An ugly airplane and an even uglier kit but I got it finished just in time for Flintcon link

I must disagree on ugly. Can't comment on the kit but always a fond spot for this aircraft. And you did a very nice job on it.

Thanks everybody.

Marc, I guess that my feelings are prejudiced by the previous product by Henschel; the HS-123 (the Airfix kit of it is excellent link ) which is a snazzy sesquiplane with fixed, spatted undercarriage. To my eye the HS-129 is so business-like that I can't warm up to it. But, prior to 1932, Henschel had only made locomotives so I probably should give them a break. The aircraft certainly did its job and was the engineering inspiration for the A-10 Warthog

Very crisp and clean. A funny looking bird, as you say. But you've done a great job.

great job on those,

I have both the tankbuster and the dive bomber in my collection.

Looks good. A lot of modellers will put a small clear plastic disc in place of the propeller and paint squiggly lines on to make it look like motion ("prop blur").
