Product Description
The Heinkel He 162 Volksjäger ("People`s Fighter") was a single engined, jet powered fighter aircraft fielded by the Luftwaffe in WWII. It was the fastest of the first generation of Axis and Allied jets. Volksjäger was the RLM`s official name for the He 162. Other names given to the plane include Salamander, which was the codename of its construction program, and Spatz ("Sparrow") which was the name given to the plane by Heinkel. Much of the plane was made of wood, as metals were in very short supply at this time and typically allocated to current front line combat aircraft such as the Me 262 and Ar 234.

Heinkel had designed a neat, sporty-looking little aircraft, with a sleek, streamlined fuselage, a BMW 003 engine carried in a nacelle on the back of the aircraft, twin tailfins allowing the vertical tailplanes to clear the jet exhaust, a high-mounted straight wing with a shallow dihedral, an ejection seat for the pilot, and tricycle landing gear that retracted into the fuselage. The plane was in the air within an astoundingly short period of time: the design was chosen on 25 September 1944 and first flew on December 6, less than 90 days later. This was despite the fact that the factory making the plywood glue, Tego-Film, had been bombed and a replacement had to be quickly substituted.

By the time of the German unconditional surrender May 8, 1945, 120 He 162s had been delivered; a further 200 had been completed and were awaiting collection or flight-testing; about 600 more were in various stages of production.

The model is fully rigged for animation, and the product contains four highly detailed and textured resolutions of the model.

This model is a 3DMax model, saved in version 7 as a MAX file, and requires 3DMax or Gmax to open the model. It does not include any other formats to allow it to be opened in any other software. The model is rigged where appropriate, and mapped and textured.
