The most noticeable element of the BV 209.02 is clearly the forward-swept wings, intended to alleviate some of the perceived shortcomings of straight-winged models such as the compressibility problems at high speeds and instability at low speeds. Though it was never built, it was projected to be powered by a HeS 011 turbojet and be armed with three Mk. 108 30mm cannons.
Part of the acclaimed Luft-X line of experimental German aircraft, this 1/72 scale resin model features a see-through canopy, a well-appointed cockpit, realistic front intake, authentic markings, and a display stand. Measures approximately 5" long with a 4½" wingspan.
