1/72 Lippisch FG 10 on Panther

Gallery Article by Thomas Brückelt on Jan 15 2018



The Lippisch FG 10 was a never realized project, published in November 1941.  It´s a radio controlled, flying bomb with the layout similar to the Me 163 Komet. It should have been propelled by a rocket engine.

My friend Markus made the fuselage with his 3D-printer for me. The wings and vertical stabilizer I made out of plastic sheet. Matthias from Airmodel Products (www.airmodel.de) sent me the booster rockets from the kit of the Heinkel He P.1080 ( http://www.arcair.com/Gal15/14101-14200/gal14166-HeP1080-Bruckett/00.shtm ). 
Thanks a lot for your support, my friends!

I had the idea to place the FG 10 on a mobile platform. I used the chassis of a "Panther Ausführung G" from Italeri and built a launch pad from scratch out of plastic materials and carbon fiber rods.

The model was painted with brush and sealed with flat (chassis + launch pad) and silk (FG 10) varnish.

I enjoyed very much making this unknown project visible.
