On thing I love about your work Tophe is that not only are your concepts some of the most innovative I've ever seen, but that your finished projects are so beautiful they could double as modern sculpture. Your Messerschmitt P.1141 is an outstanding example of your incredible vision and artistic talent.

Thanks a lot, dear both of you :lol:
while, uh...
- the concept here is mostly not mine: I just turned the "vertical-asymmetry" into a more funny/weird lateral-asymmetry, the rest comes from you friends, sharing our what-if craziness is wonderful
- for handicraft skills, I am (one of?) the worst of you here, and I admire the way you do - I just try to finish somehow what I have started, and for that I use my uncommon silly standards (solidity is better than undercarriage/landing ability, cleanliness is better than engine/propeller reality, uncommon black eye is better than badly handled clear canopy, etc.)
So: all of you are better than me somehow, while I am having fun anyway, and if I make you smile, this is a great bonus for me! ;D

Little correction: the P.1141 is not a Messerschmitt prototype but a Vogt-erschmitt design
see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Vogt_(aircraft_designer)

And here is the model completed, with a 1944-top-secret transparent undercarriage, have you noticed? (and wooden airfield for Stealth purpose)

Another work of art that will make all who see it gape in awe and wonder!

I really like your tinted canopies, Tophe and this one fits your project perfectly!

What a cracker!  :lol: ;D

You have to look at each piccie twice to work out which way the wing and tail is pointing, fantastic!

Well up to your usual standard of asymmetric madness Tophe, I'm wholly impressed. Love the 'stealth landing gear' too...
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Regards
