Nothing against wikipedia, very good for writing school homeworks and so on .
And yes, the one (!), who wrote that article, probably found the "Me 565" somewhere.
But it isn't mentioned and all the other mentions on the internet seem to go round
in circles. NO source is mentioned anywhere ! The designation "Me 565" would have been
assigned by the RLM and we have a thread about those designations here, too. But still
yet, I've found no mention of that number. Of course, there are gaps, but it's not useful
anyway to "fill" them with unproven data.
"We can ask them. ..."
Yes please, and I would strongly recommend for the next time to ask them BEFORE stating,
that there was such a project. And if you'll get an answer about the original source, you should
check, if it is plausible and reliable one.
And no, we don't "ignore little known German aircraft", but, as said often enough before, especially
this theme is full of misinterpretations, errors, fakes and probably even of deliberate misinformation
by sources, which may appear as absolutely reliable and doubtless at first glance (designers/constructors,
who tried to hoke their life career, probably ). And many of us are busy in other fields, so not able to check
such hasty reactions. And then, others searching for the "Me 565" get a hit list including the SPF, hopefully
still regarded as a trustable source ... Reading this posts here already may appear too much for, say, someone
who looks for suitable types for the next Resin kit.
Perhaps you should compare mentions of such unknown types with anonymous letters to the Egyptian tax office,
saying that you sold 500 cars during the last year. Would you really be accepting a tax bill based on such a letter ?
