Anyone here like the Luftâ´46 designs?
I like them, some of them are very good ones.

Sure, but only if I get to fly the saucer.

I like some of them, but I love the X designs from 1940-1946 for the USAF. Great stuff just as bizzar as the Luft stuff, and a lot of it flew!

I've never seen that before, and I LOL'd at it.

That perfectly symbolized defeat. I'ts like the Former Iraqi information minister becoming a shill for Smirnoff (like he did) or something.

Thanks that was great! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

Hmmm, there was Messerschmitt aircraft after war, one of them is an helicopter.

Gibbage about US designs there was one called "Manta", very strange one.

I like the Blohm & Voss designs like this one:

This is also a good one:

Every nation had some really advanced/weird looking aircraft on the drawing boards in 1944-45. It was just that Germany was about the only nation that was desperate enough to actually think about using them.
