Horten Interceptor
Luft46: Horten “Rocket Wing” (meaning “Raketenflügel” in German).
About this creation
I first encountered this plane on fantastic-plastic.com. Since there aren’t any other sources available, I don’t know whether there really was such a project or whether it’s just a product of the kit manufacturer’s fantasy.

Anyway, I was fascinated by the combination of radical drive, the unique wing design and the minimalistic cockpit (for a pilot in prone position) right from the beginning.

The Rocket Wing bears nearly all characteristics of the desperate German interceptor concepts from late WWII.

Planned to be rocket-propelled like the Messerschmitt 163, this plane was surely thought to be as light as possible. Hence no retractable undercarriage. Instead, I guess, the plane was to take off on a wheeled trolley and land on skids.



So I built a trolley, too. Displayed like that, the “Raketenflügel” looks much more realistic, at least from my point of view. Hope you like it.

Maybe I have a one-track mind, but it sure looks like a Cylon Raider to me. Out of all the old WWII shows I've seen, I've never seen this plane. Flying wings and jets, but not this. Wow!

Thank you for your interest! I know there were several Horten jet projects, fighters and bombers. I am just not sure about this one, since it's rocket-powered and stuff. But I still like it and I am happy you do, too.

Mind-breaking design, I like it alot! I used the same technique for attaching the bombs on my Space Marine Dropship as you did with your engines, talk about coincidence...

Nice work. It looks a bit like a boomarang. I like how you choose unusual concepts for your MOCs. I'm anxious to see what you choose for the contest in the WWII Aircraft group. Any thoughts? I'm thinking of doing a XP-79 or XP-81. Have you ever heard of the Lockheed L-133? Peace - Patrick

Quoting David , Very good I especially love the wings,although as John pointed out i think it would look alot better if it had a clear windshield but still its awesome.....also is it minifigure scale??? -----David
Yes, it's minifig scale, like my other planes. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to add a cockpit, so, again, I used black bricks for the canopy.

Quoting Henrik Hoexbroe Nice little thingy. How did you fasten the rockets to the wing?
I added a picture that shows how I did it.

Quoting john lamarck I thought you would use a star wars canopy because both canopies are very similar. Original design.
I was thinking about that, too. But that would have made the entire model to large. Plus I wanted the Rocket Wing to fit with my other planes, and those also use black bricks for the canopy.
