As Ju 290 + Ju 290 = Ju 290Z or Ju 490 (Junkers)
As Ju 390 + Ju 390 = Ju 390Z or Ju 690 (Ted Nomura)
 here below is the asymmetrical intermediate:
 Ju 390 + Ju 290 = Ju 590Z or Ju 590 (Tophe):

Hmmm, that assymetric F-16 is a the thing I'm not allowed to say, especially with a broken thumb.
Has a moderator edited that, or am i drunk? That makes no sense at all!

From http://www.whatifmodelers.com/forum//index...20&#entry194264 , mixing side by side the 3-engined PP-61 and the single-engined Ps-61 gives the asymmetrical PsP-61Z
(with a technical/user reason: 2 noses were good but 4-engined was too much drag/weight/cost)

From my collection of fake Mustangs ( http://www.whatifmodelers.com/forum//index...00&#entry198814 ), I may add here the joining of half a P-82R-1820 and half a P-82R-4360 into an asymmetric twin-plane.

A double He 111H would be the 4-engined 111HH, not the 5-engined 111Z
- A double He 111S Segelflugzeug (glider) would be the 111SS glider
- Joining them would be the asymmetric 111HS
- (between He 111H and 111S would be the asymmetrisch 111U, and a double one would be the 111UU)

What about a He-111 with 3 engines? 2 on outer wing sections, and 3rd on the 2nd fuselage!

A Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress has been turned into an asymmetric motor home...

I have recently added an asymmetric what-if delta Mig-29 at :
http://www.whatifmodelers.com/index.php/topic,21287.165.html
Maybe JP Vieira will add other asymmetric what-if aircraft there (not yet).

I recently stumbled across this interesting 1943 Swedish 'what-if 'asymmetric design in 'Flight' , its a bit of interest - as a high performance option..

https://www.flightglobal.com/pdfarchive/view/1943/1943%20-%202536.html


It sits as yet another 'couldabeen' Napier Sabre powered high speed bomber, along with the similarly still-born DH Super-Mosquito & its Hawker equivalent..
Too bad so few Sabres were actually built, & so many Merlins & Hercules' were thus scattered all over 'Festung Europa', due to vulnerable 'heavies' being lost..

Thanks for this link.
I knew this project, I said last month that the tail on this design was wrong, at the (temporary) end of my site http://www.kristofmeunier.fr/Asymm_addition.htm
Corrected:

Cool T, & that one with its Ikea modular looks, seems like it could morph into a bunch of multi engine options..
..like say,  a twin nacelle push-pull /4 engine - with a 33% scaled up fuselage & V-tail..

Here you are...: ;D


Except for the 33% scale up, because this is less easy from a bitmap source (not vectotial): the bigger lines are blurred, not correct, sorry. :-\
