Ameisenbar





Here are some images of Monogram's 1/48 scale Dornier DO 335 Ameisenbar (Anteater). From Wikipedia "
The Dornier Do 335 was a World War II heavy fighter built by the Dornier company. The DO 335s performance was much better than other twin-engine designs due to its unique "push-pull" layout and the much lower drag of the in-line alignment of the two motors. The Luftwaffe was desperate to get the design into operational use, but delays in engine deliveries meant only a handful were delivered before the war ended.

Amazing! Gemany was very inventive in their "future" plans for the war. Might be a good thing it ended when it did...

Yes indeed, this aircraft almost reached 500 mph. Some say it was the fastest piston aircraft of WWII and heavily armed.So yes it is good it ended when it did otherwise the escalation would have just kept going.
