- Special Hobby 1/72 Heinkel He-59B SH72428
This re-release of the Heinkel He 59B is suitable for more experienced modellers. It contains four grey styrene sprues, resin cast parts and a fret of etches. The resin parts have been designed anew now as well as the clear plastic ones which replace the original vacuum-formed items. The decal sheet brings markings for a Legion Condor machine flying over Spain during the civil war and a machine in the colours of the German Luftwaffe in 1942.
The Heinkel He59 was a large, twin-engined biplane fitted with a pair of floats. Its development took place in secret as it was meant for the newly built German naval air force. Production began in late 1933 and the aircraft were deployed in Spain and on both the Western and Eastern fronts during WW2.
