Blohm & Voss BV 141 code NC+RH) Armament test
for both the A & B series aircraft.
Armed w/2x7.92mm MG 17 machine guns, firing forward, and 2x7.92mm MG 15s firing aft.
Under wing hard points could carry 4x50kg bombs.
Tests stopped in 1943 due to aircrafts low speed of 232mph,and Allied fighters.
Powered by 1xBMW 801 air-cooled radial engine of 1,560hp total production was about 38 aircraft. The BV141 was another one of aviation's oddities.

Most of the Tanks, Artillery, Ships, Aircraft
and other vehicles listed here at the ww2db, have been produced in plastic as model kits in 1/144, 1/72, 1/48, 1/32, 1/24 and 1/16th scale. the BV141 is in 1/72 scale. For myself
its both hobby and collection.

OOPS!... Forgot 1/35 scale this deals with
WWII Allied and Axis Tanks, w/other armored and soft-skinned vehicles.
This scale also deals with modern Tanks and Armored vehicles. The kits today, are highly detailed, I've seen this industry improve over the last thirty years. The older kits from the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s are what is called collectable, some older kits have been reissued, they are still a bargain by today's prices.
