Heinkel He-112 Dutch Air Force

Heinkel He-112 Dutch Air Force



After the Luftwaffe chose the Messerschmitt Bf-109 as its standard fighter aircraft, Heinkel tried to fins export customers for its own He-112. One of the potential customers was the Dutch government which sought new fighters to strengthen the Dutch Air Force.



A He 112 B-1 arrived in Holland for testing on 12 July 1938 and quickly proved to be the best aircraft in the competition. A total of 36 aircraft were purchased and deliveries started in November 1938.
The aircraft delivered to the Dutch Air Force were powered by the Daimler Benz DB601 engine and had a three bladed propeller.



This is a Whif but it is not completely false. The KLu did consider buying the He-112 in 1938 but that came to nothing. They acquired the Koolhoven FK-58 instead.

Ah, Good show! It's sort of a missing link in the Dutch aviation history just before the start of WW2 as there was a trial of the Heinkel He-100 if I remember correctly.

Cheers,

Second that, it's looking great!  :thumbsup:

It's just missing a black border around the rudder?
Great idea, earmarked for a Heller He 112 which I have in my stash somewhere...
