Desert Henschel
Posted by gregbale on Saturday, August 21, 2021 2:36 PM

The stork-like Henschel 126 as minted by Airfix in their old (1977 original release, according to Scalemates) 1/72 kit. OOB with no corrections (say, to the plank-thickness bomb fin ring), few additions other than tape harnesses and aerial lines from EZ-Line. I thought it looked good in the kit-suggested desert colors.

Not familiar with this airplane but wow it looks great.  Lots of interesting detail and really nice finish.  Well done!

Beautiful work!  The DAK scheme looks great on that plane.  Hard to believe that it's only

in 1/72 scale!

Very nicely done, great job on an old kit. This is a type i need to add to the stash, looking at getting one of the new brengun kits.

I am a Norfolk man and i glory in being so

Thanks, guys.

This was one of the Luftwaffe's 'workhorse' designs in the first years of the war, doing mainly observation duties with some light attack work thrown in.

Bad enough crewing these in the desert...but I can't imagine flying what was an essentially open-cockpit a/c on the frigid Eastern Front.Dead

Thanks, Johnny...so did I.

Say what you will quality-wise about the old kits like Frog, early-days Airfix and Heller...they sure covered a lot of ground. Lots of more unusual and sometimes even rare types, thrown in with all the Spitfires, 109s and Mustangs.
