    Hi guys!!

    The design of a delta wing interceptor with a vertical jet engine designed by Alexander Lippisch came about towards the end of the Second World War.
    A new drive concept with the help of coal dust or coal preparations was planned for the Lippisch P13a.
    A propulsion-free prototype was built with the help of students from Darmstadt and Munich under the designation "DM 1" (Darmstadt Munich 1) and was found by US troops shortly before the completion on the airfield "Prien am Chiemse". It was brought into the USA for further investigations.

    The kit comes from Revell/Monogram. Colors from Vallejo and Revell.

    Cheers
    Stefan:)

    I like the idea of a coal-powered jet!
