Blohm & Voss BV.P.212.03 Luft '46 Jet Fighter Concept (1945)
About the Design
This unusual tailless jet fighter was designed to operate at high altitudes using Germany's new He S 001 jet engine. The last of three similar designs submitted to the Luftwaffe's Emergency Fighter Competition by B&V, the plane began wind tunnel tests in May 1945 -- just days before Germany's surrender.
About the Kit
Small but satisfying, the "Strahljäger" was one of several Luftwaffe '46 models released by Special Hobby during the late 1990's.
This model was built from an original issue.
