Ok here is a challenge for you scratch builders out there. I have posted over at my website a few pictures of Concept rocket planes of the Third Reich. These are just screaming to be built and flown by a modeller. I plan to try building one myself.

Has anyone built one of these yet?(von Braun Interceptor, Arado Ar E.555 series, EMW A-6, Daimler Benz Project "F")

Anyone game to give it a try?

I'll post my build results here and would love to see if anyone else is interested.

Damn, That's one nice looking bird! Could you give a little more info? Is it a glide recovery or parachute? How about some stats. Its tough to gauge the size in that one picture. Maybe a few more pics?

That is just a concept artist image. See what I mean. It needs to be built as a model. It looks like a model.

Cool pic; looks like a V-2 but heavily modified. Look closely at the nose cone,
tail cone and main body. Only the external features are different. But, you're
right, it's begging to be built as a model rocket!

I know a site with some weird stuff on the A4b, A9, A10, A11, etc, but I hesitate to post the URL because the guy who runs it seems to be...well, politically questionable to say the least! He is, as far as I can make out, an extreme German nationalist who thinks Germans invented everything!

That Arado should not be too much of a stretch:D

yeah Luft 46 has some awesome stuff, in college we had to build a tethered flying model from a 3 view out of blue foam and lunch trays and I toyed with some on luft 46, (went with a twin Hadly page biplane the only bi plane ever done for that class) Some the Blohm and Voss observation planes are wacky looking but there were a few actual built.
