Titled 1945A

Description from the person that uploaded the video: 
QuoteIt's 1945, and the Allies are on the verge of winning World War II, when suddenly the Nazis unleash an arsenal of super weapons straight out of science fiction turning the tides in their favor. This presentation was done on a VERY small budget. All the tanks and vehicles (Willy's jeep, Stuart tank, Sherman tank, Nazi "Spider" tank) were done with 1:6 scale models, not CGI.

Found a bunch of sci-fi modelling videos by a guy called MangaMax07. Many of them are Warhammer 40,000 related but some are of Chris Foss/Martin Bower inspired spaceships. In the vids he talks about how he put them together and from what.

This is his channel home page: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7kb9XPjdYym_Zs2_46LEsw

These are some of the vids I particularly liked:

On You Tube I found a cartoon weird airliner, 4-engined like DC-947 or something...

Nicely done film , but it should be possible to take the " Spider tank " down by firing through the bay window sized observation port the nazi officer is stood at.

Looks like a Disney Planes sort of thing.

Another WHIF appears in the Turkish film 'Cicero' an excerpt from which appears at 00:08:57 - 00:09:14 in the linked film. It's a four engined He-111, which appears to be the filmmakers attempt to depict either B-17s or B-24s as they are wearing pre-WWII USAAF markings.

That's the latest version of the true story of Elyesa Bazna who spied for the Germans while working at the British Embassy in Ankara.

Previous versions were 5 Fingers, 1952 starring James Mason and Operation Cicero, 1956 starring Ricardo Montalban, which was an episode of the 20th Century Fox Hour anthology series.

I know, I did manage to find the full film on YouTube (For obvious reasons I'm not linking to it.) The He-111/B-17 hybrids appear around the 48min, 30second mark in a 15 second sequence. The odd thing is the same film also has presentable CGI Ju-87s.

There is some point in WW ll when the Bulgarians ask the Germans to bomb lstanbul. Possibly after Americans bomb Sofia. Where they should have aimed for the Jewish quarters. But naturally miss. Do not rush to conclusions, accuracy was a "thing" in those days. If they could have hit the Jewish quarters there wouldn't be so much damage and loss of life. Because the area was emptied of people. Some were lost in the maze of paperwork, really unfortunate were lost to Germans. Should have come at the moment where the Allies were trying to pressure the exports from this country to Germany. With what the country goes through what you see is probably some unnamed part the West that starts wars. With their provocative actions and so on... People believe in such things...
