I have this kit FW-200 :



on which I think I will now use He 177 wings after seeing your profiles.
Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

I wonder - 4 engined He177 but instead of coupled DB606s/DB610s or even 4 separate 'conventional' mounts such as not he He274/277, they do tandem DB601s/605s/603s with one in puller, one in pusher config but all in the same nacelle.  Would probably need tricycle undercarriage though.  Would be conceptually similar to this:

 Art work of tandem DB601s/605s/603s with one in puller, one in pusher configuration is inspiring.

As is the Turboprop idea... That might get stolen

I was planning on using some of the Unicraft DB.021 ones (they come in 1/48 & 1/72):



I was also planning on replacing the tail gun with a MAD boom and maybe take the turrets off.

One would definitely need either nose wheel tricycle undercarriage or perhaps tilting rear props ala Do26 below:

In order to fix the problem with cooling... what about installing deeper annular radiators?

When you read about the problems with the DB606 they were a lot more than just not having enough cooling.  The entire engine layout/installation was a mess., especially the oil system  When the DB610s were fitted though it sounds like much was resolved.

I find this comment supposedly from Göring of interest though:  "Why has this silly engine suddenly turned up, which is so idiotically welded together? They told me then, there would be two engines connected behind each other, and suddenly there appears this misbegotten monster of welded-together engines one cannot get at!"

The first two were built by Trickyrich. He a BTS member but has not logged in in 2 over years.

Unable to identify the builder of the He-577. I wonder where the wings came from if not scratch built.

The He577 has a good dose of Horten Ho 229.  In fact checking proves that correct - see here:  https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234927171-group-build-chat/page/3/
