In an attempt to create the world's leading military, Hitler tasked Germany's most innovative engineers with developing a series of cutting-edge, often bizarre aircraft - many of which never made it past the drawing board. And, according to some, the Third Reich's scientific capabilities were so progressive that they began work on aseries of secretive spacecraft. Known as "Haunebu," these flying saucers were built upon specialized engines and, again according to some theorists, they remain in underground bases around the world. Representing one of these otherworldly ships, this 1:72 scale model - an exciting collectible in the acclaimed Luft-X series - features an advanced circular design, three undercarriage ball turrets, and authentic German markings.

Haunebu I

In UFOlogy, conspiracy theory, science fiction, and comic book stories, claims or stories have circulated linking UFOs to Nazi Germany. The German UFO theories describe supposedly successful attempts to develop advanced aircraft or spacecraft prior to and during World War II.

Luft-X

The Luft-X range presents affordable, ready-made resin models of proposed experimental military of the Luftwaffe in WWII in 1:72 scale.

Prior to and during the Second World War, German aeronautical engineers working for the Luftwaffe in corporate and university laboratories conceived of, designed and built aircraft that were years ahead of their time.

These secret designs included dramatic improvements in aerodynamics, propulsion and materials. Had there been more time, they may well have changed the outcome of the war. Fortunately for the Allies, the Nazi high command failed to grasp the importance of these advancements until it was too late to make a difference. After the war, captured Luftwaffe designs were studied and integrated into all facets of Allied aircraft development.

The Luft-X collection captures these remarkable aircraft, showcasing the secret developments of WWII German aircraft and posing the haunting question - What if?

Luft-X display airplanes feature:

  • Molded resin construction with no assembly required.
  • Realistic panel lines, antennas, access panels and surface details.
  • Pad printed markings and placards that won't fade or peel like decals.
  • Transparent canopies, revealing detailed cockpit interiors.
  • Presentation stand to display the aircraft "in flight".

Why Resin?
It's very expensive to produce die-casting molds, and manufacturers must sell a large number of models from each mold in order to recoup development costs. Some subjects are so obscure that it's difficult to sell large quantities of them. Resin-casting is a much simpler and less expensive process, and manufacturers can use it to make limited runs of models that can't be cost effectively manufactured in diecast metal. With resin-cast models, collectors can add fascinating and unusual subjects to their collections without the time and difficulty of assembling and painting a model kit.
