A neat to kitbash one day idea is.
1/32 He111 fuselage with some sort of large 1/72 wings plus appropriate fuselage mods to become 1/72 heavy bomber.

Stretch the existing wings with a constant chord and airfoil section on each side mounting another engine (yielding a 4-engined heavy bomber)?  Or if you want a really heavy bomber, the middle wing of a He111Z on each side with the outboard wing, outboard of the engines, of a standard He111.

Or combine with a 1/48 Cutting Edge He 111D/E Conversion and turn into a twin fuselage airliner... ;)

What if a liner derived from CASA C.2111?

Sorry. I posted something that was not related with He-111. So, I deleted my post. :smiley: :D

If the Do-217 could be a night fighter, why not the He-111:

I am also a bit into He111 thinking, if a kit comes crossing my way maybe , but just a question: 
are the early version of the Glas nose made symetric and not like the later versions ?

They seem to have missed the one firing forward from the belly gunner's bulge/pod/blister.

The forward glazing of the He 111 V7 and V8 - prototypes for the He 111P - were noticeably different from the glazing on production models. But, AFAIK, the asymmetry existed from the outset.

In the late 1930's the Irish Air Corps looked at all the twin-engined German planes as they wanted an MP plane which could also act as a troop transport.
They ended up with the Anson 1 but I always thought a He-111 would have been a more logical choice.

The nose cannon in Bertram's plane looks larger-than-2cm. When I went looking for documentation, I found this from a gaming video.

An Irish He111 could prove an interesting build

In the trailer for the most recent Indiana Jones movie, there appears to be a twin-tailed He 111. I did not notice the second gun blister atop the fuselage the first time...

It's a mockup for a Russian movie. Pretty good 1:1 model, though.
