…. FICTIONAL WORLD

"NOT CONTENT WITH making Star Wars kits from 'a long time ago', Revell now journeys to another fictional past with the 1:72 scale Haunebu II. The kit is an absolute must for all Luftwaffe 1946 fans.


SMN report: What if World War II hadn't ended in 1945? What if Hitler's forces had gone on fighting? What if the vaunted V-weapons had included ultra-speed flying saucers?

Questions like these make the what-if world of Luft 46 an endlessly fascinating subject. And that makes this latest kit from Revell all the more of a must-have for sci-fi and fantasy fans…."

ACH DU LIEBE!!!!

Well, they make a Pelican from Halo as well, though the version with the Hind-style cockpit sadly.

The Luftwaffe observers were surprised when the Hanebau prototype simply disappeared when they activated the Vrill drive. The test pilots were more surprised when they found themselves in the Hanebau in orbit over a world that they did not recognize.

So, is this a careful reproduction of the original lamp shade? grin

Wait until they start to create 1/48th scale replicas of the hubcaps photographed flying over the U.S. desert during the 1950's!

Here's mine I did for my 6mm Squats using an HLS/Exodus Wars model … A proxy for the Overlord Airship …

Squadron Shop has had theirs out for awhile. Also doing some other variants like a civilian "airliner" version.

Haunebu are direct copies of the Venusian Flying Saucers George Adamski claims to have photographed in 1948. The type of lampshade used by Adamski to fake the photos is known. No surprise that fanbois do not know the source of their 'sourcers'(sic)

That one of Legion's looks like it could be a cake.

For an interesting take on this theme see if you can get "The 25th Reich" on DVD. Made in Australia, the film is a bit of a shocker but it does have an interesting premise. A group of American soldiers are despatched to the outback to hunt down two panthers that have escaped their duties as mascots. Needless to say, time travel, flying saucers and giant Nazi spiders feature prominently!
