Sometimes I don't invent the aircraft or do the artwork myself, but I find an image so inspiring that it prompts me to take it and use it to create something else from it. That's what happened with this superlative CGI artwork of the Focke-Wulf "1000 x 1000 x 1000 B" tailless bomber project by Tim Cameron. My work represents an imaginary cover of the German (read: Nazi) propaganda magazine "Der Adler" dated November 1945 (which of course precludes the fact that the war would have gone on). Although I do not like the morbid fascination that many have about Nazi weapons — heck! some people really seem to wish the Germans had won on certain sites or forums! — I recognize however that some of the aircraft projects developed under Nazi rule were excellent. This is one of them, and Tim Cameron's artwork just screamed out for this re-creation. Hope you guys enjoy it!

I agree, but for a different reason. It seems as of there's no appreciation for the American, British, Russian, and Japanese designs from the same time!
I agree! Well there is some interest from a minority of aviation enthusiasts such as me for whom any great project deserves mention, whatever its origin... but somehow the books that sell are the ones about "Luftwaffe 1946", not "RAF 1946" or "USAAF 1946"!! There is a quite some interest for the Japanese unbuilt designs though.

It's funny how many Nazi experiments made their way into modern technologies.
The scariest one to think about is how experiments in death camps led to many modern medical practices.
Yeah, I agree with you totally. And yet it is still a very touchy subject. I remember getting the odd looks and unfriendly comments when I ventured to say that in the presence of supposedly educated people. The thought that we could owe something, anything to the misdeeds of the Nazis is so unbearable to many that it leads to denial, pure and simple. Very similar to the way people close their eyes and refuse to see the evidence when their beliefs are questioned (be it creationists confronted with dinosaur skeletons or patriots with obvious lies at the highest level of government).
