This group gave me the idea to make a floatplane version of the Me-262Z, in her different versions:

Those are wonderfully imaginative, Tophe!

I think I like the one with three engines  and the "double" T-tail best, but they're all incredible concepts, mon ami!

I will not build them, this is just a drawing. And here is the Clifferschmitt B-262W for tourists 1949:

Awww, I'd love to see one or all of these in plastic at least at some point.  Maybe further down the road?

Love the Clifferschmitt B-262W, thanks man  :)

Now those are thought-provoking Tophe - cheers!

The thought they provoked is what about a flying boat version, made by grafting a second fuselage upside down onto the bottom of the first, and then moving the engines to either  an overwing or A-10-style position. Gimme while and I'll knock up a profile of it.

Nice!
And you are right, a Me-262 does not need to be Zwilling to be floating...
