indeed the downwards tail is an originality, but not completely unique :
Junkers did one for a Stuka inspired development I think in the 40s

I did not remember but you are very right: (Google confirmed) Junkers Ju-187 Super-Stuka (there is/was a Unicraft model of it):

Hansa Brandenburg W12 and W29 had downwards verticals tails as well.  I believe this was to improve firing arcs for the rear gunner.

Good idea! I imagine a P-61 turning to a Bv-141 layout to improve in flight the firing rearward arc... Thanks to make us dream... :icon_ninja: ;)

do you mean in-flight reconfigation of the airframe? that is wild  ;D

I will try to show it in 3 or 5 pictures (maybe with modified P-38 basis including a rear post), I have not enough skills to make a cartoon film of it... unless I succeed activating again the morphing software I had on the previous computer.

(thanks for this idea, I will call that plane the Erining, as a tribute)

Here is the IFA-38 Erining, In-Flight-Asymmetric, getting a perfect rear arc for the rear post, if required only:

Thanks ericr inventor! Maybe this is not very solid scale 1, but on paper or cartoon, this is easy... ;)

I used the floats for twin-float versions, so there remained the airframes :
i order to avoid uselessness, with the floatless MB411 and Ro.43, I built up this fly-tape scene :

That's really clever! You could probably put it up in an art gallery, write some pretentious text, price it at $10,000 and you'll probably have a bidding war.

Yes! And as the name of ericr in Art will become 1,000 times more famous than Miro or Picasso little-child-like painters, the value will grow up and up to reach $10,000,000 (or even more: 10,000,000 or 10,000,000), this is a good investment, with a 1 to 1,000 profit (almost) guaranteed!
