1941 design concept for a heavy fighter propelled by twinned engines positioned at the aircraft's centre of mass. The 'Bloodhawk' design from the FASA's old Crimson Skies setting setting is superficially similar but somewhat smaller (see photo).x1 x2
1944 concept design for a 'arrow wing' fighter, this is the more conservative version using the proven DB 603 engine rather than the more powerful As 413. I chose this version because I think it's a slightly more interesting arrangement with the big underslung radiator and because the diagrams were easier to interpret.
I'm puzzled by one thing, there's a huge inlet for the radiator but no outlet - web searches just show more images of the same conundrum.x1 x4 (on sprue)
