Now available on Shapeways: http://shpws.me/LS2m

It's quite a big aircraft and it's unconventional shape means that it needs quite a lot of material to print so it's more expensive than my other designs :(

Well done sir! You have an amazing production rate, it blows me away. So have you created any purely of your own design?

Thanks !

You have an amazing production rate, it blows me away.

It varies, the 404 took me three days as it's poorly documented and a very unusual/complex shape that took me several goes to model satisfactorily whilst the Stopa-Caproni is quite simple and I had some clear plans and photos to work from so it only took me a few hours.

So have you created any purely of your own design?

Not yet, I may not as the 1930s was an amazingly inventive era for aircraft designs and there's a huge backlog of real-ish world designs to work through, some of them far more outlandish than anything I could imagine (EG the 404).

As usual, great job Nick.

If you are looking for more inspiration (I did not check your page, so apologies if I name planes that are already there):

BMW Schnellbomber II (but you put the engines on the wings and make it smaller so that it can be used as a Hellhound proxy)
Messerschmitt Me 509
He P.1076

All very strange birds.
Malphas, over and out

    Me 509 and Me 309 are both interesting.
    BMW Schnellbomber II less so as it's not got a *proper* engine.
    He P.1076 is a maybe but apart from the forward swept wings it looks pretty conventional. Technically it would be a nightmare to maintain.

The Focke-Wulf Fw 187 might make a decent proxy for the Hellhound https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Focke-Wulf_Fw_187
or even my Miles M22 http://shpws.me/Cyfv

If you don't find radial engines (rather than sissy water cooled ones) then try the Grumman G-34 http://shpws.me/Dc7s

I stumbled across the Twin P-40 at wikipedia.

Here's my interpretation: http://shpws.me/LXtt

I'm calling it the 'Twister' because it's American and looks like the Westland Whirlwind.
