The Airfix 1/72 Heinkel He 111H-6 Motörhead “Bomber” Special Edition from the plastic aircraft model kits range accurately recreates the real life World War Two bomber aircraft.
Motörhead, the iconic heavy-metal band’s striking album artwork for their 1979 ‘Bomber’ was carefully created by illustrator Adrian Chesterman. Lemmy, “Fast” Eddie Clark and Phil “Philthy Animal” Taylor are shown inside the cockpit of a Heinkel in the Blitz. Lemmy, himself a collector of WWII memorabilia, insisted the plane be German. Chesterman suggested the Heinkel.
The album was released on October 27th 1979, reaching number 12 on the UK charts.
To mark the 40th Anniversary, Airfix is pleased to offer a version of its latest Heinkel with the “Bomber” markings included, and with the special Anniversary box lid.
