Horten Ho 229

The Horton Ho IX twin-jet tailless fighter-bomber,starting in 1942, the first prototype Ho IX VI was found to be unable to accommodate the two intended BMW 109-003-1 turbojets owing to an unforeseen increase in engine diameter, and it was therefore flown as a glider at Oranienburg during the summer of 1944.

Horten Ho 229...the Germans designed this to be the worlds first ever radar stealth-bomber. Wow.
I hope this comes out one day!

We can't confirm that it was designed it to be intentionally stealth, due to their lack of material at the time. Also, it's more of a fighter than a bomber, however there were bomber variants designated the HO-18A Image and HO-18B. Image

Made a bit more progress, but still a long way to go.

I'm just dropping by, dumping something that might be useful for you guys. A decent Ho 229 3d model made in Google Sketchup. Complete with cockpits, engines, landing gear and spoilers(i think). 2 or 3 years back I once messed around with it and this model was above average in terms of details and quality compared to others.

I'm making an A-12 now. Would be awesome to have this flying next to it!

Horten is done (see current projects).
Just needs an instrument panel in the DAT.

Flies like a brick though.
