Hi guys ;),

I`ve found this very interesting articles on aerodynamics and Adolf Kuechmann`s work. They refer a 1944 fighter project named by the americans "Küchemann Coke Bottle". Does anyone have a drawing of it?

P.s. Notice the interesting patent drawing application by Junkers.

Wurger talks of German fighter design, dubbed Coke Bottle by PaperClip guys, not Küchemann carrots as those on Convair 990

Hi Justo ;),

that same illustration is present at the second link I stated in the first place. But it does not looks like a fighter. Most probably it is not the definitive design ( besides, Kuchemann isn`t mentioned in the patent application ), but it shows what would be the overall fuselage appearance.

Although i'm slightly confused about this thread, is this:

http://www.aerospaceweb.org/question/aerodynamics/q0240.shtml

any help?

The
Illustrated Encyclopedia Of Aviation And Space
(Various Authors, 1971)
AFE Press, USA
Library of Congress Catalogue Card No. 68-10413

suggests that it was Whitcomb who came up with the Area Rule - in the 1950's - not Kuchemann
