Luft '46 Pt. 9 - Fighters Vol. 3

Chapter 10 for rocket, pulse jet and ram jet powered aircraft is well underway, but finding the references and doing the research for this is a little more time consuming than expected, so Iíve done a further series of fighters.

Some are aircraft Iíve done before, but I have re-worked them and added new schemes, but most are completely new. There is a good reason for doing so many fighters and that is there are so many designs....well thatís my excuse. It must be a reflection on the RLM concentrating on fighter design, especially in the last couple of years of WW2. Iíve included a number of firm Luft 46 favourites in addition to some more obscure designs. Some may even have a familiarity to them. Itís well regarded the Fw Ta183 had a huge influence on the MiG 15 and the final Me P1101 was redesigned and built by Bell as the X5. But there are other Luft 46 designs that may have formed the base for postwar aircraft. In particular, the Me P1101 August 44 design bears a striking resemblance to the Polish Iskra jet trainer of the fifties. It makes one wonder.
