I'm guessing those are half-generation air-to-air guided missiles under the wings. Nice pic; the Ho-229 was definitely ahead of its time; I just wonder how the Horten brothers would have solved the same instability issues at speed that Jack Northrop had issues with on the YB-49 in the 1950s.
Just saw a documentary on this plane tonight on the National Geographic channel where the guys at the American skunkworks recreated one and then tested it for radar surveillance. Definitely the worlds first stealth aircraft!
First rate illustration, just finished a book called "Last Talons of the Eagle" about these planes and the other experimental designs that were churned out. Is the picture for a book you're working on or are you going to publish your pictures.
