Henschel Hs 126 Aircraft Models

Explore our collection of diecast models of the Henschel Hs 126 - Precision Crafted, Historically Notable, and Collectible Airplane Models.

The Henschel Hs 126 was a German two-seat reconnaissance and observation aircraft used during World War II. Developed in the late 1930s, it was designed to replace the Heinkel He 46. The Hs 126 was characterized by its high-wing, mixed-construction design, and was well-regarded for its excellent low-speed handling and short takeoff and landing capabilities, essential for reconnaissance and observation missions.

Its key operational role was in the Luftwaffe's reconnaissance units, providing critical intelligence and target spotting. Despite being replaced later in the war by more advanced aircraft, the Hs 126 saw extensive use, particularly in the early war years on both the Eastern and Western Fronts. The aircraft's role in military reconnaissance missions and its operational history in diverse terrains and battle conditions make it a fascinating subject for military aviation historians and model collectors, especially those interested in the early stages of aerial reconnaissance and observation during WWII.
