This is the Discopter concept by Alexander G. Weygers
a polymath Dutch-American artist

The Discopter concept was proposed to US military during WW2 (with no interest)
And patent the design for the "Discopter" in January 1944 with the U.S. Patent Office.

Reminds me of René Couzinet aerodyne from the 50's. Often mistaken for a nazi flying saucer. :(

According the Web page about Alexander G. Weygers
He invented the Discopter in 1927.

The Couzinet aerodyne was a concern of the US Air Force. Its association with anything "nazi" is an internet invention. However, there is evidence the Germans did work on similar aircraft during the war. They also read American magazines.
