Description

This is an injection-plastic aircraft model kit.

An interesting combo set from Dragon: their Fw190A-8 together with their Ta154, with new parts added to enable you to build the Mistel variant proposed (but apparently never built) near the end of the War. Care will be needed when cutting off the nose of the 154 to install the explosive nose, as it is not clearly marked where you need to cut. All the Ta154 parts, including canopies, are included, so one could also build the two kits "stock" if so desired. Since this particular Mistel was intended as a "formation buster" to be used as a large remotely exploded missile against 8th Air Force bomber formations, and not a "bunker buster" or air-to-ground weapon as the Ju88-based Mistel were, the explosive nose provided may not be needed anyway. Apparently the plan was to rip out the cockpits and pack the area with high explosives, fly the lower component at high speed into the formation and detonate it from the Fw190, not crash it directly into the B-17s or B-24s.
