Here's a real left-field one from Micro-Mir: the Hunley man-powered submarine used in the American Civil War:

Yes, 7 engines - people sometimes miss the pusher one:



This is a kit release and that is the box art that I posted earlier.  Will be in 1/72 as Frank said.  Thus the kit will be ~39cm long,  and with a wingspan of ~74cm.

In civil transport configuration, the K-7 would have had a capacity for 120 passengers and 7,000 kg (15,000 lb) of mail. As a troop transport it would have had capacity for 112 fully equipped paratroopers. In bomber configuration it would have been armed with 8 x 20mm autocannons, 8 x 7.62mm machine guns and up to 9,600 kg (21,200 lb) of bombs.

For its era (first flew) it wasn't a bad performer: Capacity: 12 people, Max Speed: 135km/h Cruise Speed: 115km/h Ceiling: 2,000m Range: 850km all from a single 110hp M-11 radial.  I could easily see this as a form of airborne assault platform instead of gliders.

I had it in resin in 1/72 - it would have made a good weapon (it had sharp edges, pointy end and it was a solid chunk). Also have it in 1/350. Plus the Russian copy with ramjets.

They've also announced a 1/72 Horten Ho.IX V1, the glider prototype. The CAD looks gorgeous, I'm holding out for them to do the V2...

The 1/350 Keldysh model was made by our own Hamza. Here's my "build" (other than finishing and painting)

Here are his two Sanger designs on Shapeways:

Saenger Antipodal Bomber

I'll have to find a picture of the giant resin 1/72 weapon.

I've got the old (b/w box) MPM kit of the fighter version, but I'd certainly like to see a new tooling to go along with this. To be honest I didn't even know there was a recce version of the G-1

True....   Though will wait for 1/144 to scale-o-rama as 1/72.

Would go with 1/200 as did for PBH-417     http://beyondthesprues.com/Forum/index.php?topic=2179.msg30402#msg30402

Someone created a model of that for a War Thunder game mod and apparently forgot to put the jet engines on it.  It is huge to be sure and impressive to see in game flying around.

Apparently, it was to get 12 turboprops and four jets --- although the turboprops were only about 1900 hp. IMHO, that would be more underpowered than the Hughes HK-1
