Dornier Do 17 Airplane Models

Discover our collection of diecast models of the Dornier Do 17 - Authentically Detailed, Historically Significant, and Collectible Aircraft Models.

The Dornier Do 17, often referred to as the "Flying Pencil" due to its slender fuselage, was a light bomber used by the Luftwaffe during World War II. Developed in the early 1930s, it was one of Germany's primary bombers in the early stages of the war. The Do 17 was valued for its high speed and maneuverability, which allowed it to evade enemy fighters during daylight operations.

Key variants of the Do 17 include the Do 17Z (the most extensively used version with improved engines and armament) and the Do 17E/F (early models designed for reconnaissance and fast bombing). The aircraft saw significant action in various theaters, including the Battle of Britain and the Balkans Campaign. The Do 17's role in these critical early war campaigns and its distinctive design make it a compelling subject for military aviation historians and model collectors, especially those with an interest in WWII aviation.
