Finished - well enough to post for the Group Build. Whilst taking the photos, I noticed one or two areas that need touching up/tlc:










The kit certainly challenged my abilities, and I have learned from doing it, which is no bad thing.  :thumbsup:

That's one BIG model for sure, and it looks terrific too.  :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

A very good job.   :thumbsup: First time I see one of those built.

:o Those wings...

Yup, it's easy to see how Messerschmitt came up with a six engined one in a latter proposal.

You're talking about the 323 Gigant, right? That ugly thing... ;D IMHO, that is. But it was one impressive beast. :thumbsup:

Ok, didn't know about that one either... :rolleyes:  :thumbsup: the 264/6M... i'm not much of a bomber or transport aircraft guy but that one also looks very good, love the swept back wings on these two.
