Dragon DR5576. Heinkel HE162A-2 Salamander w/Engine, 1:48 Scale
DR5576 - Dragon
The Heinkel He 162 Volksjäger (German, "People's Fighter"), the name of a project of the Emergency Fighter Program design competition, was a German single-engine, jet-powered fighter aircraft fielded by the Luftwaffe in World War II. It was designed and built quickly and made primarily of wood as metals were in very short supply and prioritised for other aircraft. Volksjäger was the Reich Air Ministry's official name for the government design program competition won by the He 162 design. Other names given to the plane include Salamander, which was the codename of its construction program, and Spatz ("Sparrow"), which was the name given to the plane by Heinkel.
On this model, the engine-cowling cover is movable, thus permitting the fighter’s BMW 003E jet engine to be exposed in all its glorious detail should modellers choose to portray the He162D engine cowling open. Additionally, there is a complete set of photo-etched components for items such as a cockpit instrument panel and seatbelt for the pilot. The Trimaster name is synonymous with exclusive and quality kits and, thanks to Dragon, some of its most popular items such as this jet-powered Salamander are available again.
Glue and paint are required but are not included.
