Armour Collection B11E311 Limited Edition German Junkers F-13 Transport - Deutsche Post, Germany, 1930 (1:48 Scale) "Guns before butter. Guns will make us powerful; butter will only make us fat."
- Reichsmarschall Hermann Goering, Head of the German Luftwaffe

The Junkers F.13 (also known as the F-13, and developed under an engineering designation of J 13), was an all-metal German transport aircraft that first flew on June 25th, 1919. It was the world's first all-light metal civilian plane, which was widely exported to many countries. Within Germany, the F-13 flew with a Junkers airline and later Lufthansa after a corporate merger. It saw active service until the 1940s. About 330 were built with many variants including different engines and a seaplane variant.

This particular limited edition 1:48 scale Junkers F-13 single-engine transport was flown by the Deutsche Post to deliver mail across Germany during the 1920s and 30s. Only 450 pieces produced. Sold Out!

Historical Account: "Air Mail" - In the immediate post-war era, Junkers used their J8 layout as the basis for the F-13, first flown on June 25th, 1919, and certified airworthy in July of the same year. This four passenger monoplane was the world's first all-metal airliner. Of note, in addition to significant European sales, some twenty-five of these airplanes were delivered to North American customers under the Junkers-Larsen affiliate and were used primarily as airmail planes.
