The Heinkel P.1077 Julia project was a single seat interceptor that was under construction at the closing stages of WW2, but was never completed. This airplane was one of the products of the last phase of the Third Reich, when the lack of materials and the dire need to put up a strong defense against the devastating Allied raids required such craft to be built as quickly as possible in underground factories.
The pilot would have flown the aircraft from a prone position. Takeoff was to be aided by four solid fuel boosters which were jettisoned at burnout, and a jettisonable "trolley" sled for take-off. It would climb at a nearly vertical angle to operational altitude, after which the pilot would have only five minutes for combat action, before gliding the aircraft to land on a fixed skid.
This 1/24 model has been designed to be built as is, with painted canopies, or it can have the interior detailed to the modellers choice using parts from donor kits, or Photo Etch detail sets from companies such as Eduard. The modeller will have to add small detail parts such as the rocket pipe, and the seat cushions, to his or her tastes. To make clear canopy parts for the Julia, please read this excellent article from IPMS Stockholm, which discusses one of several methods: https://www.ipmsstockholm.org/magazine/2002/08/stuff_eng_tech_moulding_canopies.htm
The simplicity of the shape of this aircraft mean that a cheaper versatile plastic can be used and a light sand with #600 sandpaper will remove any print lines if necessary.
