I have found some Axis Powers post-WWII airliner projects while waiting for Skybolt's superb research on this fascinating topic.

1st class artwork coming from:

Jet Planes of the Third Reich. The secret projects. Volume 2. Manfred Griehl. Monogram. ISBN 0-914144-37-

To give comparison I have taken a contemporary US design, not an airliner but a military transport, the Convair Model 36 Transport derivative. I find that its configuration its very similar to the EF-100 transatlantic airliner

Indeed. And at least this design, in much evolved form, saw daylight as the XC-99.

Is there any more info on the BV 226?

The engines look a bit like turboprops?

BV-226 = BV P-200 the magnificient... I have a lot of inside renderings of it. Designer was Hamtmann.
FW-300 in reality was a derivative of the FW TOP (Trans-Ozean Project), tendered to the same competion of the EF-100. This night, folks..

You forget Junkers EF-230 airliner.

UUUUUHHH, please please don't start another querelle on the project numeration of Junkers' .... Numbers above EF-130 are VERY dubious at the best...
EF-131, 132, 140 and 150 were all Ju-287 developments done in URSS after the war. Sometimes the Baade 152 is called EF-152.
If the EF-230 is supposed to be the civilian version of the late war (February 1945) flying wing with a frontal intake for the jets.... ok, but the designation 230 is pure fantasy (at least for what is known)

Boxkite,

I was looking at "Der Passagier-Jet 152" from Holger Lorenz and I was thinking if could the 152 be considered a representative early jet airliner of a what-if WW2 victorious III Reich or not?
(I love the film based in the book Fatherland, the autobahn Berlin-Madrid it is one of the infinite details to show this 1964 Reich)

The Baade-152 seems dimnutive if you think what were the post war plans and visions of the Axis powers.. The Baade was an interesting aircraft but so "DDR" .... ;)
