Here is my He P.1078C from Airmodel Products.  

The He P.1078C was a never realized fighter, which should have reached a speed of 1000 km/h in 7000 m jet engine HeS 011. It was planned to arm it with two MK 108 30mm machine canons. The design was suggested in January 1945 to the OKL (Air force High Command of the Third Reich).

The new resin kit from Airmodel Products (released in 11/2017) has a good quality and is easy to build. On the front of the wing roots some putty is necessary to make it fitting to the fuselage. Inside the cockpit I added the visor, on the outside the pitot tube and the antenna.

Here you can see the kit:


The model was built within a few days. I painted it with brush and sponge.  The decals are from Peddinghaus and Eduard. Some are from other kits. There are no decals in the box.

I enjoyed a lot building this unique looking jetfighter!

Greetings from Germany.
