Heinkel He 111 P-4
In early 1934, Technisches Amt, together with Deutsche Lufthansa, worked out the requirements for a twin-engined airplane that could act as a bomber, as well as a communication aircraft. In the military version, the aircraft was to reach a speed of 350 km/h, have a 1000 kg load capacity, a range of at least 1000 km and a crew of four people. In the civilian version, the plane was prepared to take 10 passengers. The terms of the order were sent to Heinkel and Junkers (they built the Junkers Ju-86 aircraft). Five prototypes were ordered, the second and the fourth were to be the models of the civilian version while the remaining ones were military planes. Brothers Siegfried and Walter Günter were responsible for construction work in Ernst Heinkel Flugzeugwerke A.G.
The first prototype He-111a was checked on February, 24th 1935. The aircraft had no important defects and showed very good fighting characteristics. It was equipped with BMW VI 6.0 Z engines with 485 kW (660 hp).
The block model of the Heinkel from COBI features an easy-to-open pilot’s cockpit, rotating flaps and propellers and retractable landing gear.
