Fieseler Storch (1/72 Scale) Aircraft Model Kit

Sorry, this item is out of stock


One of the great Luftwaffe aircraft of the Second World War, the ungainly looking Fieseler Storch may not have commanded the same respect as the fast and agile Messerschmitt Bf 109 fighter, yet its low speed handling and short field performance was without equal. Entering Luftwaffe service in 1937, the Storch performed the vital roles of Army cooperation, liaison and reconnaissance, meaning the aircraft was never too far away from the front lines and didn't always need to be flown there. Designed to allow the high mounted wings to fold back, the Storch could either be loaded on a train, or simply towed behind a suitable vehicle. The high wing and unobstructed cockpit meant that the pilot had an unrivalled view of the battlefield situation below and the aircraft's low speed made it extremely difficult for opposition fighters to shoot it down.
