About this creation
About this MOC...
Well i took apart my ju-88 and built this,the Heinkel He-111. Actually this is the plane that i origanally wanted to build when i did the ju-88,but i built the ju-88 instead because i thought the He-111 would be to harder to build wich it was,but i did it!!! and i think the overall look isnt that bad. Its actually more to scale then the ju-88........and personally i think it looks alot cooler,i especially like the cool shaped wings....well i hope you like this new moc that i have built and if you can please review or rate thanks....and yes it has retracatble landing gear.
History of the Hienkel He-111
In the early 1930s Ernst Heinkel decided to build the world's fastest passenger plane, a lofty goal met with more than a little skepticism by the German aircraft industry and its newly evolving political leadership. Heinkel entrusted the development to the Günter brothers, fairly new to the company and untested.
The aircraft was superior to the already fast Lockheed 9 Orion that their design was competing against. The first example of their soon-to-be-famous Heinkel He 70 Blitz (“Lightning”) rolled off the line in 1932 and immediately started breaking records. In its normal four passenger version its speed almost reach 200 mph (320 km/h), even though it was powered by only a single 600 hp (447 kW) BMW V1 engine. The elliptical wing, which the Günther brothers had already used in the Bäumer Sausewind sports plane before they joined Heinkel, became a feature in many subsequent designs the brothers developed.
The design immediately garnered the interest of the Luftwaffe, which was looking for medium bombers for military service.
The future Heinkel He 111 was a more powerful twin-engine version of the Blitz, producing an aircraft that had many of the Blitz's features – including its elliptical inverted gull wing, small rounded control surfaces, and BMW engines. With location of the engines the only notable change in appearance, the new He 111 design was often called the Doppel-Blitz (“Double Lightning”).
(I would like to give credit to wikipedia.com because thats were i got the information about the He-111)
the best awsome this is briliant creation! i live how do you use these sticks on the nose for cockpit but real henkel he 111 have 3 blades propeler and make smaler gears mabye you can use gears from some car not jeep i faworited so... cep going!!!!!
Hahaha...wow...I log in to mocpages and on the front page I see my He-111 Moc! lol. Then I look and see it has almost 10,000 visitors and 53 comments =D lol. But really guys im so glad you like it and all my mocs. Thanks for all the great comments and support, i really really appreciate. Thank you-----David

hey can you make a B-25 or some kind on bomber?
hey right know im building mostly fighters although i am working on a huge bomber that was used during the cold war...though i do plan on building a ww2 a-20 havoc bomber at some point in the near future.....
What I like the most about your He-111 is of course the cockpit. It's really hard to build the German war birds' "green-house-cockpits". You might need to make the wings a bit longer. Nevertheless, great job.
Really Great!! is a very accurate model, and i like the first photo, looks like that old Pics we found in books about WW2. Can you check my F-15? you are a plane master, i fell honored to be reviwed by you! Bruno
Your Heinkel 111 is so good-looking, you´re really talented in building aircraft! What are your thoughts on building two planes that I don´t think anyone else has built yet in minifig-scale? > The Northrop B-2 "Spirit", and the SR-71 "Blackbird" you built in a smaller scale? I´d love to try, but don´t really have enough parts for them - especially cause I want to keep my other planes for the time being... Steffen
Great Model! These were powerfull enough that Germany got to the point where all they had to do was fly one of these over a Polish town or city and march soldiers into it and it surrendered. Pretty powerfull.
Wow this also really good. I love lego planes exspeacly bombers of WWII. But now i havnt got much parts to build another plane but i made some tanks into the LDD. Ibuy now one of them i hope youll like it also =)
Great job! The way you sepia-ed (is that even a word?) the first pic had me going that it was your reference photo. Then I noticed the guys were a little overly chubby. Excellent work. The only things I can think of to toss in there are I think it's a little on the small side, and like others pointed out, the prop blades. Look very closely on Jesse Drover's P-38 Lightning and you should be able to see how he did it. If not, I can send over some pics. Nice piece of work anyhow. Especially the swastikas... -- -- Michael
I think you did a great job on a very difficult model. The nose & cockpit section of the He 111 is probably one of the hardest details to pull off. Good work. The props can be easily updated to "3 blade" types with a technic piece and few 1x4 tiles. Double check the tail wing, looks like you might need a few more pieces there as well. Overall great job. Keep building!
Honestly, I can't believe anyone who would rate this MOC less than a 5. It is truly an outstanding model with excellent detail. I like the color and the decals that add a great deal to the overall look. I just wish Lego would make historic planes minifig scale like this one. Top notch!
WOW! Very nice. You picked a very hard plane to build and you did a great job on it. I think the wings are much to stubby and it does only have three blades on each prop. It is still amazing and I can't believe how you made the front wind screen. I would love to have about twenty of these for my army.
Not bad at all ... but the propeller is wrong (the real He-111 has a 3 blades propeller), the wheels are too big also. You should have a look at the other Lego He-111 available on the net (yours is similar but less accurate). With a few modifications, it would worth 5 stars. PS:
Try to build a retractable landing gear also.
This is an awesome replication of a Heinkel. And the swastika on the tail fin doesn't look too bad at all. And it is important to put it on. If he's put all the effort in to replicate the design why should the insignia be neglected? Anyway great work. keep it up.
