Description

 

This is Monogram’s 1/48 scale Heinkel He 111 H-4 WWII German medium bomber.  The model has the color scheme and markings of an aircraft assigned to KG53 (Legion Condor).  It participated in the September 15, 1940 raid over England (considered “Battle of Britain Day”), was damaged and forced to crash land with two wounded crew members. 

I built this model in 1999.  Listed below are the modifications/additions that were made:

  • Photo-etched seatbelts/harnesses/gun ring sights

  • Scratch built landing light to front wing

  • Scratch built floor sections

  • Small diameter wire for “Lorenz” lower fuselage antennas

  • Fishing line was used for the rigging details

This is one of my favorite WWII planes and the Monogram model is a real jewel.  It required some extra work to get the major parts to fit up properly, but I believe it is on the same level of a Hasegawa or Tamiya kit. 

This model was fortunate enough to win a 1st Place award at the 1999 Orlando, Florida IPMS Convention.
