    Found this on another site.......

    http://www.warbirds.jp/kakuki/kyosaku/kyosaku.htm

    It's in Japanese and there are some other things besides aircraft, ships, tanks, but it is like the German Luft46 stuff.................. fantasy Japanese WWII Aircraft. There are also some other countries represented too.

    OK Michael............. did you know about this site?

    Great stuff. Are these 'real' designs (from WWII; napkin scribbles by real engineers) or modern imaginary vehicles? Regardless, much material here for model builders.

    I only looked at Japanese planes and they appear to fall into imaginary category. I went through the "X-planes of Japanese Army and Navy Air Force" but couldn't find any of them....

    Yeah they seem to be a bit fantasy............ but some of them could have actually been do-able and maybe even pretty good.

    Some of them would make neat models, as long as everyone knew they were not actually real or even planned.

    But Are they fantasy planes because were just a proyect or idea like this:

    http://www.luft46.com/arado/are561.html

    Or because the planes in the site are just fantasy designs by the site's owner?

    I'm thinking fantasy designs by the site's owner.................. if Michael could not find any info in his references on Japanese X-planes.............. that's good enough for me:grin:

    Fantasy designs by the site's owner.
