Hmm, if you're looking for something interesting from the pre-war period that actually made it to prototype form but was not adopted, here are a couple:

Blohm & Voss Ha 137
Richard Vogt's single-seat dive bomber with MGs or 20mm cannon in the wheel spats. Luftwaffe went with the bigger, two-seat Junkers 87, but I've always thought the smaller, handier Ha 137 could have become the German Il-2.

Henschel HS 127
This pretty prototype couldn't carry the load of the winning Junkers Ju 88, but it was fast and maneuverable and could well have become the German Mosquito or Beaufighter.

For unbuilt designs there is so much out there from Unicraft and others that you'll have to do some research to find something marketable that's not already available.

Cheers,

Matthew
