I am actually tempted to do a super detailed real world one of these...maybe even do as an open cutaway similar to this one in Pensacola:

Beagle arrived today.  Looks great at first inspection.  Very nice detailing. :)

Great service from HPH as well.  Arrived in less than two weeks since ordering. :)

Wow - that Letov's a bit obscure! Mind you, I bet it will make a very pleasing display model in 1/32nd, with the open cockpits and the wood-grain prop.

My Bro' has got one of those, he was showing it to me when we were down at his place a few months ago.  The detail is incredible ----

Well, guess the car sits out in the elements now. The garage is the only display case big enough for this.

Oh, and I'd have to make it a strategic bomber.

She'll find it sooner or later, unless you never build it. And what would be the point of that?
The "beep-beep" of the truck backing up to deliver it would be a sure give away anyhow!

It will be a tad big. Should be about 1.28m long with a wingspan of around 64cm.
