The He 219 was arguably the Luftwaffe’s best nightfighter during WWII and was notable for an extraordinary debut mission in June 1943 when a prototype shot down five RAF Lancaster bombers. This kit depicts the final production variant, the A-7, which was equipped with DB 603G engines for improved high-altitude performance. Distinctive features such as the slim fuselage, greenhouse-style canopy, and tricycle landing gear are all accurately reproduced. The cockpit interior even features an integrated nose weight to ensure the model stays balanced when displayed. Two crew figures and three marking options are also included.
