Hm, I'd never heard of this before. Looks a bit like 2 Bf-109 noses jammed together...


It looks great!!  From what I found on the Web, it looks like a real what if; proposed in 1943 but never built.

All hail the God of Frustration!!!


Yes, this real What If:

"In 1943 the Marton XV-01 was developed as a heavy fighter. The twin-boomed tricycle gear design was designed to use two DB 605 engines, one tractor and one pusher. It was to be armed with a 30mm engine-mounted cannon, two heavy machine guns in the cowling, and additional cannons in the wing roots and boom leading edges. This would make for a very heavy hitting aircraft. The aircraft was to have an ejection seat, designed on a twin rail system powered by a spring. In 1944, the fuselage and wing structure were completed, but they were destroyed in an Allied bombing raid in April 1944."

Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

First heard about this design a few months ago, very nice looking machine. :wub:

Sure looks like a cross between a Saab J-21 and a Fokker D.23 but with German engines!

Sure can't fault the nice finish work! Good Job!
My mind is like a compost heap: both "fertile" and "rotten"!


Love this design and the build is fantastic.

Definately going to get a nomination for the Whiffies.

Excellent build and I really like the camo  :thumbsup:


Brilliant stuff ST, certainly looks the part.  The composite photo is very well done also.




I've got this kit in the stash and all I can say is that it's not a bad kit but this is a fantastic build - gorgeous  :bow:
Do not condemn the judgement of another because it differs from your own. You may both be wrong.


Didn't know anything about this aircraft, at first I thought you'd bashed a Fokker D.XXIII with a pair of 109's.
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.
