Shown at a Northrop Grumman facility in California in late 2008, the Horten 2-29 replica, like the original, is constructed largely of wood and bonded with glue and nails.

The new craft's body was constructed around a rotor, which allowed the replica to be manipulated atop a five-story-tall column. There, in January 2009, the craft was subjected to World War II-style radar.
