paints, glue and tools for assembly.
The pictures is for illustration purpose only.

I am sure you will have great fun a building this model.
Thank you for your time.

Good shopping.
