From "Rohrwaffen in Flugzeugen der Luftwaffe bis 1945 - Waffenstände", Waffen-Arsenal issue 188,
two turrets for the Ar 240, one with two MG 131, the other with a single MG 151/20.

Any explanation for the tailboom - I feeling that this must be a twin engined design - but it doesn't feel right...

It's a dive brake - I'm sure it was tried on one of the Junkers x88 developments but wasn't overly successful.

A good explanation of this type of dive brake can be found here:
http://www.lonesentry.com/articles/ttt08/german-airplane-do-217.html
AFAIK in the Do 217 this dive brake was unpopular, because it caused twisting of the whole tail !

Wow...
I'm very glad to report that this looks like it will be business as usual  ;D .


Loads of invaluable information and references.
I've got 'her' in photoshop as we speak.

Already looks great.
A detail, I'm not quite sure about is the height of the turret. It's higher, than those used in the Ar 240,
but that may be determined by the position at the edge of the fuselage. Maybe a fixed cylindrical part
under the rotatable turret ?

Good idea Jens.
Will add as I progress the profile.


I'm sure there will be a number of adjustments on this one. :)

It might be just me looking at things wonkily but is that tail wheel long enough to prevent a tail strike on landing?
