Brand AMP
Nation: Germany
Period: WWII
Scale: 1/72
Type: Aircraft
Category Kit

1/72 Silbervogel Antipodal-BomberThe Silbervogel, also known as the "Amerika Bomber" or "Antipodal-Bomber," was an aircraft design developed during World War II by Engineer Eugen Sänger and Professor Irene Bredt in Germany. The name "Silbervogel" in German means "silver bird."It was a hypersonic jet space plane designed to carry bombs over long distances, particularly to strike the United States from German territory. Its goal was to reach hypersonic speeds (over Mach 5) and glide through the atmosphere at very high altitudes before releasing the bombs on targets located far away.The design of the Silbervogel was extremely ambitious and, for the time, very technologically advanced. It had a tapered shape with very thin wings to reduce air resistance and improve hypersonic performance. The plane was to be launched by a liquid-propellant rocket that would accelerate the Silbervogel to high speed and altitude, after which it would switch to high-speed gliding flight.However, the Silbervogel project was never fully realized. During World War II, German resources were limited, and the complex design of the Silbervogel required technologies and resources that were difficult to obtain at that time. In addition, the negative course of the war for Germany further reduced the chances of realizing the project.In the end, the Silbervogel remained only a project on paper and was never built or employed in action. After the war, hypersonic aircraft designs and research were explored by other nations, including the United States and the Soviet Union, which continued the development of hypersonic-powered spaceplanes and missiles.

Type: Aircraft
Category Kit

1/72 Keldysh Sub-Orbital Bomber"Sänger-Bredt Silverbird" refers to the design of a hypersonic jet spaceplane developed during World War II by German aviation pioneers Eugen Sänger and Irene Bredt. The name "Silverbird" refers to the design of the spaceplane, and the name of the two developers, Sänger and Bredt, indicates the creators.The Silverbird project involved the construction of a high-performance jet spaceplane capable of reaching hypersonic speeds at stratospheric altitudes. The design was based on a winged aircraft, with very thin and long wings, in order to reduce drag and maximize performance at hypersonic speeds.The main goal of the project was to make an aircraft that could reach the stratosphere and subsequently escape Earth's gravity and enter Earth orbit. The Silverbird would then become one of the first spacecraft, capable of launching satellites or performing other missions in space.However, the Silverbird project was never fully completed or realized. Technical difficulties and changing events during World War II led to its abandonment before it could be fully developed and tested.Although the Silverbird project was never realized, it was an important starting point in the design of high-performance aircraft and spacecraft, and some of its ideas and concepts were later used in subsequent space projects.

Category Kit

1/72 Horten Ho IX V1 with BMW 003The "Horten Ho IX V1 with BMW 003" refers to a prototype experimental aircraft developed by the Horten brothers during World War II in Germany. Also known as the Horten Ho 229, the plane was a jet fighter-bomber, characterized by its flying wing with no distinctive vertical or horizontal tailpipes.The Horten brothers, Reimar and Walter, were known for their interest in designing jet and tailless aircraft. As the war progressed and the Luftwaffe's growing interest in jet aircraft, they obtained a contract to build a jet fighter-bomber, which led to the creation of the Horten Ho IX.The Horten Ho IX V1 was the first prototype aircraft, powered by BMW 003 jet engines. This prototype performed several flight tests and demonstrations, revealing good performance and superior speed compared to other aircraft of the time. The plane was distinguished by its flying-wing configuration, which had the wing joined directly to the body of the plane without a traditional fuselage.However, despite its promising features, development of the Horten Ho IX was halted before it could enter mass production and become operational. The end of the war and changes in Luftwaffe priorities meant that the Horten Ho IX program was cancelled before it could be fully developed and employed in action.Despite its short development period, the Horten Ho IX became an object of historical and cultural interest. Its flying-wing configuration influenced the development of future aircraft, and it is considered one of the earliest prototype stealth aircraft, as its shape and configuration would have reduced its visibility to enemy radar.
