Roden 1/144 Heinkel He 111Z-1 Zwilling ROD346

 

Heinkel He 111Z-1 Zwilling Large German special purpose aircraft of the Second World War designed to tow heavy gliders.

It was based on the He 111H front-line bomber, two of which were combined in one aircraft with a common wing centre-plane and an additional fifth engine to improve flight performance, primarily enabling the aircraft to haul heavy gliders.

Twelve He 111Zs were built in 1941-1942, which were delivered to a special squadron.

Their main purpose was the rapid air transport of troops or large volumes of cargo.

Aircraft of this type took part in transporting supplies to the Stalingrad region; in the evacuation of personnel from Crimea; and later they had to operate on the Western Front.

By the end of the war, there were only four surviving He 111Zs.

Even at this time the idea of using them as long-range bombers was considered, but these intentions were never realised in the rapidly deteriorating war situation.

Markings for 2 aircraft:
(1) He 111Z DG+DY, Eastern Front, Battle for Stalingrad, 1942-43;
(2) He 111Z TH+ZI, Eastern Front, Crimea, Spring 1943.
