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!

It was done later, He 277, this machine was used post war in France

My mistake- He 274, not 277  :-red and kit is progress up to level of merged fuselage half's

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.

This is new info for me, is there any photo evidence which show that? I have just seen with ine central mounted bomb, not sure I seen with additional two under wings.
Title: Re: Heinkel He 177 Greif Revell 1/72
Post by: Second Air Force on December 02, 2018, 12:13:55 PM
I have some info on the wing bombs......somewhere! It may be a photo or it may be a line drawing, I cannot remember. I'll try to find it.
Title: Re: Heinkel He 177 Greif Revell 1/72
Post by: No.1 on December 02, 2018, 01:41:00 PM
Photo with attached three flying bombs would be welcome

good progress mate, and some very interesting and useful infos here, looking forward to see this three bombs evidence
Title: Re: Heinkel He 177 Greif Revell 1/72
Post by: No.1 on December 02, 2018, 10:24:41 PM
Solution founded- this will be sample machine I will go to do and it have only wing mounted pylon for flying bombs. So only two in this case ;)

Post by: No.1 on December 02, 2018, 10:53:56 PM
And watch this, from 2:00 minute, I think we have case of even four flying bombs...

Hello :-salut

At 2:15 this photo is a fake; it's the plane captured by the French at Toulouse and then delivered to the RAE. The photo has been retouched and the Vkz is inaccurate. The dark color on the rudder is the overpainting of the French three colors : blue, white and red.
RAF markings :
Orinal markings :

French markings with the tri-colored rudder :
(https://i62.servimg.com/u/f62/10/07/63/16/heinke11.jpg) (https://servimg.com/view/10076316/13592)

British markings with the overpainted rudder :

And, finally, the fake German markings and addition of defensive armament and flying bombs..;

Hello mate :-salut

Look carefully at the angle of the landing gear legs ; it seems that Revell is not entirely accurate on this point.
