Dornier P222/9-08 Stuka
« on: March 04, 2012, 05:39:40 am »
Hi guys,
 
from Pierre Gaillard`s "Les Avions Dornier". The first picture, according the book, relates to the above designation, the second to the P223, but I believe they are the same. M. Gaillard adds the lenght as 15,35m and the span as 16,50m. More ammo for you, Peter ;) |

Ammo indeed....beautifully weird.
I love this game. It's been a very productive day so far.  :D


Any date for this one?

Not included in the text, but my educated guess would be 1939, 1940 as terminus ad quem.

As you haven't posted a side-view, I suspect there's none ?

I must say that it is...Super :D ! The long tail is mostly the airbrake, by the way. Dornier excelled in that matter with the Do217. Well done!

Hi
I've started doing the keyline drawings.
Top view done so far.


The side cockpit reminds me of an old British bus cab.


I'm wondering as to the route or exit for the exhausts due to the cockpit position. I feel they may be routed down to exit on the underside, any thoughts?


Also is the turret glazed or an automated solid shell type?


Many thanks

This project somehow looks to me like an ancestor of the Fairchild A-10...

I think, it would have been a remotely controlled type with a solid cover, very similar to the one
fitted to the Ar 240.
