1/48 Heinkel He162 A-2 “Salamander”
（Length: 205mm Image shows assembled and painted model kit）
【 The Luftwaffe's Last Hope 】 As
the situation became more desperate for the German forces near the end
of WWII, a call was made for a new inexpensive jet fighter that would be
simple to produce and fly. In the amazingly short span of 3 months from
drawing board to first flight of the prototype, Heinkel produced the
small, sporty-looking He162. The lightweight fighter featured mainly
wooden construction and was powered by a BMW003 turbojet, which made it
the fastest jet fighter of WWII with its 838km/h top speed. Reaching
combat units in late March 1945, the little fighter managed to record
some combat successes despite the acute fuel and parts shortage.
