    Disagree - the Focke Wulf project had a circular intake and a tail - this looks like a tailless design. How about a Heinkel P.1078C - one of the entries in the 1944 Emergency Fighter competition.

    Almost a pity it wasn't a Ta183 Huckelbein - a really nice model series would be Ta183 Design II / Design III followed by Pulqui II and Mig-15. If you believe the Luft46 site they are all interrelated designs. The Pulqui II was designed by Kurt Tank using the Ta183 experience and a Nene engine. It's claimed the Mig-15 was based on the Ta183 with a redesigned fuselage to accomodate the RD-45 engine (Nene copy) with a modified tail to avoid the super stall problems with the T-tail.

    I wonder how Heinkel intended to overcome the problem with longitudinal instability associted with the tail-less design and short fuselage.
