The He-178 was the world's first aircraft to fly under jet power. The first practical jet engine, invented by Dr. Hans J. Pabst von Ohain, was running in September of 1937. The engine, the HE S1, was fueled with hydrogen and no had throttle control but produced 250 kg of thrust. Von Ohain began work on the He S2B which ran on gasoline and had throttle control. At the same time, Heinkel engineers began design of the worlds first jet airplane, the He-178. The airplane was single-engined with a flush riveted metal monocoque fuselage, wooden wings and retractable gear. Trials with the S3b engine in the airframe began on August 24th, 1939 and on August 27th, the airplane made the first jet flight. It made 12 flights in all before being retired to the Berlin Air Museum where it was destroyed in a bombing raid in 1943. Well molded kit with fine recessed panel lines, photoetched details, film instruments and injection molded canopy. Never started. Factory sealed bag with instructions.

This model came from the estate of a very active and particular early aircraft kit collector. It is like factory-new inside and has not been started. Complete with all parts, plans and decals (if originally included). Carl Goldberg was a gifted designer of model aircraft, and his career spanned the evolution of flying models. His designs and number of titles won in competition at the Nationals is legendary. His first competition was the 1928 Nationals, where he received honorable mention. By 1934 he won the indoor Nats and in 1935 he opened a Hobby Shop, among the first in the nation (the first one was probably opened by Cleveland Models Ed Packard). Awards came quickly. He wrote articles for Model Airplane News, and was Comet's top designer from 1939 till 1945. After Comet, he worked with Mike Schlesinger and Sid Axelrod on what eventually became Top-Flite Models. In 1955 he founded Carl Goldberg Models and released a still-popular line of scale, rubber, gas, glider and RC models. Needless to say, Goldberg's models are of the highest quality.
