Hi everyone,

I plan to do a a Tamiya 219 opened up with aires upgrade kit and give it the colors of one of the two LB-79; the two he219 integrated in the Czech air force (and later incorporated in institute of aeronautics)
I ve got 2 books on the 219; the one of Roland Remp and the Kagero and although they are great source of info, they are lacking infos on the LB-79. Internet is not too much of a help either.

Does anyone have more info or pics about these 2 planes?

Thanks in advance

IIRC the old Aircraft Profile contains a drawing and/or photo. Anyone with it at hand ...

It's a tiny, fuzzy, grainy b&w photo

You really can't tell much except that it appears to be dark on top and light below, with Czech roundels and the white code.

Here's the, um, profile from the Profile (oddly enough, #219 in the Profile Books series):

Funny You Mention It

I was just told a few days ago by a very well-placed friend from Prague that the undisclosed experiments using the He 219 was ejection seat testing, indigenous-design seats. It is apparently unrecorded what exactly happened to the two airplanes, other than all the "western designs" were summarily scrapped under Soviet decree, including a lot of freebies given the Czechs post war by the non-Soviet allies.
