I can see where you are coming from Malcolm.
It's a possibility.

Made a start on the 257.

I was wondering, if this had made a light fighter, what would have been the most likely armament and where would it have been housed/located?

I was thinking if not the rocket tubes as on the V4, then maybe a gun pod under each wing in a similar position?
Or am I barking up the wrong tree as usual ;) ?

Looking good! Can't wait to see this one finished. Oh, and congrats on the magnificent Junkers 'Stuka.'

Interesting Bill.
Did you find anything more re: digging?


I've done a bit more on the SK257. In progress.


Many thanks

Thanks Grey havoc and Bill.


Once I get one profile done, it's comparatively easy to do different versions.
It's a matter of changing the colour scheme layer(s), markings and adding or deleting hardware.
So I'll do one with the bombs and one stripped of armaments.

Speaking of schemes. I'm searching for apt markings.
Any suggestions to which units may have flown the 257 if it had made full production?


Many thanks

Jagdgeschwader 101 was one possibility.

Dos anyone have a good drawing or the specs on it.This all I can find on it.
An exploded view of the DB 603-powered SK V5 single-seat fighter which was to have employed o Skoda-Kouba-Banweise tubular-spar structure which offered both reduced weight and greater strength compared with orthodox spar structures. .

It doesn't look so different from the V-4, which evolved into the Sk 257...

If this is still actual - here is Justo's drawing. I don't remember where did I found it, but I think it was somethere in this forum. I hope Justo will not oppose.

Thanks hesham. I have temporarily merged all Skoda-Kauba related topics (there was a mix of projects in each of them) and later on we can split this one for the most prominent projects/prototypes.

Did some more merging from various threads that really covered similar or related types. Will split the SK 257 and V-4 later on.

Who knows how the original Skoda-Kauba flying bomb should look?


At least the V-1 without cockpit, but also without landing gear?
Is there anybody who has a drawing or something of the original project?
