Finally I can show you folks something "new" - Part 4 of my Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe series :)
The following images were made almost a year ago for John Baxter's latest book, [url=http://www.luft46.com/jbtal2.html]The Alternate Luftwaffe, Volume II[/url]. More info about Joh Baxter's books can be found here: [url]http://www.luft46.com/jbbooks.html[/url]
The aircraft depicted is the Messerschmitt Me P 1091a Stufe III, which was a mid-war design for an extreme high altitude interceptor. It was effectively a stretched-up Bf 109, adapted for high altitude combat. The P 1091 never flew, but was further developed into the equally bizarre Blohm & Voss Bv 155.
Here is a sepia-toned version of it. I don't know which one I prefer myself :)
And another view, showing both Messerschmitts intercepting an XF-12 Rainbow reconnaissance aircraft:
Here are the previous three parts of this series:
One more part to come... soon! :D
