The HS-129 achieved the distinction of being the only WW II aircraft, and one of the few in history, specifically designed for the anti-armor role. The  PaK-40 could penetrate 133mm of armor at a range of 1000 meters and  carried 26 rounds.  This aircraft was from unit 14 (Pz)/Sch.G9.

THE MODEL
The fit throughout was excellent. The fuselage halves went together with no problem, as did the wings.

I hope you enjoy these photos.
