Luftwaffe modelling - new Bachem 349 Natter in 1:72 from hauler.cz, test shots of Revell Heinkel He 219 in 1:32 scale

First in a new line of plastic injection molded kits with etch details, Bachem Natter in 1:72, first test shot build by Libor.

"...this is the first Hauler injection molded aircraft kit. I built the very first test shot without having at hand the etched parts and decals that are not yet available (the gun sight came from spare box). Therefore I built a "generic" example as found after the war. The kit is on sale now.."
