Ahh yes.  Another fine enlightening combo  :smiley:

a four-engine He-111 should'a been built in real life !
Just replace the tip-pods with Me-109 parasite fighters & one of their towed fuel tanks behind :D

Luft 46'    Appropriately streamlined fuselage to go with those wings.  :smiley:

Yep, that combo works really well  :smiley:

The earlier, 4-engined Heinkel/Constellation made me think of a Big Brother for the He 116 mailplane.

That looks great! The elevators may get a bit warm from the exhausts, though.

Not with those engines unless there is something going on that we can't see.

There is . . .   ;)
Those aren't Beaufighter Hercules engines under those cowlings, but rather two of the special, two stage supercharged Pegasus engines used by the original Bristol 138A. Armament would be four rifle-calibre Brownings.
My scenario is 1939-40, with the Ju86s flying photo recce missions over England prior to Operation Sealion . . .

cheers,
Robin.
