Revell Focke-Wulf Flitzer Whiffer in 1/72 Scale

The Focke-Wulf Flitzer design had entered the mock-up phase at the end of the war in Europe.  It shares the same general configuration as the successful DeHavilland Vampire, but early drawings added a liquid-fueled rocked for added acceleration.  This feature would likely have been dropped on production aircraft.  I also thought the wings looked a bit short and extended them both by about ¾ of an inch (18 mm) at the tips.

The aircraft is painted in a late-war camouflage scheme with the blue-white-blue Reich’s Defense Bands of JG 300.  The Ruhrstahl X-4 air-to-air missiles are spares from Revell P.1101 kits.
