yes, I know I mentioned this one before, but it is so bizarre it bears repeating

FlyModel has BV-141 in 1/33 scale, although I don't know if it's out of print. You can find these things fairly often on eBay if you're patient.

I have a diorama including a BV-141 in 1/72 I did a while back. I'll try to get a pic and post it. It is one weird looking plane, but I understand it flew like a dream. (You might remember this one, Possm)

Here's the BV 141 diorama I did a while back titled "But Sir, that IS all of it!". ( I have a better pic of the overall somewhere, I'll try to find it )

Image

I opened everything up with a microsaw and added a lot of scratch stuff.

Image

It didn't have anything but a seat in the cockpit either

Enjoy,

That barely qualifies as wierd enough for me. I might have to see if I can give it a crack.

Murphyaa,
I believe Airfix has started selling it again in 1/72. I think Squadron carries it.
