Hi Maveric,

nice pics. I can not add nothing more on the subject, but perhaps some of our collegues own this book, which I believe is a good one and could be of some assistance:
"Deutsche Lastensegler",authored by Heinz Mankau and Peter Petrick, editec by Motorbuch Verlag.
 
Warplanes of the Third Reich by William Green ISBN 0-88365-666-3 has some info about these. Nice photo of Go 242 A-2 with a Ka 430 tail mod to evaluate its integral loading ramp - unfortunately unable to scan at the moment.

Regards,
Barry
 
In "Deutsche Lastensegler" by Heint Mankau and Peter Petrick, a drawing of
the early layout of the Ka 430 is shown. Main difference is the tail win twin fins.

I`ve just ordered the book in question. Too many references to it in this and other threads, so it is worth the buy.

Hopefully for a price of not more than 12,- € ? That's what it is sold for on book bargain
tables here in the moment. Griehls "Deutsche Flugzeugbewaffnung" even was down to
just 9,99 € ...
