1/72 scale, $70

The Hs 130C was a greatly modified version of the aircraft designed for the 'Bomber B' competition (alongside the Junkers Ju 288, Focke-Wulf Fw 191 and Dornier Do 317). The Hs 130C used a new pressurised cabin that could carry a crew of four. It was armed with three remotely controlled barbettes, two armed with 13mm MG 131 machine-guns (above and below the cabin) and one in the tail armed with a 7.9mm MG 15. He Hs 130C could carry up to 4,410lb of bombs, and had the space to carry a single SC 1800 bomb or two LT F5b torpedoes.
Three prototypes were completed. The V1 and V2 were originally powered by two 1,600hp BMW 810A radial engines, while the V3 used the 1,750hp Daimler Benz DB 603A. The V2 was later given two 1,810hp BMW 801Tj radial engines, with turbo-superchargers.
The V3 was the only version built with the defensive armament, and would have been the precursor for 100 production C-1s that the German Air Ministry considered ordering in the summer of 1943, but this came to nothing when the entire Bomber B competition was scraped.
