Ok guys here is a nother one. It isn't my best one but It looks wicked.
It's the 1/48 Revell Do 217 converted into a what if Nightfighter.
The outerwings came from a Costers Aero Enterprise set for the 217 K/M version.
They were not needed so I made good use of them. The extra props were from a old Do 335 (the pusher props) and the engines were spares from a Ju 88.
The model is seen as it was not yet finished. The last picture is the only one I have when it was finished and standing in Telford.

Cheers Arnold :cheers:

 Nicely done! The Njg version of the 217 series is a long-time favorite, and this is an interesting
extrapolation. Dornier certainly had  experience with this format, via the Do 26 flying boat.

Well done.  An excellent exercise in the quest for more power and more speed.

We don't just embrace insanity here.  We feel it up, french kiss it and then buy it a drink.

If your attending Telford this year, make your self known at the SIG stand. You will be made very welcome by the gang. Feel free to bring a few models along if you wish :)
I always hope for the best.
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Very well done, and very beautiful (and original); congratulations once more. In the nose appears a centimetric radar, isn´t it?. Very well done this innovation.



Stunning model--this is what Whiffing is all about.

Yes I remember that one, wanted to speak to the builder, but at the time you weren't around. Like OGL says, pitch-up at the SIG stand anytime, you'll be very welcome.

Confuscious (maybe)


yes - niiiiccceee - I was going to do this configuration on a Ju88 - yours is a great inspiration
cheers Bernie


Thanxs guys.

I thought that I was a nutball with this one. I some times have the strangest thoughts in my head and then I have to build it. But after staying 10 years in the closet I finaly did come out. Hehehehehe

Martin/Ian, I will be atending in Telford. I will get to the what if stand there. I don't know if I will be taking some models with me for your stand. There will be a What if Model for the competition. It's In its fase to be getting some paint and it's again an English aeroplane like last year (that was the Whirlwind).

Do not condemn the judgement of another because it differs from your own. You may both be wrong.


All hail the God of Frustration!!!


 :o That's an impressive model.
