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.

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.
