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”).
