I added a fair amount of down thrust and right thrust to the prop. This is based on experience with other similar models.

Like the original, the sub wing is quite strong (relatively). It supports the gear and keeps the top wing from bending.

The Henschel came in at 10.4 grams, without rubber.

The paint scheme is that of the Spanish Air Force, circa 1942.

The Henschel, without a prop. The plastic Peck prop I was going to use added too much nose weight. I had to build a light balsa prop.

The flying surfaces are covered with brown domestic tissue that was pre-shrunk on a frame several times. Pre-shrinking is essential for the very flimsy tail and wings. I air brushed the tissue, while still on the frame, again to prevent shrinking.

The Henschel's decals were printed onto domestic white tissue, using a laser printer. The green background colour comes from the card stock that I used as a backing to hold the tissue as it goes through the printer.
