BV-212 with kettenkraftrad 1:35

Blomh & Voss P.212 

Dr Vogt design presented for the "Emergency Fighter Program" in February 1945, the Blohm & Voss P.212 using the same design of steel air-intake / load-bearing structure as the Bv 211, it had a number of interesting features, pressurized cockpit, wings swepted at 40 degrees, a fuel load giving four hours of flight and a large varied armament load.
