1/72 Haunebu II – German Flying Saucer

Squadron Models 1/72 Haunebu II – German Flying Saucer  – SQM0001

MMd Squadron offers us a very interesting subject of a futuristic Luftwaffe aircraft, the Haunebu II German Flying saucer.This comes in a very big box full of parts, 125 parts in total. The Kit finished will measure around 14 inches across, a big kit having in mind its only 1/72 in scale. The instruction pages are in color and in a very easy to follow steps and includes a brief history on this Infamous WWII project lead by the Luftwaffe. Squadron did his assignment giving a lot of thinking in the details, the kit show many rivets in different sizes, fitting look pretty neat, interior cabin show some seats and control panels somewhat simplified. A crew should be a new add-on for this section, and a PE Upgrade should improve the looks, even a light and sound kit too. The landing gear consist of 4 set, wheels are ok but might need a upgrade from resin wheel to show weight, and for the gun turrets, some metal gun barrel won’t hurt.The decal sheet is printed by Cartograf and provides a nice selection of insignia and numbering from one to five. Overall this kit will build to beautiful work to be shown on a Furniture, stand alone or in a diorama. Nice work from Squadron, we hope to see more relates kits in a future.

Started with modeling kits at age of 7 with the Monogram Missouri, continue at age of 12 with the Testor F-14 and many other kits until University, work and marriage put at stop at it. Now I'm back working with kits since 2010, and dealing with every type from Tanks to Scifi, and experimenting a lot with the paintings and weathering looking to achieve life-like models.
