Flettner Fl-282 WWII Helicopter
In Germany (1942), Anton Flettner developed a series of helicopters using counter-rotating intermeshing rotors designed as sub spotters there were to be be used on ships. This two seat Fl 282 Kolibri ("Humming Bird") became the first helicopter anywhere to enter operational military service & was the most advanced helicopter developed during WWII. The German air force and navy ordered production of 1,000 Flets, but only about 30 survived Allied bombing long enough to be completed. Two sizes plus a BW version. This is one INCREDIBLE model!!!!

I just finished this one in regular size - It was great. I scratch-built the fwd landing gear and detailed the controlstick/linkage and added fuel lines. I have started so many projects from FG - but plan on biulding the large version soon. I would love to see the Fa-223 - very interesting helo. :D
