1/72 RS Models (Resin) Heinkel 112 V6 (A type) Kondor Legion
The Heinkel 112 V6 was a prototype of the Heinkel 112A, which ultimately lost out to the Messerschmitt 109 in the competition for the next Luftwaffe fighter. Its cannon armament was hoped to be useful for tank-busting, and this prototype was sent to Spain to check out the usage of cannons in this role. It was flown mainly by Harro Harder and eventually was written off (in Spain) when its back broke after a heavy landing.
This old resin kit was well moulded, went together well and was an enjoyable build. This (long Out Of Production) kit is the only kit I know of the Heinkel 112A – RS Models kitted two different protypes. The kit included the Kondor Legion markings.
