Blohm & Voss BV 138 - Diorama of the Day

by Kasper Fischer

The BV 138 was introduced in limited numbers in 1941. After some modifications the main series (over 200 aircraft) was widely used by the coastal patrol and long range sea recconnaisance units across Europe, mostly from Norwegian and French bases. Because of its Jumo 205 diesel engines, the BV 138 was an economic aircraft and could even be refuelled by U-boats, a common practice during their North Atlantic patrols.

This fascinating diorama was created by Helmut Latoschinski and posted on Hyper Scale.
