Finest Hour He-115

 



As an extra model for the next stage of painting, I've added a single Tumbling Dice He-115 floatplane to use in the reconnaissance role and for minelaying missions, as these were both undertaken during the Battle of Britain by this aircraft. I did fancy building an He-59 for air sea rescue duties but the model has lots of struts that put me off, at least for the moment, so the He-115 will be a good stand in until I can steel myself to tackle the He-59. It's a really nice model too and captures the look of the actual aircraft very well.

  4. I do like the look of it but I suspect it will be an easy kill fr the RAF?
