I kinda thought the production version nacelle turret was much further back and without the little windscreen? Looking at it more closely, the nose turret is much further forward, the cockpit glazing is different, the rear fuselage is a completely different shape and so are the fins on the ends of those slender booms. Actually, it's almost a completely different design.Wurger said:Noteworthy are the inverted gullwing and the slender booms. The engine nacelle turret remained more or less on the same site. Excellent find and thanks for sharing.

the Blohm and Voss P.216 was a tailless jet fighter Project.
The Focke-Wulf Hochleistungsjäger mit Jumo 222 E/F is pretty well known. I'm erring towards thinking that the Blohm & Voss P 207.01 might be the second design (maybe one we haven't seen before... a P 207.01-02? The four P 208s encompassed a selection of different engines, so why not the P 207?) and perhaps something like the Dornier P 247 for the third competitor? The only P 247 known at present seems to be the P 247/6, with a Jumo 213. I don't think it's inconceivable to imagine that one of the P 247/1-5 designs might fit the bill with a Jumo 222?Wurger said:I would love to see this paper bird in image !
Well, the Focke-Wulf design is on a different thread of this forum ('Focke-Wulf swept-wing pusher fighter with contra-rotating propellers'), the only B&V P 207.01 drawing I have is badly degraded and I'm not sure it will be possible to work out wing area from it. I've nothing on the P 247 (if it is that - the wingspan is a bit different). I'll dig the P 207.01 out later and post it up unless someone else can beat me to it?Wurger said:You are probably right, Dan, but will have to see to confirm it. How does it fit with the given wing área?
