I almost bought the 1/48 version a while back....

Just imagine if the designers had used individual engines, DB 603 or BMW 801, instead of the twinned powerplants--the Luftwaffe would have had a very good strategic bomber early in the war with room for improvement later!

Good work, my friend!


I always found it interesting that the design of a normal four engine version was started in 1941 but didn't get anywhere until the French finished it at the end of the war......

Good find! Hainkel, as well Junkers, was political victims in Germany. Just take a look on Heinkel early jets and what influence would have their introduce into operation serice.
