Default Luft '46 kit bash

This model is the FPV designed X-8 bashed into a Luft '46 sort of thing that Blohm und Voss may have come up with if they had had enough time Name:  biggrin.gif

To set the scene: Know then that it is the year OneThousandNineHundredandFourtySix. The Third Reich is still in control of much of Europe. The Allied invasion has bogged down following the German break out during the Battle of the Bulge and the Russians have been fought to a standstill following their defeat at the massive tank battle at Kursk. The skies over Germany are crisscrossed with vapour trails from the latest Luftwaffe jet fighters. The USAF B-29s have been taking a mauling from the Swallows, Salamanders and Hucks and have had to retreat to night bombing. This has caused the Germans some concern as the fast high flying B-29s are hard to intercept at night and the existing jet and piston engined fighters struggle to reach their altitude with enough fuel to loiter for very long.

Blohm und Voss have been engaged by the RLM to complete the prototype of their type 219 high altitude flying wing night fighter which can carry a huge fuel load and is built around the massive new turbo super charged BMW double in line piston engine. B&V, still smarting from their 212 losing out to the Ta 183, have thrown themselves into the 219 project and the prototype has been completed and is undergoing test flights. Some grainy footage has emerged showing it to be a very agile fighter.
