Heinkel He 112|
Kit FF-29 Heinkel 112 is a 1/15 scale, flying model that uses the
Box and Former method of construction.
Pre-1942 design, eligible for Society of Antique Modelers (SAM) contests.
Designed by Walter and Siegfried Günter of Ernst Heinkel Flugzeugwerke
company and first flown in September 1935. The He 112 was a low wing
monoplane fighter . It's obscurity is likely best understood by considering
the fame of the plane it lost the competition to, the Messerschmitt
Bf 109. The early He 112 models submitted for testing were inferior
to the Messerschmitt Bf 109; they were a blend of old and new features
that couldn't compete with the all-modern 109. The He 112 was not
as successful as the Bf 109 but it was used by the armies of Germany,
Romania, Japan, Hungary and Spain.
