The text says, that nothing is known about the author of those drawings /proposals,
maybe it was drawn as an exercise or degree dissertation (No, no clue if then the student
would have passed his examination ... ;) ).
It may have been intended as a kind of flying observation station, which could float with
folded wings on the sea, although without a planing bottom it may have been unable to
take-off from the water. The engines shown look like Hirth HM 508C with 270 hp each.
Definitely not enough to lift that pontoon with up to 3 tanks on it !

Only small note,


the first drawing was a landplane and not flying boat.

The first desing seems to have some point of contacts with countemporary Heinkel projects (look at the fuselage shape, elliptical wing, etc.).

Maybe, maybe itwas intended as an amphibium. The sketches show different tail planes,
the wing is principally the same and perhaps not only foldable, but of variable geometry,
as the 3-view shows 3 different shapes.

The wings is described of bird-like shape, not only elliptical, but with protruding leading edge. The
nearly identical look of those 3 (?) projects could be misleading, of course and their dimensions
grossly different. Nevertheless, carrying such a pontoon and 3 tanks (even it it would just have been
Typ I tanks) quite probably would have overstretched this design, so hesham is quite right, I think:
This section is the right place ! ;)

Those drawings obviously were found together with slides and photos (no relation to aviation is
mentioned) in or around Esslingen at the river Neckar and no connection to Heinkel is mentioned.

My dear Jemiba,


I thought that too,and if we search in Google patents,we could see this designs,specially
it's familiar to me !.
