Focke Wulf FW200V3/A-09 Condor “Immelman III”. Four engine passenger aircraft produced in 1937 under the direction of the famous aircraft designer Kurt Tank. Initially these aircraft were to be used by Germany's leading airline Lufthansa on prestigious transatlantic flights, but with the outbreak of World War II most were deployed on military missions. One FW 200V3/A-0 was transferred to the Luftwaffe testing facility in Rechlin, and later, after a series of special alterations, was presented to the leader of Nazi Germany, Adolf Hitler, as a personal VIP transport. Fw-200V3/A-0 was named 'Immelmann III' after the famous First World War ace Max Immelmann, and was used until 1944 on flights to the occupied territories. 1:144 scale plastic model kit from Roden, requires paint and glue.
