Heller's 1/72 Heinkel He-112B0/B1

January 1, 2022 · in Aviation · · 16 · 1.3K

's He-112B, kit No. 240 fist released in 1979.

This was a very enjoyable build. It went together with no issues. I used decals from an RS Model kit and insignias from the Heller kit. I found the details to be nice enough without adding anything to the build. All I wanted was a simple straight out of box build and this provided me with the pleasure to do so.

This was my last build for 2021, it was done 15 minutes before the clock struck 12.

Last shot is a side-by-side view of this Heller build compared to the vacuform Rareplane build.

    Thanks for sharing your building progress in the group build.
    A perfect closure of 2021.

    • Thank you John. I think a Romanian scheme can almost make any fighter plane look pretty nice. It work nicely on this build. My pleasure on the build progress.

  7. Another nice one Bob! I have this kit - looking at the two schemes you did, I'm not sure which way I'll go...!
