Airfix 1:72 Heinkel He III H-6 - Model Kit

Arguably the most effective version of the He III series and certainly the
one that was built in most numbers, the Heinkel He III 'H' attempted to
address some of the shortcomings of the earlier models and upgrade the
performance of this widely used aircraft. Although German ministers thought that
they were being clever in classifying the original He IIIs as airliners, the
design parameters that had to be adhered to, in order to satisfy this deception,
dictated that the bomb carrying capabilities of Luftwaffe aircraft was woefully
inadequate. In actual fact, the aircraft was capable of carrying more bombs than
its weapons bay could hold.

Also, the Battle of Britain clearly illustrated that whilst the Heinkel could
not really be described as being obsolete, it was seriously out-dated in terms
of manoeuvrability and defensive firepower and most of the Allied fighters of
the day were capable of shooting it down. Unfortunately, without the benefit of
a suitable replacement aircraft, the Heinkel would have to soldier on and
despite beginning to show its age, was still in production right up until the
final few months of the war.
