1/72 72004 Pavla Henschel Hs-129A
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: VG+
Limited issue kit with injection molded parts, film instruments and photoetched details. Has decals for two aircraft. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. The Henschel 129A was the result of an RLM request for a ground attack aircraft capable of attacking armor. This was the result of Spanish Civil War experience. Construction began in October of 1938 and the aircraft first flew on May 20, 1939. The flying characteristics were less than satisfactory. Several aircraft of the pre-production batch did see service in France in a training unit. The "A" variant was never mass produced as the more powerful and docile Hs-129B was put into production.
