This iconic German bomber stalked the skies of the Atlantic and the Mediterranean during WWII
Win a model kit of this iconic bomber
Although mostly associated with the lethal bombing campaigns over mainland Europe and Britain, the Heinkel He 111 played a lesser known role in the Battle of the Atlantic. Armed with torpedoes, the H-6 variant of this formidable bomber hunted down Allied shipping, causing devastation that threatened to cut the UK’S precious lifeline to the USA. Among its substantial fleet of high-quality and supremely accurate kits, iconic modelling producer Airfix has recreated the Heinkel He 111 H-6 in stunning 1:72. Complete with external weapons hard points, a 1,000-kilogram (2,205-pound) bomb and torpedoes, the kit provides everything you need to build the fully equipped bomber as it would have appeared over the Atlantic skies.
