Blue He-111 with DC-3 wings is an excellent combination.

Blue plane is particularly graceful.  :smiley:  Great combo.

Concur, the radials give it a very tough look.

Both versions are attractive, but I concur with the others that I really like the one with DC-3 wings.  I could see that as the result of a license-build, though not sure which aircraft would be licensed.

Agreed. And your build really reinforces how dainty the He 111 fuselage was  :smiley:

Always nice to see a scale-o-rama kit bash that actually looks good.

That's just great with one engine and the pointy nose, eric!

I've got plans to graft a clear Ju-88 (maybe?) nose onto one of my Pfeils in the pile.

and now for something completely different :

sometimes I buy a kit or a miniature car just because it seems cheap,
and then I have to make sensible (in some sense) use of it,
while trying to empty (or lower) the stash ...
