    I have looked at many photographs of the Henschel Hs 123 and I have yet to identify a landing light. Did this A/C have one and if so where? Thanks.

    Hi mate,

    According to my info the Henschel Hs-123 wasn't equipped with the light.No wonder you cannot to find it and identify.

    Good info Wojtek! I've never noticed lights on Heinkel He 46s, 51s, etc either, (nor Tigermoths for that matter).

    You are right ,it seems that early German planes didn't have these lights mounted at all.

    Thank you for your replys. First time I have encountered this. One less thing to worry about when I build my 1/5 scale RC scale model.
