Lippisch Li.P.13B Luft'46 Jet Fighter Concept (1944)
About the Design
The follow-up to the Li.P-13A fighter, the Li.P-15B was Alexander Lippisch's twin-intake version of a coal-powered ramjet interceptor. Designed in December 1944, the plane featured a retractable skid in place of conventional landing gear. When parked, the plane was to sit on the edges of its down-turned wingtips.
About the Kit
The Li.P-13B was one of the first kits produced by Anigrand Craftworks of China. The it had only about a half-dozen pieces -- including a vacuform canopy -- but successfully captured Herr Lippisch's elegant design.
This mode was built from an original issue.
