Odd thought, immediately post-war developments of the Fw-190 with either the Centaurus or R2800 in place of the BMW engine.

R-2800 would be a better fit, the Centaurus is larger in diameter and heavier.

Ta-152 with tandem coupled DB engines and "beautified" tail fin.

The rear engine must come pretty close to the pilot's legs. Not that such things have bothered me either, when making similar design tweaks  ;D

Text: There was a what-if class at 08 Open in Stockholm a few weeks ago. The only thing these aircraft have in common is that none of them ever served in the Swedish Airforce. Apart from the Draken that never served in the USAF! Enjoy!

Nice!!
The Fw 190's wide-track landing gear would undoubtedly have made it a more stable platform than the Bf 109Z on a rolling and pitching carrier deck, don't you think Greg?

Where's the artwork from, may I ask?

Something about the carrier based Fw 190 drawing makes me think Japanese.
Overall style? The way the pilot is drawn?
