• HEINKEL He 111. The Latter Years: The Blitz and War in the East to the Fall of Germany (Air War Archive)

    The Heinkel He 111 was the main workhorse of the Luftwaffe’s bomber force throughout much of the Second World War. Consequently, when Hitler launched Operation Barbarossa in June 1941, three entire Kampfgeschwader consisted of He 111s. Initially used as direct support for the German ground forces, as the campaign progressed the He 111 was switched to attacking the Soviet infrastructure, particularly trains and marshaling yards, and used as a transport aircraft taking in supplies and for troop evacuation. Variants of the He 111 were used in anti-shipping roles, in both the Atlantic and the Mediterranean, and even for aerial launching of V-1 flying bombs, continuing the war against the towns and cities of the United Kingdom. In this selection of unrivaled images collected over many years, and now part of Frontline's new War in the Air series, the operations of this famous aircraft in the latter years of the Second World War are portrayed and brought to life. A companion title to Heinkel He 111: The Early Years.

    The Heinkel HE-111 was a basic Medium bomber of the German Luftwaffe and was used in the initial phase of world war II. It became one of the most characteristic machines in the battle of Britain. It was designed long before the war as a passenger plane that was supposed to have better performance Thanks to its elliptical wings. Numerous Heinkel versions were used on almost all fronts during world war II, mainly as strategic bomber, but also to a lesser degree as a torpedo bomber and transport aircraft.

  • Heinkel He 111 (Crowood Aviation Series)

    The Heinkel He 111 is perhaps the best known of all the Luftwaffe's World War Two bombers. Designed originally as a civil airliner, it made its mark in the bomber role in the Spanish Civil War. Active from the beginning of WWII, the He 111 played a crucial part in the bombardment of targets in Britain and, later, the Eastern front. The author's history of this important aircraft places it firmly in the context of the course of WWII, and shows how it went from being a fast, effective machine to a seriously outclassed death-trap, attempting to stay on the offensive right up until the end of the war.

  • Heinkel He-111 Bomber 1/72 Model Airplane Italeri

    The Heinkel He 111 was a German aircraft designed by Siegfried and Walter Gunter in the early 1930s in violation of the Treaty of Versailles. Often described as a "Wolf in sheep's clothing", it masqueraded as a transport aircraft, though its actual purpose was to provide the Luftwaffe with a fast medium bomber.Perhaps the best-recognised German bomber due to the distinctive, extensively glazed, bullet-shaped "greenhouse" nose of later versions, the Heinkel was the most numerous and the primary Luftwaffe bomber during the early stages of World War II. It fared well until the Battle of Britain, when its weak defensive armament, relatively low speed, and poor manoeuvrability were exposed. Nevertheless, it proved capable of sustaining heavy damage and remaining airborne. As the war progressed, the He 111 was used in a variety of roles on every front in the European Theatre. It was used as a strategic bomber during the Battle of Britain, a torpedo bomber during the Battle of the Atlantic, and a medium bomber and a transport aircraft on the Western, Eastern, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, and North African Fronts.

  • Heinkel He 111 Walk Around

    The Heinkel 111 saw service on all of Germany’s military fronts in the European Theater of WWII. The 111 entered the war as a medium bomber, supporting Wehrmacht ground campaigns. After the tide in the conflict had turned against the Reich, and air superiority had been achieved by the Allies, the aircraft was largely relegated to transport functions. This iconic warplane had its origins as a cutting-edge civil airliner in the mid-1930s, but war was looming and it was adapted for use as a bomber. The first mass-produced versions, the He 111E and F, served in the Condor Legion with Nationalist forces in the Spanish Civil War, paving the way to further military engagement once WWII broke out. Although produced in large numbers and exported to many countries before and during the war, few examples survive today.

There are several gun position on the plane, these do not move. The propellers are glued in place, they do not turn. A plastic display stand is included with the model. This is really a "no-play" model or a "display-only" model. It is mostly metal and very heavy. It also has a number of antennas which look great but are very fragile. If you have small kids that like to play with your models, save yourself some frustration (and money) and wait till later to get a model like this one.

  • Airfix Heinkel He III H-6 1:72 Military Aircraft Plastic Model Kit

    Addressing many of the shortcomings of the earlier versions, the Heinkel He.III ‘H' series was produced in greater numbers than any other variant. With greater power from the Jumo 211 engines, better defensive armament and heavier weapons loads, these aircraft were used right up until the last days of the war. Although the Heinkel He III was no longer classed as an adequate attack bomber on the Western Front by 1941, it did go on to serve with distinction in a variety of different roles and in every theatre of Luftwaffe operation. Successive upgrades allowed the aircraft to deliver a more effective weapons payload, whilst also providing the crew with much better defensive armament. The internal weapons bay was no longer used to carry bombs, but was converted to house an additional fuel tank, which allowed for much longer patrols and was particularly useful for maritime operations. Perhaps the most interesting missions carried out by ‘H' model Heinkel He IIIs was that of the torpedo carrying maritime attack bomber. Used in both the Battle of the Atlantic and against targets in the Mediterranean and on the Eastern Front, Luftwaffe units enjoyed notable successes against Allied shipping, until the weight of Allied air superiority began to take its toll of experienced torpedo bom...

  • HEINKEL He 111. The Early Years: Fall of France, Battle of Britain and the Blitz (Air War Archive)

    Considered to be the best known German bomber of the Second Wold War, the Heinkel He 111 served in every military front in the European theater, having first being deployed in the Spanish Civil War in 1936. It then saw extensive service in the invasion of Poland, the Norweigan campaign and the invasion of the Low Countries and France in 1940.When the Luftwaffe was tasked with destroying Britain’s ability to resist invasion in 1940, the He 111 formed almost half of the Gruppen employed by Luftflotte 2 and Luftflotte 3. When the Luftwaffe switched to attacking cities and industrial sites the Heinkel 111 was widely employed, with raids against targets such as London, Coventry, Bristol, Birmingham and Liverpool.In this selection of unrivaled images collected over many years, the operations of this famous aircraft in the early years of the war – particularly the invasion of Poland, the Blitzkrieg in the West, the Battle of Britain and the very early stages of the Blitz – are portrayed and brought to life.
