Like scenarios and profiles.  You did great.  Am seeing that 1/32 kit as a 1/72 transport.  And those spats,,, waa laa just right.

Thanks lads. Final bit of silliness (I promise!) ...

Top: "How had he ever been convinced to hire Dr-Ing Richard Vogt" Ernst Heinkel asked himself. Vogt was obsessed with flying boats and wouldn't shut up about tubular wing spars. Ein was für Dummkopf er war!

Now Vogt's ill-fated SA-162V flying boat modification was sunk to the bottom of the Lilla Värtan. 'Vatten' indeed.  Gott sei dank!

Bottom: With Vogt gone to America, Ernst was free to concentrate on a lightplane derivative of the Salamander. The SA-262KF (KurirFlyg) had convenient car-door style entry and twin flat-4 pusher engines replaced the unpopular turbojet of the original SA-162.

More Salamander silliness ...

1st scenario sticks with BdB's original piston premise but on a whole 'nuther scale. War's over and the Bad Guys won. Lufthansa has to replace Tante Ju quickly to satisfy Nazi egomania. Siegfried Günter responds with a supersized Salamander (aka the 'Lufthansa Lighter').

2nd scenario: Good Guys win, Heinkel bogs off to Sweden again like he did after WWI. After re-establishing Svenska Aero, he starts smuggling He-162 bits out of occupied Germany. The Swedish AF already has a better jet fighter and, unfortunately for Ernst, the market for jet-propelled light aircraft is quite small!

Great imagination.

Yowsa! My what lovely spats your Salamanders have there, apophenia!

I also really like your "scale-o-rama'd" airliner too!

That top one looks like a SAAB competitor for the Lake Buccaneer (got a ride one of those : thumbsup).

Bottom one looks more like it came from Piaggio  ;)

We need more civil profiles.

Thanks lads.

Agreed! And, yes, an innocent Piaggio Gull was parted out to create those last two  ;)
