1/72 Huma Model Flettner Fl-282 - Bagged
Plastic Model Kit
Limited run, injection-molded plastic kit with full instructions and decals. NOTE: this kit has minor, 'professional' quality subassembly as follows: engine assembly (4 parts) is built. There is no other assembly. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. Successful German WWII helicopter design, and the first with counter-rotating intermeshing blades (in 1938). A further development of the Fl-265, flight tests showed that the Fl-282 was an excellent helicopter. It even flew from destroyers and minelayers while underway in the Baltic and Med. 1000 were ordered, but by the end of WWII only 24 had been built.
