  1. We've had a number of factors conspiring against us this last few days that has resulted in a long queue of new members waiting to be able to post. I've just spent the last hour clearing down two pages, so if you were waiting to post, you should be able to now. If not, drop me a line and we'll get you sorted Thanks for your patience
  2. For some time now I have been looking for something bonkers enough to go with my Haunebu model that I built last year and shortly before Telford I found something that I feel will fit the bill nicely. Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the BMW Flugelrad 1 V-1! Believe it or not, this thing actually was built and did fly, albeit very badly, from Prague-Kbley airfield in the latter half of WW2. The aircraft was a sort of jet powered autogyro for want of a better description. The exhaust from it's engine being deflected upwards onto a ring of variable pitch fan blades to give the lift required for take off. The jet blast deflector was also used to control the aircraft directionally and here it seems was the weak point of the design. According to eyewitness reports, the aircraft was able to leave the ground quite quickly and flew for about 300 meters but was very hard to control longitudinally, resulting in some very hard landings. The latter addition of a fin and rudder to the design failed to have any significant improvement on this issue. Although I have yet to find a photograph of the machine, The project was subject to intense secrecy, the German Magazine "Flugzeug" does do a very good special on these German disc aircraft designs and contains some good descriptions of the machine as well as some drawings. Reports differ as to the colour scheme on this aircraft. One states that it was unpainted whereas another says that it was yellow. My instinct leans towards NMF with some areas of yellow to improve the machine's visibility although a camouflaged What If? finish could be fun as well and I am sure you guys will have your own ideas about this! A civilian scheme for Eva Hitler's new sporty little runabout perhaps or Whacky Races 1946 style? I have had the Unicraft kit of this type for a few years now but not wanting to spend the rest of my life filling bubbles in the resin, I decided to go with the much better cast Planet version. What actually gets added to this build will depend largely what more I can turn up by was of reference material. My hopes aren't high here but we can but try. If all goes well I may add the Planet kit of the Flugelrad V2 to this thread. Apparently this was also built but suffered from the same control issues as the V1 As always, all comments, sensible or otherwise are welcome. Thanks for looking Martian
