I hadn't seen one of these before. I suspect not the easiest model to construct. The full size had a colourful history that is worth reading up on. This model flies really well...and looks good with its smoke system on the fast passes.

The Dornier Do 335 was one of the last heavy fighter planes built by the Dornier company at the end of the war although it was too late for the Germans when this plane came into service...( like the ME262, HE163 and Go229... )

Very rare but amazing high performance and flying characteristics with a unique "push-pull" layout.

I saw a 1/4 model in an airshow and looks really good!, surprisingly agile and manoeuvrable.

Looks like a great project but how would you cool the rear engine , or is the rear prop driven through a shaft gear box type layout. ?
