Hi folks,

i'm currently working on an intresting project, a Lippisch designed wingless fighter, done it from a single pic. the textures are done still to model the interior and some other details...

CnC are welcome, Cheers

Welcome Lippisch!

Interesting concept.
Does the tail have control surfaces?
Or does the craft have high pressure bleed off for directional control, similar to the Harriers 'puffer' jets?

If neither of these, then i'm aware, in the real world! you have a ballistic model concept,
similar to a dart, then again unlike a dart it has forward motive power, after all we ARE in the world of What If?

Paul. Watching with interest

The Lippsich aerodynes were fascinating aircraft, and some models flew (at least tethered). This crank-ish site: http://www.rexresearch.com/lippisch/lippisch.htm has some pictures and drawings of several of his designs.

This is wonderful Lippischh, thanks!
Would you invent the very first asymmetric aircraft without wings?

Very interesting design.  I checked out the link and it was really interesting. But, I just can't see how it would really fly ...  There are some really nice ideas on that link.

159 images, many of Aerodynes.  :)
