Fiesler Fi 156 Storch

Designed to meet a German military requirement for a liason and medical evacuation aircraft, the Fi 156 Storch, or "Stork" in English, was first flown in early 1937. The Storch's design is famous for its outstanding STOL (Short Take-Off and Landing) performance. A variety of lift-enhancing and aerodynamic control features coupled with long-travel landing gear enable the aircraft to take-off and land at very low airspeeds and in extremely short distances. The aircraft saw use throughout Europe and North Africa during WWII where its ability to operate from the smallest and most rugged locations proved invaluable to the German military.

Falcon Model's 1:72 scale Fi 156 Storch is a smartly constructed diecast model that correctly replicates the fragile, yet robust features of this aircraft. The ultra-thin fuselage is accurately recreated in near solid diecast metal and features a large multi-facetted cockpit canopy that provides an unobstructed view of the sparce interior. The long solid metal wings feature enhanced aerodynamic surfaces (slats) that run along the entire leading edge, plastic wing braces below and separately applied counter-weights on each aileron. The long legs of the landing gear are constructed in metal with supporting braces in plastic for scale replication.
