Harv, do you really want resin parts that fragile?

The Revell He-219 A-0/A-2 comes with two different antenna configurations (either step 70 or step 71 in the instructions):

I would think the ones that come out straight might be better on the Horten (too close to the intakes otherwise?). If you want them, you know what to do.

I think the outward arms be better. Small nose and the engines are buried deep. But seems all the sets don't include the arms......harv

Ok, I checked the BF110D nachtjäger kit. I don't need the radar antennae for the G-4 so you can have those if you want. Only thing is the arms are really square. I think they might look out of place on the Ho229.

The other thing I dug up is the radar from the Revell FW190 A-8/R11kit. The arms are at least round. There's two of these sprues and I'm planning to build it as a day fighter so won't need them either. They're supposed to be mounted on the wings but should be adaptable for mounting to the nose of the Ho229.

Let me know if either set works for you.

I think your right Carl. Might be more trouble than what there worth. Martin, I must have read directions wrong. It does seem they are included.I think I'll just bite the bullet an order it off Ebay......Harv

I would take Carl up on the Fw190 Yagi antlers... And put them out on the wings.

Realistically (and I say this tongue-in-cheek, because after all it's a what-if anyway), there would be precious little room in the nose of the Horton for the electronics is it stands. Or, for a cleaner look, a FuG 217 Neptune array...
