Here are some pictures of MPM Models Heinkel's HE 177 A5 Grief 1/48 scale. This aircraft for all intensive purposes was a disaster. The HE 177 was actually a four engined heavy bomber placed in two nacelles. So as a result due to extreme over heating there were lots of engine fires on the ground and in flight, explosions, and a lot of dead air crew. Why the insistence of this design is anyones guess. It wasn't till the A5 version came along that most of the bugs were worked out. Of coarse by that time of the war a heavy German bomber was pretty much useless being that heavy bombers are offensive weapons and by 1943 Nazi Germany was quite decidedly on the defencive.

Here are some pictures of my latest diorama. What it is is a picture of a modern Japanese infantry unit discovering an abandoned P 51 B Mustang. The Mustang is 1/32 scale Revell. The soldiers are 1/35 scale Tamiya. The Hummer is 1/35 scale Italeri. It is unfortunate that I was unable to find a 1/35 scale Mustang or vis versa. However 1/35 scale and 1/32 scale are pretty close.
