A Revell rebox of the old Matchbox He 70, this kit offers the option to build radial-engined version of the 'Blitz' used in Hungary. It was built for the yt/fb #recongroupbuild. Full build vid here; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-RWJmo96bNg Enjoy!
Hi, One of interesting military airplane which started as civil (passenger) was Heinkel He 70/170. As with all compromises - it was not really good in any role He 70 tok part in Spanish Civil War - as driven by V-engine, without spectacular sucesses. He 170 is an export version of He 70, equipped wuth radial engine, the French G-R 14 cyliders one. Hungary exploited a batch of He 170 in role of recce airplanes. May be noted, that Hungary start WWII before WWII (!) - with few days war with Slovakia in spring 1939. Then Hungary was forced by Germans to take part in April 1941 campaign against Yugoslavia (Hungarian prime minister even commited suicide it protest! ) and then they went to war against Soviet Union in June 1941. My Heinkel He 170A (Matchbox/Revell kit) is practicly OOB, presenting markings of 1st Independent Group for Long Range Recconaissance, based in Kecskemet 1939-40, perhaps she took part in short war with Slovakia in 1939.
