1/144 Horten XVIIIB-2 - "Project Amerika" - Fantastic Plastic

Horten XVIIIB-2 (1945) German Luft '46 "Project Amerika" International Bomber Concept

The XVIIIB-2 was the last of the Horten Brothers' "Project Amerika" flying wing bomber designs submitted in response to the Luftwaffe's late-war attempt to build an intercontinental bomber that could strike the U.S. mainland from Europe.

Purportedly developed in part with Messerschmitt and Junkers engineers, the bomber resembled the Lippisch DM-1 in that it featured a huge tail with the cockpit contained within it. The plane would have been powered by six BMW 003 turbojets contained within casings below its wings. Defensive machine guns were also placed within its nose and rear fuselage.
