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.
