Modelimex have released pics of Planet Models' new 1:48 resin kit of the Heinkel He 110V-8.
In the late 1930s, Heinkel and Messerschmitt continued their rivalry in the fighter stakes over into the record-breaking arena, with the He 100 V-8 establishing a new absolute world speed record of 463.92 mph (746.606 kph) on March 30 1939.

News of the new record forced the abandonment of the "Speed Spitfire" which was predicted to be around 50 mph slower, but Heinkel's triumph was to last just 27 days before Messerschmitt snatched the record from them with their Me 209 V1 which reached 469.22 mph (755.138 kph) - a speed that was to remain unbroken by a piston-engined aircraft for 30 years.

Planet Models' kit of the He 100 V-8 features finely cast resin parts, white metal undercarriage, vacuformed canopy and full decals.

The kit will be available at Modelimex price: 46.50
