Focke-Wulf Fw 200 L

The final civil Condor design

[ img ]

With the cancelling of the B and D series airliners by the military, Focke-Wulf still continued working on civil designs for Lufthansa.
Production started on the prototype for the L-series for a long range airliner, able to fly from Berlin to Dakar to New York with a commercial payload. Focke-Wulf stregthened the wing and upgraded the engines, both features that would find use on the C-3, but interestingly reverted to a single-bogie undercarriage, albiet with a larger tyre than the A-series.
During construction the prototype, V13, was also commandeered on the production-line by the military and became instead the prototype for the C-3.

Really good to see these never-built Condors in FD scale.

Focke-Wulf Fw 200 F

The final Condor variant.

The F-model was to be a development of the C-6 as a long-range reconnaissance version with additional tankage for a range of 6000kms. Changes to the radio fitout and the most aerodynamic turrets were also standard. A second lower fuel capacity version was also planned.

Here's some Hungarian never-built afv projects from WW2/Post-War:

Post-War Medium Tank Project

(actual name unknown, sometimes referred as "Project 88/100", but that name came from a WOT Hungarian tech tree proposal)

Hunor Armored Car Project

Renard R.40

Further developed from the R.38, Renard attempted to sell a pressurised version to France.

Taking the Merlin-engined R.38, Renard added a pressurised pilot capsule, with the novel feature of a pneumatic ejection system for the whole capsule.
With the German invasion of Belgium the uncompleted prototype was packaged and shipped to France, and with the fall of France was never assembled.

Renard's final development of the R.36 series was the R.42 heavy fighter - two R.40 fuselages joined by a stub wing, another novel design adopted later by the American F-82 Twin Mustang.

I know that these probably get requested all the time, but the Boeing 2707 or the McDonnell Douglas MD-12 would be great.

Airbus Future Jet Trainer (AFJT)

[ img ]

The Airbus Future Jet Trainer (AFJT) is a proposal by Airbus to replace the advanced training jets such as the Northrop F-5 or Alpha Jet, which will be manufactured at the factory in Seville (Spain). It is a supersonic single-engine aircraft, capable of light fighter or attack duties, similar to KAI T-50/F-50 or Boeing T-7.

If the C.A.S.A. code is still used, the new aircraft will be the C-102.

This is a drawing by Andrés López (Toryu84) that I have completed.

Greetings.

De Schelde S.21

Another Dutch design aborted in 1940.

[ img ]

Developed by the Dutch shipbuilding company NV Koninklijke Maatschappij De Schelde, the S.20 was an all-metal pusher fighter designed in 1939. The first prototype was almost finished construction when German forces captured the factory, and was never completed but was tested to destruction.
A novel nose-wheel pusher design, De Schelde worked around the pilot bailing out problem, which plagued Fokker and their D.XXIII, by the novel method of ejecting the propeller. The aircraft was intended for air-air interception and air-ground straffing, with a cannon mounted in the nose which could be locked into position and fired, and with an autopilot system to allow the pilot to fly by rudder pedals and aim the cannon by hand.
If it had been used in combat the S.21 would probably have been unbearably noisy for the pilot, as in addition to the nose mounted cannon 4 machine guns were mounted in the cockpit, 2 on either side of the pilot's shoulders firing through the cockpit glazing.
