    WW2 Royal Air Force 'Bakelite' Recognition Model of a German Heinkel HE III MK V. Sn 13246:1 - 13246:1

    During WW2, from late 1940, models were used extensively in aircraft recognition training programs. Models were of prime importance not only for their versatility in teaching but, as with enemy aircraft, they were often the only subjects ready available for the camera. Most of these models were made of wood, but also Bakelite and Buckram (a cloth like material mixed with a binder and pressed into a mould similar to a water-based version of ‘glass-fibre’ resin moulding) was being used. They were usually produced in 1/72 scale following the lead already set by the Sky Birds and Penguin models. Compared to the Penguins they were crude and less detailed, but that was satisfactory for identification purposes. They were usually painted in matt-black or matt-grey, an appropriate colour, as a real aircraft would appear in this manner when viewed from a distance. This is a Bakelite model of a German Heinkel HE III MK V and is finished in matt black. If there was an aircraft that had done more damage regarding strategic bombing during the Battle of Britain, it was the Heinkel He 111. The Heinkel He 111 was a German aircraft designed by Siegfried and Walter Günter at Heinkel Flugzeugwerke in 1934. Through development it was described as a "wolf in sheep's clothing" because the project masqueraded the machine as civilian transport, though from conception the Heinkel was intended to provide the nascent Luftwaffe with a fast medium bomber. Perhaps the best-recognised German bomber due to the distinctive, extensively glazed "greenhouse" nose of later versions, the Heinkel He 111 was the most numerous Luftwaffe bomber during the early stages of World War II. The bomber fared well until the Battle of Britain, when its weak defensive armament was exposed. The model would have been used by both RAF and the Royal Observer Corps as ground gun crews and observers also needed to positively identify enemy aircraft from a distance. Typically seen in films hanging in aircrew rooms and briefing rooms. These models didn't survive in great numbers. On the bottom it has a moulded "HE III MK V". It measures 13" wingspan. There is a small drilled hole through the centre of the fuselage which was to thread cord through to hang the model from the ceiling to replicate the model in flight. The price includes UK delivery.
