1/72 Airmodel Products - Blohm & Voss BV P.209.02

Gallery Article by Thomas Brückelt on Nov 27 2018



The model of the BV P.209.02 was built from the excellent Airmodel-resin kit:


The project was dated in 1944, it never came to production. It was planned to use a He S 011 turbojet engine and three MK 108 (Cal. 30 mm) as armament.

The parts from the kit are very accurate. Cockpit and engine are very well detailled. The canopy is a deepdrawn part.

I decided to make a night fighter out of my BV P.209. I used the antenna on the nose and the external fuel tanks I had left from my Me 1106B from AZ models, see here:


Further I added seat belts out of aluminium foil, the gunsight, the pitot tube and the antenna on the back of the fuselage.

A bit extra weight (~ 8 g) in the nose is necessary to keep the model on its three wheels.

Because of the high quality standard of the kit, it´s recommended for modellers with less experience with resin kits.

The kit includes no decals, so I took some from other kits and after market sheets.

The fighter was built within a few days, there was almost no rework necessary. 

Enjoy the pictures!
