Apophenia said:The site mentioned by Moonbat also has images of Hispano Aviación's HS-50 mock-up at San Jacinto.
Can anyone tell me if the HS-50 was ever built? Was this identical to the Dewoitine D.600 (ie: was the D.600 designed for Spain)? Or was the HS-50 simply a D.600 derivative?
Maveric said:Do you have also a drawing and technical data for the Dewoitine D.600?
Apophenia said:Many thanks Pepe and Justo. The short-nosed version is interesting (suggesting an engine other than the HS12Z, perhaps?).
Anyway, I guess "del abortado caza" says it all. Nice mockup though ;D
Justo, I'd guess that the 'colourized' 3-view was based on your, better-quality version.
Apophenia said:Like lucamax, I had a stab at 'reconstructing' the I.Ae.26 fighter. A few problems popped up with that original 3-view drawing.
The major difficulty is that the engine and propeller spinner do not scale with that of the Bf-109E. Since the exhaust outlets and supercharger intake should be relatively constant, I've used those to scale the DB601A with the airframe. As can be seen, this results in a noticably shorter forward fuselage.
I fear that we must conclude that the original I.Ae.26 3-view drawing was crudely rendered.
