It still fits though most doors but what size vehicle will be needed to haul that thing to the model shows in one piece and not partially disassembled?

Others in the works from HpH:  (all are 1/32 kits): Grumman F7F Tigercat, Douglas A20 Havoc, DC-3 Dakota, Savoia-Marchetti SM.79, Messerschmitt Me323 Gigant, Handley Page H.P. O/400 and Zlin/LET Z-37 Čmelák.  There is also talk of a 1/32 SR-71 or B-58.

BTW, here are pics of the F7F and Me321 in work:

Pretty much have to have one just to marvel at it.  Need to do a price check first.

Built as 1/72:    243ft fuselage    345ft wing    70ft 1.5in height
Then to find however many 1/72 engines to fly it.
Runway, taxiway, parking apron, and hanger size would be civil engineering challenges !
