Focke-Wulf flying wing jet night fighter
.....
Tail comparison between Me 209, Mustang, Airacobra and Vultee Vanguard

That FW flying wing is a new discovery right? And is the 209 the later 109 reworking or is it the earlier design?

The flying wing is a new, and frankly rather bizarre-looking, discovery. The 209 is the later version. It is Messerschmitt drawing number III/465 of May 22, 1943, signed by 'Forster'. The image printed is a cropped version of the full drawing - the more bulbous tail comparison on the far right is from the Hawker Typhoon. Here's a slightly bigger version of the image.

Great stuff just at the preface, as usual. Thanks for fuelling this forum, Dan!

Just picked up mine today at Barnes & Noble and have found it very enjoyable.  But I believe there's a caption missing on page 51.

Hardcopy showed up this past Friday in my local, Fort Worth, Barnes & Noble.  Despite having one coming from England, I bought one to encourage them to stock more of Dan's efforts in the future.

You're right - the caption is missing but the three-view is indeed of the Focke-Wulf Schwanzloser Bomber mit 2 HeS 109-11, drawing number 0310 239-10, dated February 16, 1944.

Thanks, Dan.  I'll make a copy of that and stick it in the book.

I got mine some days ago. Shipment to Germany took about 8 weeks! :( So I hope that is not a foretaste of Brexit. Anyway, this bookazine is fantastic and a excellent supplement to the other Luftwaffe Secret Projects volumes. Please keep the excellent work. :)
If I may have a wish for future volumes: I would love to learn more about Hütter projects (e.g. Ostmark). And I know, Dan, you said, that you don´t do a Hü-211 for certain reasons, but please... I also would like to read about the Junkers projects; even the lesser knwon Ju-290 B, C and E. I never saw an official drawing of them.
Cheers and hugs, Athpilot

I have a few previously unknown Junkers designs for the next one, and a few known Junkers designs that I can shed some more light on. In particular, I have the EFo 11-02, EFo 11-03, EFo 11-04, EFo 11-05, EFo 11-22, EFo 12, EFo 13 and EFo 14/1.
Based on the document in which these appear, it rather seems as though projects previously given as 'EF 008', 'EF 011', 'EF 015' etc. (particularly in Nowarra) are actually EFo designs - because that's clearly how they appear in the Junkers document. On this basis, I'm not entirely sure that the EF and EFo series were actually different. It seems more likely that the EF series simply followed the numerical sequence already laid out by the EFos.
I have also discovered the four Junkers designs that competed against the Dornier P 231 (Do 335), Arado E 530, Me 109 Zw and unnamed Heinkel designs in the Schnellbomber competition. Two of these are already known but don't appear previously to have been linked to that competition (which is odd, because it's plain that this is what they were designed for) - the EF 109, EF 110, EF 111 and EF 112.

Hi! That is fantastic. Thanks for the informations. Nearly half of the mentioned designs are unknown to me. Can you include it in a future publication?
Warm regards!

I was certainly planning to include the Junkers Schnellbomber designs. I had actually forgotten about the EFo designs until I saw your post about Junkers projects, now I plan to include those too.
