Dornier Do 335 Mischantrieb - scratch conversioned 1/72

The Dornier Do 335 Pfeil ("Arrow") was a World War II heavy fighter built by the Dornier company. The two-seater trainer version was also called Ameisenbär ("anteater"). The Pfeil's performance was much better than other twin-engine designs due to its unique "push-pull" layout and the much lower drag of the in-line alignment of the two engines. The Luftwaffe was desperate to get the design into operational use, but delays in engine deliveries meant only a handful were delivered before the war ended.
 To set up the highspeed of the Do 335 it was planned to install a turbo-engine in the back of the aircraft replacing the middle-motor. The project became the designation Do 435 with an HeS 011 jet-engine. This engine had not been rady until the war ended so the concept had to be tested with an BMW 004 turbo-engine. Allied intelligence reports from early May 1945 make a report of a spotted Do 435 (Do 335 Mischantrieb/mixed engines) at the Dornier factory airfield at Löwenthal.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia & Die Deutsche Luftrüstung 1933 - 1945 ( Heinz J. Nowarra ) &

Ich lege großen Wert auf die Feststellung, daß die Symbole der NS-Zeit ( Swastikas ) lediglich einer originalgetreuen Wiedergabe und Darstellung der Modelle dienen. Eine politische Einstellung / Gesinnung kann und sollte nicht davon abgeleitet werden !

Den allgemein geltenden Gesetzen und Richtlinien, die zwar eine Ausstellung von NS-Symbolen erlaubt, aber eine Verherrlichung verbietet, wird somit entsprochen ! 

 I attach great importance to the statement that the symbols of the Nazi period ( Swastikas ) serve only a faithful reproduction of the models. A political attitude can and should not be derived from it. The generally applicable laws and regulations, which allow an exhibition of Nazi symbols, will therefore be satisfied.
