German Horten Ho-229 A-1 -1/72 scale model kit

This is the 1/72 scale model kit of the German Horten Ho-229 A-1. It is made by PM Model in Istanbul/Turkey along with other 1/72 kits that we have yet to see more widely available. Like the Messerschmitt Me-P-111Focke Wulf Ta-183 ”Hückebein” 1/72 and WWII German Lippisch P.13a Ramjet – 1/72 PM Model Kit.

PM Models 1/72 German Horten Ho-229 A-1

These are a less than $10.00 kits, so bear that in mind and don’t expect that much. They do make a great weekend project or a nice gift for the young modeler. Parts count on these kits are very low.

The cockpit as you can see is very plain with no details whatsoever but on the exterior you can do a nice job with you airbrush skills. Many modelers complain about lack of details but in my humble opinion, some cheap models are best representations of more expensive die-cast counterparts. No Swastikas are included with these kits, mines are stock swastikas from Aeromaster Decals.

Review sample courtesy of my wallet. These kits are available at the auction place or: Our experience with this seller either thru eBay or directly has been very positive. Tell them we sent you.
