Welcome through...

 

 

This is a multi thread build

To return to the House of Horrors Enter Here.

 

DOOR 1

 

Horton Go 229 1:72  Revell 

  Horrifying!!!!!!!!!

 

Welcome through door one dear friends, inside we have the Horton Go 229. I have loved the Aeroplane from the first moment I saw it. its a Bonkers looking thing that deserves some attention.

I will be building mostly OOB. ( mostly ) we will see how it goes. I'll start the thread with box and tree shots. 

 

The bench is clear!!

This side opening box had had its head ripped open to expose its contents. 😵

 

50188464957_1c635e8780_b.jpg

inside we have four trees. three opaque and one clear. Some instructions and some decals. The model looks really nice and crisp. 

The main fuselage? with bits and bobs.

and the wings / wing.

50188464937_8f3053e9e1_b.jpg

Not sure which scheme but I do know it will have custard on it. ☀️ Here are the deals and instructions.

Looks like a lovely little kit. Can't wait to get my teeth in into it.

 

Hope you're all having a splendid week.

 

The Doctor. 👨‍🔬

If you do it with extended landing gear, this will really be horrifying! Otherwise really nice to build, from the time Revell moved into more modern ages of moulding. 

biting nails,

I've always been interested in this strange aircraft, hopefully you'll do a better job of this kit than I did! so I'll watch with interest. 

 

I chose to go with landing gear down as I had no pilot figure, this proved to be quite delicate to piece together with plenty of swearing involved but I think it turned out ok considering. That large red dash walk line decal was also a pain to fit properly but that's probably more due to my inexperience than anything.

This curious aircraft is on my wish list of kits, even though jets are a little outside my area of interest. I'm going to enjoy this thread! (And I'm hoping it's available in 1:48 🤞)

That’s the plan. 😱 I’ll start biting my nails too. 🙃

Thanks. Yes it’s a lovely looking thing. I’ll try my best to get her wheels down. 😇

I think it is in 1/48. I have seen a 1/32. Now that would be a thing. Glad to have you all along for the ride.

(yes, I am quoting myself...) don't get me wrong, it's easy building, but it is totally and utterly guilty

 

of nothing more than spoiling the look of the thing. Do not say nobody warned you.

I have this kit half built in a box in the garage.  I moved up to 1/48 as I was struggling with the size of the parts.  Must finish it one day, so all tips gratefully received

I’m looking forward to seeing you build this. I have a couple of these Revell kits in my stash, plus the big ZM kit and their new 1/72 version.

Hello fiends.

This bonkers bat like creature is the first kit I will start. 🦇

The Cockpit is the first part to be built.

50202259016_9c62c38a13_b.jpg

Lovely little side struts cleaned and added.

50201705473_c3cdb24617_b.jpg

The little seat is actually nicely detailed but I may add scratch belts too 🤔 

50202511062_cdc85e6316_b.jpg

The IP is a decal. I might add some discs. Hmmmm OOB . 😂

( onwards ) Intakes built.

50202245101_f7e5bf664c_b.jpg

These look like little rockets but it’s more jet action. 😇

50202246991_150f1a9233_b.jpg

I’m jumping about a bit on the old instructions. Next up is the lower fuselage.

50202247751_d2ce3f363f_b.jpg

This frame gets added. I love the Internal framing going on. 😍 this bit I figured out is a piece of the tree. Only after cleaning it up thinking it was an oxygen tank or something. 🤪😂🤣 

The actual detail on this kit is amazing. 

50201700198_c5d6cd7ab5_b.jpg

The guns need to be built next.

50201702568_e8c15b418e_b.jpg

Cleaned and built. Lots of crisp detail.

50202512757_3ba1f08910_b.jpg

Putting this all together I can’t help but think it will all be lost when buttoned up.

50201697403_8b40f0b991_b.jpg

The guns are just a dry fit for now but I’ll pop the halves together to see how and what you will see.

50202256236_40856e1b92_b.jpg

The guns get attached to those pegs so you might see the less detailed side? What even? 😬 I’ll see how that goes.

I do know However that this ‘Orrible set of pin marks will be seen.

50202504752_9fb99d41bc_b.jpg

instead of sanding and scratching I took the easy option and blanked it off with plasticard.

50202240951_3ae7fcf054_b.jpg

As you can see in the background I also started on the UC. A little delicate with silly tree parts in the oddest places.

50202257956_4a30363e8b_b.jpg

Chopped base tidy and glue.

50202257926_b541c55b0b_b.jpg

pretty good!   The light this morning was ace. 🤗 I could build this kit all day but there are others and that’s the point right.

I’ll pack this lot away.

50201701558_953a858f81_b.jpg

And move onto another kit. 
oooh exciting. 
Thanks for popping in. Hope you’re having fun and a great weekend. Comments welcome and as always.

Happy Modelling.

 

Johnny.

Excellent progress! It looks like a very nice kit, and substantially more affordable than the ZM offering.

I went to look in the garage to see how far I got with mine.  Turns out I was further along than I thought.

I think I stopped because I hadn’t got any paint to match the RLM colours.  The temptation is to go with the box colours and do Humbrol 163 / 27 top and get a pale blue for the underside

Thanks. I did check on scalemates. It says That it was a new tool by Revell?

Thanks CC. The only problem if finding with multi builds is keeping up with the threads.

Sorry for the delay in progress guys. I have been spending what little time I have between work on the other builds in “The House Of Horrors” I will endeavour to get some more of this done today. Yesterday I primed.

50257957466_4154b21e7a_b.jpg


I’ll get more paint in later on today. 
Thanks for following along.

That’s just masking tape covering the cockpit internals while she got her primer coat. I don’t tend to fix the canopy & mask it, but paint it separately & fit it at the end.  Must order some paint

If I may: Here is my build from a few years ago. For a Luft '46 subject, quite a detailed kit.
