Quick Looks

Manufacturer: Sharkit
Name: Horten X (XIIIb)
Scale: 1:72
Kit contents: 15 resin pieces
transparent plastic sheet
instruction sheet
Comments: The parts are molded with finely recessed panel lines. There is some flash, but no pinholes on the parts. The fuselage halves and wing roots are keyed, so you'll have to be careful when removing the pour plugs. The transparent canopy sheet was taped to the top of my box: I couldn't find it at first. The template for the canopy is already marked on the sheet , but another template is printed on the instructions in case you need to make another one: the canopy needs to be folded and glued down onto the resin cockpit part. The instruction sheet also includes a short program history in English and French and several assembly views. No painting guide is given, since this aircraft never reached the prototype stage.
