During WWII the Fieseler Fi156C was used at every front. It had the wonderful ability of taking off and landing over a short distance on both smooth and rough surfaces, and was often used for reconnaissance and liaison. This plane has been added to the 1/48 Aircraft Series as a milestone 100th Release. Additionally, famed military commanders such as Rommel frequently observed the front lines from the Fi156. A set of six figures including a pilot and officer is included allowing you to easily reproduce a variety of scenes such as Rommel giving instructions to a staff officer.
