I do suggest that your design should be also available in 1:33 scale to be consistent with other WW2 bomber models out there ( like the GPM Wellington ). I know it can be scaled up, but the parts may not fit on the page, or the details will be blurry )


Best wishes on the design.

Can't say I had noticed the wing pitch angle on the whitley but have you ever seen a B52 take off? They fly very nose down looking like the are about to crash.

From
Armstrong Whitworth Whitley - Wikipedia

As Lloyd *** was unfamiliar with the use of flaps on a large heavy monoplane, they were initially omitted from the design. To compensate, the mid-set wings were set at a high angle of incidence (8.5°) to confer good take-off and landing performance. Although flaps were included late in the design stage, the wing remained unaltered ; as a result, the Whitley flew with a pronounced nose-down attitude when flown with the wings in the cruising position, resulting in considerable drag.


*** John Lloyd, the Chief Designer of Armstrong Whitworth Aircraft

You're right.
At least until the end of 1941, the Whitleys flew over Central Europe. For example, the first attempt to land parachutists of the Anthropoid group in Czechoslovakia (October 1941) was made with Whitley, but due to bad weather over the target, the aircraft had to return. It wasn't until December that the landing was successful, but Halifax was already carrying it.
I am very happy that the finally usable Whitley model will be available, as well as in a scale that can be well reduced to my favorite 1/72. I will definitely buy it!

The appearance of the nose down of the B-52 is due to the very large flaps deployed during take off and landing. Those flaps push the center of lift aft causing a pronounced nose down ( to aid visually during landing approach as well as to make sure the plane touched down on all 4 wheel bogies unlike a conventional tri gear plane touching down on the main gear first ).


As to the Whitley wing incidence angle, take a close look again at a side profile.
