Airfix have released a special-edition He-111 H-6 kit to celebrate, of all things, the 40th anniversary of heavy metal band Motorhead's "Bomber" LP.

https://www.airfix.com/uk-en/heinkel-he111-h-6-motorhead-bomber-special.html

The kit itself features the standard, historical aircraft as-built, although with the option of stylized Motorhead decals in place of the normal Luftwaffe ones, if you should so desire.

The cover art for the album, however, is what made me bring this here. The artist obviously ran wild with the gun turrets and the result is definitely very fictional, but as a fantasy version of a known, historical airplane I thought it was worthy of being seen here. (I actually did ask if they had offered an option with all the fantasy gun turrets; sadly, the answer was no.)
