Oxford Diecast Aviation Series Model

Heinkel He 162A-2 Volksjäger - II./JG 1, Luftwaffe, Leck, Germany, 1945

1:72 Scale.  Length: 5”.  Wingspan: 4”



The Heinkel He 162 was a German jet-powered fighter aircraft used by the Luftwaffe towards the end of World War II. Volksjäger was the official name for the government design program. Other names given to the aircraft include Salamander, the codename of its construction program, and Spatz (Sparrow), which was the name given by Heinkel. Designed and built quickly, the He 162 was made primarily of wood as metals were in short supply and prioritized for other aircraft.

First flown on December 6, 1944, the He 162 entered service with its first operational unit, I./JG 1, in February 1945. It was the fastest of the first generation of jet aircraft, but it arrived too late in the war and had too many performance issues to be effective against Allied air power. By the time of the German surrender on May 8 1945, 120 He 162s had been delivered and another 200 had been completed and were awaiting collection or flight-testing.


Oxford presents a range of value priced, high quality, die-cast model airplanes. Every model is crafted using specifications of the original aircraft.

This model of a He 162 Volksjager features:

  • Diecast metal construction with some plastic parts
  • Realistic panel lines
  • Detailed cockpit
  • Historically accurate markings
  • Display stand



  • Category: Oxford Diecast 1:72 Military Aircraft Models


    Not suitable for children under the age of 14
