This was one of the short run kits from RS Models in 1:72. My penchant for the odd was a little off in that this plane wasn't that weird and it actually got made. The so called "weird" part was that they install a jet engine in the rear.  The Luftwaffe didn't go for it because of the expense, but a few were made for other countries.

And here it is all done. The instructions said the paint was RLM 02, but my phone had other ideas. Thanks for looking.

Sweet! I've never seen that one before, and I suspect from the look of the kit parts that it took more than you alluded to to get such a good result. Thanks for sharing, and congrats!

Fantastic job Kevin! I built a 1/72 scale He-112 a long time ago but mine didn't have the rocket engine in it. This is a very nice model!

Thanks guys.  
Gil: well, the kit is resin so there are those issues.  But I guess the biggest issue was instead of the resin parts being on a stem attached to the pour block, these were directly on the block.  So it was sweat inducing cutting thin parts like the landing gear from the big pour block. Thankfully nothing broke. 😉
