Henschel Hs 129
SCALE & KIT
The Henschel Hs 129 was a World War II ground-attack aircraft fielded by the German Luftwaffe. The aircraft saw combat in Tunisia and on the Eastern Front.
A key requirement of the original specification was that the aircraft be powered by engines that were not in demand for other designs. Prototypes with low-power German Argus As 410 engines of 465 PS (459 hp; 342 kW) failed acceptance test, a more powerful replacement was found with the French Gnome-Rhône 14M engine of 700 PS (690 hp; 515 kW).
The design was relatively effective when it was first introduced, and saw service on the Eastern Front in a variety of front-line roles. As the war continued and anti-tank support became the main goal, the aircraft was continually up-gunned, eventually mounting a 75 mm gun in the anti-tank role that left the plane barely flyable. Only a small number of these B-3 models were produced, late in the war.
Hello All@ Model Aces
It almost goes without saying that the standard of modelling by all of you, are incredibly good, out of this world.
I unfortunately am not able to build anything due to lack of skills and dexterity issues through poor health.
I just wondered if you guys could suggest a CUSTOM MODEL AIRCRAFT Builder? who might build for me on a semi-regular basis?
please feel free to pass on my details to anyone you feel might be able to help.as long as they are genuine and trustworthy I will be very happy.
Wishing you a very Merry christmas from a Yorkshireman living now in Norway.
