This He 162 Volksjager was based on a Salamander given to the RAF by the Luftwaffe after they surrendered in May of 1945. Once captured they analyzed the aircraft for weaknesses and found that the rudder had a potential flaw. On November 9, 1945, part of the rudder and tailfin broke off during a demonstration flight of the Volksjager at RAE Farnborough that resulted in the death of the pilot Flt. Lt. R. A. Marks and a soldier aboard.

This 1/72 scale, die cast replica of a Heinkel He 162 Volksjager as it appeared in the RAF of Germany in 1945, features accurate markings and paint scheme, realistic panel lines and surface details, and a mid-flight display stand. 4" wingspan.
