Re: Re: Messerschmitt P.1101

The W-shaped wing was considered in some German projects, nevertheless I somewhat doubt those
twin engined fighter and destroyer designs with the project number "P.1101/xx". The P.1101 was a
design to a specification from 1944 for a single seat, single engine fighter, some of them are shown
on Luft'46. But I can see no reason, why this number would have been usewd for designs of a totally
different class.

It´s definitely a fake. The Messerschmitt AG has never considered a W-wing for any project (in contrary to Blohm & Voss).

Re: Re: Messerschmitt P.1101

Earlier at the forum already had this image with a variety of the Me P.1101 (unfortunately my attempt with the function search not led to nothing.) Maybe someone will be able to name the source of this scheme?

I'm still not sure about the P.1101 designation of the larger types. And to me, the "biplane" probably
is the P.1109 variable geometry/oblique wing type.

Re: Re: Messerschmitt P.1101

Does anyone have a Me P.1101 factory drawing depicting a FuG 248 Eule blind firing radar antenna? The early (and known to me) version of this interesting K-band radar had funnel aerials, but this reference makes me wonder:

http://www.cdvandt.org/SIGESO-Vol-4-Part-2.pdf

Search for the fifth pdf page, down below. It says "it was contemplated that the blind-firing radar antennae would be enclosed in plastic wing tips".
