WOW318 Blohm & Voss P.211 LUFT 46 Project
Out of Stock
The Blohm and Voss P.211 was a descendant of the P.210 aircraft but designed in a more simplified format due to the scarcity of raw materials needed for war production and particularly for jet fighters towards the end of the war.
It was amongst a number of companies competing for the Volksjager project, others being Messerschmitt, Junkers and Arado.
The main criteria for the project was that the aircraft could reach a maximum speed of 750 kph and maintain aerial combat for at least 30 minutes.
The P.211 was equipped with an air intake passing under the cockpit and proceeding to the rear where the single engine was located. The pilot sat in a pressurized cockpit with a bubble canopy which provided excellent vision. The primary armament of the aircraft consisted of two 30 mm (1.18 in) MK 108 cannons arranged around the air intake.
It was also possible to carry a bomb load of 500 kg (1,100 lb), consisting of one SD or more SC 500 half-tonne bombs, one Bombentorpedo BT 200 bomb, five SD-series fragmentation bombs, SC-series general-purpose bombs, or a Rb 20/30 reconnaissance camera. Another advanced design idea allowed for more radical armament packages such as the Ruhrstahl X-4 wire-guided missile system.
Our 1/30 scale 1946 fighter is in the colours and markings of Heinrich Bar one of the greatest aerial aces of all times with over 200 kills to his name. The kills are faithfully replicated on the tail of his P.211. Amazingly Bar was never awarded the Knights Cross for this achievement, many blaming Reichsmarshall Goring who had a particular dislike for Bar and his lack of military bearing & discipline.
We have 5 x P.211 in the above markings and late war digital colour scheme.
Each model comes with free sample of FJ043 sentry figure as per the pictures.
