Henschel Hs 129B-1

by Aleksandar Sekularac


Henschel Hs 129B-1


 Hasegawa's 1/48 scale Hs 129B-2 is available online from Squadron.com




This is special edition of Hasegawa 1/48 scale Henschel Hs 129B-1 based in North Africa.



It is actually the only box to built proper B-1 type with early, round, air-intakes on the engine nacelles.





I really wanted to built a machine with the fancy desert scheme, and this kit allowed me to build it from the box. I did add some detail to the cockpit area, and I replaced the kit parts for engine exhausts with the brass tubing.



Pilot's harness is Eduard brass. The antenna wire is from invisible thread, and I made wing-tip lights from colored stretched clear sprue.



Painting and Markings


The instruction called for “Mahogany” mottles over Sandbraun, which I ignored and used standard RLM sequence: 78/79/80.



Otherwise the model is stock, and it is indeed a great kit!
