Anyone know where I might find some HE 111 plans. I plan to scratch build the bird with a vacuum formed fuse and may kit them if there's enough interest.

I planning a 50 ish span that can be flown either with brushless or brushed.

Don't worry. I'm not new to this. I have a couple glass kits on the market ( ME P. 1101 and the TA-183 fro 90 mm fans) and 22 years flying. That ends that. LOL!

Thanks for the help guys. Time to take a break from Sub kits and get something in the air again!

Thanks Chellie!!

Looks like the H-2 model will be best. Or do you guys have a favorite?

Thanks again for the help!

How 'bout that... Decades ago, there was a guy in Calif. who kitted a P38, vac-formed; had I been on the other side of the border, I would have bought one. Seems to me it was for the slope.

Sure sounds like an interesting project, lots of success to you!

Thanks a bunch. It will be awhile as I have a CGI project to finish but I wanted to start getting familiar with the bird in my spare time.

Hi Steve,
If you are still looking for plans, here is a link to modelair-tech which has a set just your size. Good luck with your project. John.

Steve I've been wanting to build an HE111 forever. There's one that is often featured in British Flying Scale, if you've seen that one. Every time I see it, I'm ready to start the scratch build.:D
Not many plans for this plane. Kinda like the Republic Seabee I have going on, in the Seaplanes forum. Get some good views, blow 'em up, and have at it. There is an available plan that is the same size as my build, but I'm not into semi-hacked-scale, so as the saying goes, if you want it done right, do it yourself.

Guys thanks very much for the help here it's much appreciated.

Bill I hear you loud a clear and have been down this path many times before but mostly early WW2 German jets. It will be a pleasure to build something with props again!

Yeah, I finally got off my EDF addiction.:eek: The cool factor grabs you for a while, and then the Luft stuff can really keep you in there, but after a while, you can only build so many EDF after EDF...and so on.
Nice to go to a prop change. I think I built around 5 EDFs in a row, with only a small prop project or 2, for a break. After a while, the EDFs all seem to blend together, and its a welcome change.

How about an He-111 A model

Hi Steve,

My friend and I scratch built one each and the plans with canopy mouldings went to Traplet, but they were 100" wingspan so probably a bit big?

Both still flying. Mine used for the development of scale sound and both launch V1 bombs, also radio controlled with ducted fans in the tailpipes.

Bill I hear you man. I'm there too.

John. Fantastic! You should post more on them. Thanks for sharing and the tip. Plans can be scaled dwon.

thanks so much guys, don't know about a kit this first one is just for me although there will be molds for everything.

Hi Steve,
Try this, it has the short clip of the HE111 flying past in mid winter with the sound. http://www.putfile.com/jran

The HE111 has 2 x AXI 4130/16 with 15"x10" APCe props and 2x14 Nicad 2.4ah cells and it flies like a trainer. Weight 15 lbs plus about one for the V1.

Sounds like a big plane from the specs. Pretty light also for a large twin with 4130's and NiCds. I want one!:D
I'm really thinking this will have to be my next scratch build. It almost was the one that I'm working on now.

Hi John!
Are you John Ranson, author of Traplet plan? Where I can find any more info on builds from your plan? One russian friend looking for good He111 design to build.

Is VanVan still functioning? Anybody bought this kit from them?

That is the first I've heard of the kit. May be difficult to find information.

I've always wanted to build an HE111 also. It may not be what you want, but I would look at Smokin' Beaver's HE111 on RCG, that was made from a GWS DC3. It really looks good, and I may likely do that also, if I build one.

There are 3-view drawings with cross sections on the web, which could be used for a scratch build. I saved one a while back. The fuse shape would not be difficult for a scratch build. I also like the scratch build idea, as you can make your own mold for the nose glass. Trust me, you will be making a few replacements. :Q If you have your own mold, then you can make a few spares. My AR234 has nose glass number 5 or 6 on it. :eek:

Hi!
Nice! 3 -views you posted are from russian magazine :) seems I have it in paper. Cool idea to use C-47, their wings look similarly shaped.
Arado is great plane. I would recommend you to try it in flight simulator (Aces High), incredible feelings :)
thanks,
Kostya

Hi Kostya, Yes that's me. You should be able to get the plans and the original article from the Traplet scale magazine archives. Ask for Tony Vangeffen, he should be able to find it. They have the moulds for the complex front canopy etc.

I re-engined mine with AXI 4130/16 motors 45A ESCs and powered by 4s Lipos. It would fly for 15 minutes on this setup. A lovely gentle flier. Huge C of G change when dropping V1 but it made no difference to the benign flying characteristics.

I bought some off ebay, but they are so-so... based on old power systems too. I'd be interested in a 1/13 scale... already build fully scale gear for it ;)

Chuck Graves of vanvan says in e-mail that plans are still available. contact him at warbirdcolors@yahoo.com (warbirdcolors@yahoo.com)

A chap in our neighbouring club built one of these in electric with sound system installed too. I believe built from plans from the RCME service. He's a talented builder as is evident by the other vids too.

I strongly recommend designing to 100" to get that moment back there where it is not going to be such an issue. Unless
you get the sq inches up its tuff to justify the wing loading just to balance these. They suffer from weight lifter syndrome.
All body, no neck....nose moment ;^)

100" w/s will not weigh much if you design it properly without mass designing it. There are plenty of people who have
CAD'd the formers over the years so that will permit you to work this up quickly.

The glass up front is a work of art when done properly. I am amidst a larger design of it though I have the Trapplet
components for an electric one I was considering hot wiring. I am making everything in the cockpit out of brass to
negate useless ballast.

There is a kit available: Heinkel He111 H-6 (http://www.vanvan.us/he111.htm)WWII German Twin Engine 89" w/s
http://www.scaleaero.com/_derived/CASA1.htm_txt_casa2111.gif

http://www.scaleaero.com/CASA1.htm (http://www.scaleaero.com/CASA1.htm)

You can use this photo documentation for your He or CA, which ever you build. The only flying examples of the
airframe are CASA (Spanish) license built He-111e built by Fraco in Spain. Yes, that's a right side door. There
werew five CASA 2111e's flown in the Battle Of Brittain movie, two were brought to the States. This one was a
CAF airframe, the second is in Dallas and to my knowledge has yet to be flown after a complete rebuild.

...and a toilet in the rear. Note the luve has a rather excessively re-enforced frame.

http://www.scaleaero.com/pottydor.jpg

This plane crashed into a school bus service center in Wyoming, killing both pilot and co-pilot. This
paint scheme is the original scheme from the Battle Of Brittain movie it was redone painted in desert
tan just prior to its crash. Gotta love the weathered paint (about 30 yrs old when photographed).

The "Office"...more than slightly modernized... :^)

Cool. I saw the kit, but looks like I will scratch at some point. Graupner is closest so far. I'm hoping FSK or one of the Chinese will do eventually. I went to Schlessheim and check out their CASA last september.
I've already built fully working gear for it too...
