"Triebflugel" 1/48th scale

     The Triebflugel is one of those Luft '46 projects I have wanted to do for years but never thought I would see a mainstream injection moulded kit. Amusing Hobby proved us all wrong. So, once I cleared some shelf space in 2019, I took the plunge and purchased their 1/48th scale Focke-Wulf Triebflugel kit.

    The problem with such projects is this: how to make them original? You have a world of possibilities and can mark up this flying machine in any wartime markings you like. It is not like accuracy is an issue here. So I am thinking maybe an example captured in US markings. Maybe a nightfighter version with radar. Like with the Academy Huckebein, I shall ponder this for a while.

Paints are indicated as RLM colours from Ammo of Mig Jiminez but have odd arrows between colours with no clue as to what this means.

Aftermarket Extras

       
There is no aftermarket for the Amusing Hobby Triebflugel however you can use your imagination. Resin cockpit and armament sets for the Me-262 will be a good start.

LF Models 1/48th scale C4829 Captured Bf 109G Decals Part II purchased for this project off of Hannants in February 2020 These decal sheets are grossly over-priced for what you get. These are unusual and attractive schemes. The decals are a good start if you wish for a captured machine in British markings. LF Models 1/48th scale C4854 Captured Fw190A Decals Part II also from Hannants in Feb 2020.
