Heinkel He.P.1080 Luft '46 Fighter Concept (1944)
About the Design
One of many point-defense fighter concepts developed by Germany to protect the Fatherland during the waning months of WWII, the Heinkel P.1080 was to be powered by two 900mm-diameter Lorin-Rohr ramjets, which were mounted on either side of its fuselage. The plane would be launched via four solid-fuel rockets that would be jettisoned shortly after take-off, and the plane would land via a single extendable skid.
Armament was to consist of two KH 108 30mm cannon.
Like many "Luft '46" designs, the P.1080 never went further than the design stage.
About the Kit
This is the first kit produced by Kampfflieger, a small GK company from Ukraine. The model was a single-piece resin cast designed in CAD and produced using stereolithography.
This kit was built from an original issue.
