    I couldn't work on my Ente build. The baby was sleeping and my work desk was near the crib.

    Not wanting to waste the night, I went out the room, fired up my PC and started working on my next Luft'46 project --- the Heinkel HE P.1079B/II All Weather Heavy Fighter.

    You'll find the original design info the Luft'46 site: http://www.luft46.com/heinkel/hep1079c.html

    Here are some shots of the model I've made using META.





    I'm hoping to add some internal formers on this one.

    Heh, I don't think he means by himself, I'm sure he means from lots of designers combined.

    Sorry I didn't make my point... I meant every designer try to come up with something Luft-46 related... that'll be good :D

    Yeah, that was actually why I created the Luft '46 list thread.

    By the way...

    I don't think the Natter and Pfeil should be considered Luft'46 material. Though they never saw action, they did get to fly (even if the natter killed its test pilot). :p

    Does "didn't fly" count as a criterion for luft'46...?

    And what about japanese 46's.



    PS: i'm "only" missing american, british, italian and USSSR 46's.

    ...They don't count, we've got American X-projects for that ;) --It's only the losers who get attention, since there's no chance these will ever become reality! :D
  19. Luft '46 Definition

    As best as I can recall, the definition of Luft '46 (which includes all parties to the war) was that they were designs that could have emerged had the war gone on longer than 1945. This includes flying prototypes that had not been formally introduced. The P-80 is the prime example of a '46 aircraft that had actually flown.

    "During WWII, German aircraft designers put forth many aircraft project ideas, which ranged from the practical to the bizarre." -from the heading on the Luft '46 site.
    They seem to define it specifically as projects developed by Germany during WWII, whether they were ever fully designed, flew or anything else.
