After I found the cool looking but fictional double seater of the
Messerschmitt Me P.1106 AZmodels offers, I quickly bought the kit. The kit of the single seater made by HUMA was waiting for it´s assembly already a few years. The HUMA shows the jetfighter as it was really planned (but never built).
The A-Version I built out of the box. The
quality of the old HUMA-kit is
good, fast and easy to assemble. I added the visor, pitot tube and the antenna. It´s painted in a winter camouflage.
The designers of AZmodels gave a larger wingspan to the model. Because of
the sweep, this would mean that the CG is moved backward, too. So it would be behind the main gear and the plane would drop on its tail. To make it
more realistic I cut off a bit more than the half of the outer wings. Further I added the antenna and two Ruhrstahl X-4 missiles from Antares
