Default PMA - New Tooling Horton Gotha GO-229

I got my monthly newsletter from Jumblies and right there in the headlines is the announcement of PMA new Tooling

A Horton GO-229 in 1/72 Scale

Doesnt look took bad, there are alot of small bits but it looks like you can remove the engine cowling and see the engines. There is also options for landing gear up/down. I dont see a stand but it doesnt mean there isnt one.

Price is 60 Pounds

I don't know this company, they main do vehicles and figures this appears to be their first airplane.

Anyone know if they are good? Might still get it as I think the GO-229 has never been done before.

PMA (Precision Model Art - Germany) is the company that put out the very nicely details V-2 rockets a couple of years back. I have one of them and it is excellent. It is however all plastic and my guess is this model would be plastic too. I think you would find the quality to be excellent though. This is an very interesting subject and I would think many collectors would want one.

It has- Luft-X made one. But theirs wasn't well detailed & was u/c up only, on a stand. PMA's tanks, guns, rockets & other military vehicles are very good indeed- intricately detailed with panels/bodywork that lift off to display the detailed engines/cabs. They are mainly plastic/resin- only the chassis are diecast. But that doesn't matter considering the detail & paint finish of the models.

I bought the Luft-X version only to return it......

Made of resin and poorly sculpted moulded in some area’s for my tastes.

The PMA looks to be better.

Plastic or not, this looks very interesting to me. Will need to see actual pictures before making a decision.

PMA's version will also be mainly resin/plastic- only the bottom part of their models are diecast. But their models are nevertheless brilliantly finished & detailed.

The nine-inch wingspan would not fit in my space for my WWII theme shelf.

I think for the detail of this model, die-cast or not, i would make space for this. As well as being an outstanding model, it`s the fore father of stealth, the B2 bomber, by way of the XB49. It`s a beautiful thing. Good on PMA for producing such wonderful models.

Good points. The wingspan on an A-10 Havoc is about 10.25 inches.

But I would have a difficult time adding one to one of my WWII shelves.PMA - New Tooling Horton Gotha GO-229-img_5182.jpg
