There were some competiters of P.108 before it has been chosen to produce. Some like Ca.204,Ca.211,Z1014,G.30B,S.404,and P.112 etc. those I never known, who can show me.
Posted here and elsewhere before;




P.112 developed from P.108 with different tail and nose.


I have all of them. Unfortunately, my scanner is out of order. If you have a couple of days' patience, I'll post them...

Hi, Paul! Yes, back at last.... Received all... And you? In the meantime my home PC went bang (HD....), so reconstructing the DB from backups.... Yesterday shipped another one, this is a surprise...

And now, for the all of you, the 1938-39 Long Range Bomber Competition projects...
