Luftwaffe Projects - Volume 9

  • move
It’s done. It’s completed. Volume 9 represents the longest gap between volumes since I started doing them. Apart from taking a somewhat ‘elastic’ break from profiling immediately after Volume 8 was published on site in April 2011, I wanted to follow it with some more ‘less well-known’ and obscure projects and this has taken longer in searching for data and references than I than I initially thought it might. Its been a long and winding road but happily I found a good number that are included here.

To summarise, there are two projects I’ve done before but thought they warranted a ‘from scratch’ redraw. There are four that are well documented but I’ve seen little in the way of profiles showing what they may have looked like should they have entered service. There are also two projects that are known, but scale drawings have only recently been discovered. The rest are profiles of projects that have incomplete data and therefore have needed some interpretation. And as an end-piece I’ve included a keyline drawing of a newly discovered aircraft that is currently in debate.

At this point I must state that throughout working on this volume I’ve had massive help, advice and encouragement from members of www.secretprojects.uk.co

Due to the very nature of some of these projects and their lack of information the following texts may well be patchy with a chance of there being missing information, but I’ll do my best.

Cheers Peter My pleasure. It's really impressive to see how your artwork increases steadily in sophistication with each new volume. I'm intrigued by the mysterious Wn 19 - it does just look like someone's simplistic sketch of a '109, so it'll be really interesting to see if any firm information ever surfaces... All the best Rowan

Many thanks JPTRR, nice to see you are still around site. Rowan, should I learn of anything more on the Wn 19, I'll definitely share any findings. I'm sure there's a lot more to be discovered. P

Great work as always Peter, It's always nice to see a different take on the colour schemes and / or just to see these projects in colour. I do like the little Skoda 257 and the Fw-222.004, and then you tease with the last line 'Italian' for Vol.10, I can't wait, Re.2007 perhaps

Wonderful stuff, as usual, Pater Do you have any profiles of aircraft that saw combat during WWII (Spit, 109 etc)?

Wonderful and inspiring, Von Flitzer!

Very interesting stuff, I hope to see more in the future. Thanks for all the effort you put into this.

Many thanks, I'm just enjoying myself really. Luciano, Re2007....we'll see . Mal. I did do some profiles of some British aircraft that saw actual combat. It was years ago now but they were published on site. I've not done any more since, apart from some early jets, as there are so many accomplished artists out there that cover these already, I've tended to seek areas that are less well populated if you see what I mean. Tah muchly Peter

"....it was the first jet combat aircraft, the first twin-jet aircraft and the first jet aircraft to go beyond mock-up stage." not so "first" considering and other constructors of jet airplanes before 1941
