    Kit: supermodel
    Scale: 1/72
    Accessories: none.

    it is the bv138 c1 1./SAgr.129 nuemral Wnr 311037, X4 + AH with brands, September 24, 1943, 10 am a small fishing boat "Queen of angels" sailed 15 miles from Cape of Machichaco, vizcaya, they saw a strange silhouette and approached viewed hydro to deriba your anchor cone at the nose I hechado, according approached saw the crosses on the fuselage and wings, distance and optimal to be heard they clamored to call the attention of the German crew, no nothing but unanswered, so continued the approach for addressing maritime and thus make the rescue, with the waves and the fragility of the vessel tried to tie the boat to the wing so protuberance not leave the boat next to the fuselage of the plane or skates, with the result that the pilot tube does not stand the gaff and the stake was broken wing. This made desist entering into the plane and took him to Port Bump after taking water anchor, Tedious navigation had for 8 hours with the headwind and the gigantic plane to tow the boat consisted of only 8.6 meters Sleeve and 16 horsepower, reaching the Portuguese port to the amazement of everyone who was there

    Immediately port authorities gave part and the report received was that it was admitted to the bed, led to daresena barakaldo where there remained until July 1 de1946 which was sold to Anglo-American commission basing the parts, spare parts, maintenance and most importantly almost unobtainable for ue what the plane would fly not serious fuel.

    the plane showed no major damage, just some small breakdowns in diesel for work without fuel engine, but after making two attempts to start it with the fuel oil campsa manufactured with similar characteristics to K1, fuel used by the aircraft not obtubo one good result, it came to Lieutenant Colonel enrique cardenas to make this decision.

    more than two curiosities

    the plane was abandoned on September 22, 1943, after having to ditch out of fuel back to France, to the base of the 3.Kü.FLGr.406 under the command of the Atlantik fliegerfürer in Biscarrosse in the Landes, in a mission of reconnaissance over the sea west of Ireland, at 8 pm to take the desicion tube landing not have anything to give water to their thirsty engines,
    a sea almost crushed, splashed down 20 miles archarön were quickly picked up by a boat from the kriegmariner, by darkness and heavy surf the plane could not be towed so he placed the anchor to reduce its deriba and be recovered with better weather, 38 hours after 70 miles the queen of angels as recovered.

    another curiosity this plane did not sell as happened with other internees in Spain planes this was yielded no more to the Anglo-American commission, without more, also includes up to 2 years after not the draft is presented to perform the air museum espoñol that was not operational until July 16, 1966 that was founded, all a shame we lost very many aircraft that today no other country would have and if they do it is because we bought them
