News: Amusing Hobby Focke-Wulf Triebflügel

Ever since Il-2 1946 I’ve been a fan of the Focke-Wulf Triebflügel (literally Thrust Wing in English). This outlandish looking aircraft looked like it was the illegitimate son of a Me-262 jet and a Flettner Fi 282 helicopter. I’ve literally searched for a kit of this aircraft for years, and while one or two companies had existed that made one, both companies had either ceased production or ceased to exist entirely. They can be found on eBay for often ridiculous prices and when they popup they are usually gone in a matter of days. 

So when I happened to visit the website of Modellbau König I was pleasantly surprised to learn that Amusing Hobby is planning a 1/48 scale Triebflügel in February 2019!
