1/144 He-162D Volksjeager - Brengun




1/144 He-162D Volksjeager - Brengun
Injected plastic (1x Kit) plus decals

The Heinkel He 162 Volksjäger (German, "People's Fighter"), the name of a project of the Emergency Fighter Program design competition, was a German single-engine, jet-powered fighter aircraft fielded by the Luftwaffe in World War II. Designed and built quickly, and made primarily of wood as metals were in very short supply and prioritised for other aircraft, the He 162 was nevertheless the fastest of the first generation of Axis and Allied jets. Volksjäger was the Reich Air Ministry's official name for the government design program competition won by the He 162 design. Other names given to the plane include Salamander, which was the codename of its construction program, and Spatz ("Sparrow"), which was the name given to the plane by Heinkel.

He 162D — proposed upgrade with a configuration similar to C-series but a dihedral forward-swept wing.

I would think that the H-162A Photo-etch kit would also fit this item
