    Hi my friends.
    A little divertissement this time, a 'classic Luft 46' plane... the famous Focke Wulf Ta 183. It never flew, but had a lot of sons... as the unlucky Argentinian Pulqui, probably the Mig 15 and the Saab J-29 Tunnan.
    The kit is the very basic PM. I scratchbuilt internal, wheels bay and other things. Added two high explosive Merkw├╝rdigliebe bombs...

    What an ugly kite. But the model looks very nice. Good work. :)

    I don't know what kind of an interceptor it would have been -- but I have always loved the look of that plane. The Airplane Bubble Gum cards (think baseball or hockey) :) that we had in the early-mid '50s (during and immediately after Korea) depicted that 'kite' as a Soviet Mig 17 :) - and I remember thinking that it looked more sinster than the Mig-15. Naturally, it was an artist's concept on the BG card :). Good times then .... to be a boy :).

    Great build, kruaxi.
