'Happy New Year to you all'

I am after some assistance if I may regarding the design that Henschel submitted to the Reichsluftfahrtministerium (German Air Ministry, RLM) in late 1939 for a replacement for the Ju 52 transport.
Both Arado and Henschel were asked for rear-loading designs powered by two of the 1,193 kW (1,600 hp) BMW 801A/B radial engine.

Does anyone have any drawings or pictures of the design?
Was a prototype built?
was a mockup built?
Any specifications???


Thanks in advance

Regards
Pioneer

Here is the drawing (without load) of the Henschel Transport Flugzeug that I included in 1998 in my book "Forked Ghosts", now free in line.
