Aw, nice!  Great job on that Tom.

Very nice.  And quite original too, I might add :)

:wub: Thanks Tom, I thought I was crazy designing a Mustang helicopter :( , but your Me 109 autogyro introduces wonderfully my mad creations :) . Thanks. :)
Though :( , I fear JMNs :angry:  will disapprove a detail in your Web page about this one : "Focke-Wulf 192" production code for a 1940 project is dubious. The Putnam WW2 German aircraft book says that RLM-code 192 was given in 1937 to Ago company (twin-engined communication aircraft for 6 passengers). But What-if historians were wrong ? I agree completely, dreaming is better...  :)

It's allways reasuring when you find out that you're not the only completely crazy person in the world.  :lol:

Thanks for the heads-up about the 192 number.  :wub:  When I wrote the text I didn't have my references with me and I planned to check later but I forgot.  :dum:
I changed the number in the text to 169, which wasn't assigned according to my references.

Wow, that's _quite_ original.  :) It could spawn a whole series of similar efforts, though as you note in the article, forward visibility would have been virtually nil.  :blink:

A fine build, as well. I look forward to seeing your other what-ifs!  :cheers:  
In want of hobby space!  The kitchen table is never stable.  Still managing to get some building done.


Oh, boy!!!!
Someone gave me a part-started Hobbycraft 1/48th '109E yeasterday, that could appear in this format.....but how about Kriegsmarine??
Superb. :wacko:

Great stuff !

Vive les Canadiens !
Where's my beer ?


Dear Tom Z, may I include the P-51E below in my forthcoming book (Virtual Mustangs - just waiting for TSR-Joe checking), sending you a free copy as reward ?

PS. My book is devoted to plane shapes without pilot inside, the canopy being only an eye, so the rotation axis can go though the "seat", no problem...

Sure Tophe, no problem. Use all you want.
