Yeah, what the title says. A one off adaptation of two Jumo 210 bomber engines mated to the airframe of a started and unfinished Airfix Mistubishi Ki-46 II 'Dinah' camera ship found several years ago in a very cool and esoteric collectibles fair scale model job lot. Why? Because it was missing a Mitsubishi radial engine is why, and I had two spare Jumos from a stalled CASA Pedro build. Enjoy.

Very nice-looking model, and I could imagine such a variant being built and test-flown at the very least. She might have been a bit underpowered (which the initial Dinahs were) if the figures I found for the Jumo 210 and the Ha-26/-102 engines are correct (690 hp vs 875-1080 hp), but she definitely has the classic Ki-46 good looks, albeit with slightly less elegant nacelles.

Delightful bit of work. Well done. 8-)

Thanks. I think actually that these would have been Jumo 211s (from an old Airfix Heinkel He111P kit) so their performance would have been somewhat better than the 210, my what-if here being a speculative attempt to increase range and altitude capability at the expense of some performance..

Nice work, the stream line cowling should have reduced drag therefore helped with performance.
