I hope they will add the parts and decals for D-335 M17, which was captured and completed by French and German personnel. Finally it was flown in 1947.
Not interested in a "what-if" plane. Now I have to go with ZM for the A-12, even when I don´t like the clear main parts.


Hi
What is the difference between a B-6 and a M-17?
A quick wiki check (am on my phone) and I can’t see anything about the M-17.
Thanks
Nick

HK told me they were't doing the B-4 version but I have a B-4 conversion nearly complete. Graham did the 3D work for me. I'm just working on the last parts for it and should be ready soon. Also, HK informed me the other day that their A-12 2-seat variant is on hold since ZM beat them to the punch.


What is the appropriate base kit for this?

Should be the Do-335 A fighter-bomber as it didn't have the Armored canopy.

I thought the overall green one in French markings was one of the B-2s, M13 or M14.

I was using the B-2 as the base kit as the information I have it was to be armed recon with armored B-2 wind screen and larger nose wheel associated with the B variant.  Could be wrong though.  Always a first for everything.  Have the bomb bay doors with camera ports, wing inserts to remove the 30mm cannons, extended wingtips, and a couple other parts if I remember right.  Been a while.

No 'WHAT-IF'  here... absolutely real aircraft - tested by the French in 1948 till they crashed it

Hello


We (french) had the M14 W.nr 230014 RP+UQ B2 and the M17 W.nr 230015. As we loved to crash german airplanes, the two birds were scrapped at the end of the 40'...no comment...

It is known that the batch of the M15 and M16 2300..CP+UP and RP+? were equipped as nightfighter for test


So.. can we say that the B6 is really a "what if"? I would say it's only a bird a bit unknown...and we can hope that photographic evidence appears in the next years...or a wonderful find of a wreck as mentionned few months ago in a private collection bring more details...

Eric L, what did you say in the post#16, you propose an upgrade with the long span wing?

Amities

I think the French one was an A-6 not a B-6 based on the A frame not the B

The French had two Do335s.  The first was the Do335 M-14, which was a B series with the podded cannons in the wings.  The second was the Do335 M-17, which was a prototype night fighter based on the B series airframe.  Both had the armored windscreen.
