The German magazine 'Klassiker der Luftfahrt' published an old 7 paged advertising brochure about the Turboprop-Airliner HFB-209.

Quote
Vergessenes Projekt der 50er Jahre
Der Turboprop-Airliner HFB-209
Der Hamburger Flugzeugbau als Teil der Schiffswerft Blohm & Voss suchte nach dem zweiten Weltkrieg wieder den Anschluß an die Luftfahrtindustrie und beteiligte sich zunächst an der Lizenzfertigung der Nord 2501 Noratlas.
Im Juli 1957 berichtete die Fachpresse erstmals über das neue Projekt HFB-209, das den im Einsatz befindlichen Convair-Linern Konkurrenz machen sollte. Außer der nachfolgenden kleinen Werbebroschüre ist über diesen Typ so gut wie nichts an die Öffentlichkeit gelangt.

My two cents.
Draw made using Inkscape on the only blueprint available of the HFB.209.
Of course I could only imagine some details. Hope you enjoy my work.

Re: the HFB 314
Wonder why the D-shaped (is that called sugar scoop?) inlets? It would seem like the length necessary to transition to a round section at the compressor (or fan?) face would impose a drag and weight penalty.  Could they have wanted to grab undisturbed air while placing the engines as far aft and inboard as possible?

That's possible,any change in wing shape forced on the designer to figure a suitable
position for the engines,if he failed,the simple thing is to put them in rear fuselage.

That's an interesting link Steelpillow.
Other aircraft projects depicted on other pages of that article of operator's reference drawings include the Avro 771 and the BAC 107 as well as the VC-10 Super Freighter.
