It just didn't make it beyond the prototype phase. Yet it has been the foundation to the B-2 project.
Northrop actually built a replica to evaluate the Ho 229s capabilities...
So the question is more how easy can one get access to their wind tunnel data etc.
Northrop never required Horton to build a wing flyer bomber or a "foundation to the B-2" has only a Hoax. The XB-36 was signed on 1941 and engine work strart on 1942.

The engines of the XB-49, was Allison J35, a engine started to a improve of the General Electric T31, build on 1943.

This has already been discussed. They are doing everything to make sure this thing will behave realistically or it won't happen:

We received some help and some good advices to collect real data on the Horten. We are about to get over 300 pages of declassified paper soon too. We will evalute them and decide in combination if we have a good source of info or not. I will also try to contact some institution soon too, cause there should be real life data available in some way.
If we can manage to get enough info on the flightbehavior and what it should be, we will probably proceed with that beauty. Untill then it is still on hold. I guess during the first quarter of the Year 2016 we will decide about the fate of this project.

I do read fears about the flightmodel quite often here. We still will try to produce a plane that will behave like the original did or would have behaved.
We got some address and a good hint on some info that I already started to pursuit.
The documents have not arrived yet but I contacted another source last week, but do to the fact that we are into the Gazelle release at the moment, I did not focus to much on the HO229 lately. I try to see the upcoming week if the guys I contacted last week are able to help out or want to helpü out. Will see.

What I figured is, that there are informations available on the exact airframe and how it behaves.

Many ways lead to rome guys.

Nevertheless, I wish a happy weekend

It didn't just fly as a glider. The V2 flew with both jet engines 3-4 test flights. ;-)
Just getting the facts straight.

Edit says: Shagrat beat me on that one

Looking forward to it, Belsimtek!

Horten Brothers continued its work in Argentina in the 50s.

They even designed a Supersonic Interceptor that never reached the prototype stage. While Kurt Tank was developing the Pulqui, later also dropped (for 38 F 86 Sabres offered by the US if the development was droped (and Peron deposed). Tank moved to India where his talents were more apreciated, while teh Horten Bros. remained here building Gliders...

the V2 did.... but not the V3, and certainly not the V4+ versions , latter of which are paper planes.
