Of course not!pometablava said:It is not a supersonic Me328 I understand it right?
that like the V-1 Zwilling pure Fiction !Wingknut said:I was also put off when I looked up the model-company responsible for the conversion kit and found that they offer a conversion for a "Heinkel He162Z Volkzwilling". Maybe I shouldn't stick my neck out too far but surely a "Zwillng" He-162 is fictitious? (The only references I can find seem to class it as a "What if?" modeller's project.)
Whoa. That's not true. The pulsejets could be used for climbing to height and then they, along with the wings, could be jettisoned. It would probably require a larger airframe to get high enough, but supersonic speeds could be obtained in a prolonged dive.Orionblamblam said:You're not going to get a supersonic *anything* powered by cheap pulsejets.
Sorry no more images of P.1073A in my filesWingknut said:Excellent posts, Justo - as ever.
At the risk of going slightly off-topic, my understanding is that the origins of the Me 328 / Me P.1079 project lay in a study for a heavy bomber (P.1073A) which was to carry three parasite jet fighters (P.1073B). Below is the only image I can find that shows both the P.1073A carrier and (hard to spot at bottom right) the P.1073B parasite. (I also attach a three-view of the P.1073B. Both images are quite easy to find though.)
Is there any more information about that "star trek" version of me 328? Because all the references I can found are about the V1/V2 version which it's in the drawing the "A" versionhesham said:Also,the Messerschmitt Me.328.
Finally found my way back to this thread and burst out laughing.Orionblamblam said:By that reasoning, one can claim manned supersonic flight powered by *balloons.* However, one must use common sense at some point.
They must do this, it's logical way, the two Argus pulsengine need 150 mph (240 km/h) to start operate.Jemiba said:The drawing has the caption "Complete model with base plate, railway embankment and take-off trolley".
So I would assume, it was meant to test launching the Me 328 directly from railway tracks. Haven't heard
of this method before, but it seems logical.
