FS2004/2002 Blohm & Voss BV-222 "Viking". The Bv222 "Viking" was an aircraft of truly impressive size, and equally impressive characteristics. It also happened to be the largest flying boat to achieve operation status, and the second largest flying boat of the war. (Surpassed only by it's cousin, the Bv238.) The Bv222 was designed by Herr R. Schubert and Dr. Ing. Richard Vogt, and was tailored to meet a requirement issued in 1937 for the Lufthansa. The requirement was for a long-range passenger transport to operate from Berlin to New York. Furthermore, the aircraft would have to make the trip in 20 hours with at least 16 passengers (24 passengers were to be carried on shorter routes.) Two kinds of airframes and two kinds of example of painting are included in this file. by Kazunori Ito. 3.5MB
FS2004 OS2U Kingfisher USCG. The Vought OS2U Kingfisher, a scout and observation floatplane, began service with the Navy beginning in August 1940. The Coast Guard flew both the OS2U-2 and OS2U-3 models, the OS2U-3 being distinguished from the "2" model by having extra fuel tanks and better armor protection for the pilot and crew than the earlier production models. Beginning in March, 1942, the Coast Guard eventually acquired 53 of the OS2U floatplanes. Their primary purpose was to carry the burden of the Coast Guard's early anti-submarine efforts along the nation's coastlines and in the coastal waters. None of the Coast Guard operated floatplanes was credited with sinking an enemy submarine but many made rescues of survivors from torpedoed merchant ships.

FS2004/2002 Junkers Ju 187. Luft'46 Art Aircraft Series No.5. By the time of the Battle of Britain, the venerable Junkers Ju 87 design was beginning to show some of its shortcomings. A new, faster, better armed and better armored replacement was needed, so work was begun on the Ju 187 design. It kept some of the features of the earlier Ju 87, such as the cranked (gull) wing and two man crew, but added retractable landing gear and a very novel reversible vertical tail. One of the most unusual features was the movable vertical tail fin, which could be moved 180 degrees in flight, thus clearing the field of fire for the rear gunner. Although windtunnel models and even a full-sized mock-up was built, the project was canceled due to the fact that the projected performance was not that much of an improvement from the older Ju 87, and also that fighter-bombers such as the Fw 190F series could do the job as well as specialized dive bombers.
