This is a set of SIX Heinkel HE 5 (S5A)aircraft
Please notethat the individual aircraft are supplied "caged" together to avoid loss and damage - simply cut the cage away to realease the models using small sidecutter pliers or snips. Once the cage is removed there are NO sprues to cut away and clean up.
The HE 5, nicknamed the "Hansa", first flew in 1926 and was operated by the German, Swedish and Soviet Union air forces.
This is the Swedish S5A version of which 12 were built under licence by Svenska Aero and another 10 were built by the Swedish Air Force itself.
Armament consisted of one fixed, forward firing Browning machine gun and one trainable, rearward-firing on a ring mount. It could carry 160kg of bombs on racks beneath the fuselage.
Two S5As took part in the 1928 international rescue effort to save the survivors from the crash of the airship Italia.
