Hi, I finished my second Gigant - yes! This time motorised version, Me 323 D1. I have to confess, that initially I was thinking on huge conversion to E-1 (additional blisters with MG and two turrets on wings, changies in cowlings and in nose), then I reduced my plans only to conversion to D-2 variant (two blades wooden propellers and other shape cowlings) or perhaps D-6 (just additional position for gunners in cockpit) but i quit.... The size oversized me in some way, I am sorry to say... I only added landing lamps in wings and some surface structure on the bottom of fuselage as well as I made model in not-from-the-box painting scheme of DT+IT, known from colour photos taken during some repair on a field workshop on Eastern front (one of such photo is here: http://www.luftarchiv.de/index.htm?/flugzeuge/messerschmitt/me323.htm or here: http://www.loutan.net/olivier/archives/2006/07/23/messerschmitt-me-323-d1-gigant/ ) The machine was likely used in both African and Eastern fronts. She has individual name "Himmelshaus" witten on one side of a front gate. Here two sisters on a shelf: And the Messerschmitt family from my collection (M 35B is standing on SCW shelf, so here is missing) Best regards, comments welcome as always Jerzy-Wojtek
