A WW2 asymmetric fighter was published in 2014 on Deviant Art (I don't know if it was shown here or somewhere): :-\ <_<

Thanks, I am glad you enjoy this as I do.

Another asymmetric fighter on Deviant Art (but with very modern shape) is at

I like that, but I think the artist missed a trick by not making the starboard engine much bigger than the port and thus giving it a reason for being asymmetric.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

I will choose a path that's clear, I will choose free will.

Veeblefitzer Kawasaki Ki-252c Double Dragon

"While wearing the wrong glasses, Prof. Anton Veeblefitzer, lunatic inventor of anything and everything (... shudder), took a blue print of Kurt Tank's Ta-152, accidentally duplicating it on a primitive IBM copy machine, and over guessing the dimensions, coerced his subjects at the Kawasaki Aircraft Co. to do his bidding and build the famous VeebleKawaki Ki-252 Double Dragon."

Nice idea and artwork. A twin Ki-61 would also work and be even more believable!

Two twin-Ki-61 have been built and shown here:

Oh heck, I now need a second Aoshims Ta-152-H to add to the one that I have, so that I can build this wonderfull beast. Possiobly with extended wings.  :wacko:

What do you mean, 'possibly'? There's no 'possible' about it!
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! :)

I do agree Kit, but there is not a lot of tapered wing left on the Ta-152-H to extend, and I do not think Kurt Tank had thought of winglets at that time.
However Hiro Nakamura might have.  :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
