SH72192 Heinkel He-178 V-2
1:72 Scale
Injected Plastic

The He 178 V1 first jet aircraft was rebuilt to a He 178 V-2 version during the trials. The new plane was equipped with a bigger span wing and a retractable undercarriage. However, due to Luftwaffe£s command shortsighted decision not to continue with the development of weapons that could not assist in immediate victory in the war, the aircraft£s development was put to halt and the plane was handed over to the aviation museum in Berlin and was destroyed in 1943 during an Allied air raid.
The model consists of two grey plastic sprues, clear injected canopy and two resin undercarriage bay parts.
