Explore our collection of diecast models of the Henschel Hs 123 - Expertly Crafted, Historically Notable, and Collectible Airplane Models.

The Henschel Hs 123 was a German single-engine, biplane dive bomber used during World War II. Despite its relatively outdated design even at the time of its introduction in the mid-1930s, the Hs 123 proved to be highly effective and resilient in the close air support role. It was particularly noted for its excellent maneuverability, sturdiness, and ease of maintenance.

Operated primarily on the Eastern Front and in the Mediterranean theater, the Hs 123 was effective in ground-attack missions, supporting troops with its dive-bombing and strafing capabilities. Even as more modern aircraft were introduced, the Hs 123 remained in service due to its reliability and effectiveness in adverse conditions. Its role in the early years of the war and its reputation as a rugged and dependable dive bomber make it a fascinating subject for military aviation historians and model collectors, especially those interested in early WWII aircraft and ground-attack tactics.
