1/48 Fieseler Fi156C Storch (Tamiya)
Tamiya Model Kit
Stock: Very Low
Warning! This model kit allows you to create the “base” of a dustified unit. It wasn’t produced by Dust Studio and can be more complicated or different quality than you are used to. It can only be a base to more “dustification” with weapon spruces and model elements from the game itself, or will create a separate unit usable in the game. It’s made in 1/48 which is the scale used on all Dust 1947 models.
In 1935, the RLM (Reichsluftfahrtministerium, Reich Aviation Ministry) invited several aviation companies to submit design proposals that would compete for the production contract for a new Luftwaffe aircraft design suitable for liaison, army co-operation (today called forward air control), and medical evacuation. This resulted in the Messerschmitt Bf 163 and Siebel Si 201 competing against the Fieseler firm’s entry. Conceived by chief designer Reinhold Mewes and technical director Erich Bachem, Fieseler’s design had a far better short take off and landing (“STOL“) performance. A fixed slat ran along the entire length of the leading edge of the long wings, while a hinged and slotted set of control surfaces ran along the entire length of trailing edge. This was inspired by earlier 1930s Junkers Doppelflügel, “double-wing” aircraft wing control surface design concepts. For the Fi 156, this setup along each wing panel’s trailing edge was split nearly 50/50 between the inboard-located flaps and outboard-located ailerons, which, in turn, included trim tab devices over half of each aileron’s trailing edge length.
This aircraft is a must have for any Axis players wanting to re-activate their precious planes! Additional radio equipment mounted inside allows you to once more fully activate one of your flying units. Additionally the jammer makes enemy radio communication much much harder.
In this set you will find a classic scale model set, recommended for experienced modelers. As the set is not a Dust Studio product the card for it can be found in Axid Dust 1947 card set or our Dust Enslist application.
