This is a 1/72 Heinkel He111 Twin-Engined Bomber Aircraft from Italeri.
The Heinkel He111 Twin-Engined bomber was designed in response to a requirement
for a Luftwaffe high speed medium bomber. During its initial service in the
Spanish Civil War and the early Campaigns of WWII, the aircraft proved highly
successful, thanks to the poor quality of fighter opposition encountered. But
from the Battle of Britain onward, the He111 was Vulnerable when faced with
determined fighter opposition. Nonetheless, the He111 remained in service
throughout the war and served in a variety of roles.
