WOW321 Blohm and Voss P.211 ‘Horst Ademeit’ Luft 46 Project
4 in 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 model is in the markings of Horst Ademeit an Ace with over 160 kills to is name. Luftwaffe records reported Ademeit missing in 1944 but its only lately been revealed that he was actually being trained in secret along with other Luftwaffe Aces to fly Hitler’s secret weapons projects such as the P.211. Ademeit was killed in early 1946 whilst engaging British RAF Vampire jets over the English Channel, his body was never recovered.
