Henschel HS129 - Ground Attack Plane - Scratchbuilt

After several 1 engine planes I decided to build a new one - 2mot and not yet available in store as a foam version..... here it is ... my HS 129 Henschel Tank destroyer - or as Germans would say "Erdkampfflugzeug"

.

meanwhile the loose parts I put together here are glued/fixed and the setup ( excl the Motors) are built in .... next is the Motormount and the color ... I guess it will be winter cammo

Awesome! I love that plane. You have captured the strange fuselage shape very well.

Thanks to all ... about the Canopy . Just flat PVC material - folded and glued on a Depron frame the black masking is duct tape for sticking on cars ( 3mm wide)

Thank you, Hansjoerg! I'm trying to make my planes look more like planes and canopies have been one of the things that were giving me problems.
