1/32 - Messerschmitt Me.321/323 Gigant resin kit by HpH - prototype in progress - release in 2020 ?

This is crazy! Why not do it in 1/48? They might sell more that way.
Although I would like to have a 1/35 C-5A! :banghead:

Would have one in an instant but the £500+ price tag is a no-no..

About 68" span. I can really think of no reason to build a Gigant that size that doesn't fly.

This one is only 48" span, so close to 1/48 scale, and flies beautifully.

It's free-flight, not radio controlled, and uses an onboard electronic timer to start the engines in sequence, very prettily, and then provide a pre-determined take-off, cruise, descent profile

There's a video downloadable part way down that page which is well worth a view.

Diorama with Me 321 being attacked by Beaufighters over the Med (at least I think it was Beaufighters but might have been another allied type)

The crews of the Me323 must have had balls of cryptonite to fly over the med to supply Rommel and take casualties out, as they were so slow and cumbersome, that even allied bombers returning from missions, would try to shoot them down !

Much as I would like the idea of a 1/32 Me323, I'm not sure the present Mrs Jockney would welcome the idea of a loft conversion for me to keep it in when it was finished, besides I have had the 1/72 scale one for about 10 years and still haven't got round to building it

Cheers Pat

Wouldn't 1/35th make more sense - better diorama possibilities.

I was thinking a garage door as a loft hatch, watch out "Grand Designs" !

The release of the 1/32 Gigant is scheduled for end of 2016.

Pavel(Profimodeller), who is also involved in this project,told me in November, that the retail price will be about Euro 1.400,-. So I have already started to save money.

Love needing two guys to hold the wing

Suddenly modelling becomes a family/ group activity !

This is the master, it´s massive wood and heavy.

I guessed something like that. Certainly doesn't look like any 323 wing in the photo.

Bet it's a cracking model though

Yes, that is gigantic, but it's still not the 1/32nd scale B-36 I want.

Jason
