The Lippisch P12 was to be a liquid fuel ramjet powered high speed interceptor, it was an alternate design to the P13a. There are no accurate three views of it so i modeled it according to this genuine drawing tinyurl.com/nuqjoqa  and used a color similar to that of a Me163 Komet.

Hope you like it!

I (and my father even more so) am VERY glad this craft never flew in combat !!   Halloween fella ( Universe )  ; Dad flew for the allies ....

I had a toy plane when I was a child that was identical to that, though maybe it was orange.

The P12 and P13a continue to fascinate me to this day, even after seeing/finding illustrations about them in literature many years ago.

Wonderful work.

Very much cheers to you and yours.

Its would've been the first supersonic aircrafts, how cool is that in fact there's still another P12 which has more swept wings and a little rudder at the trailing edge I'll maybe make that one too.

The problem would've been that, at supersonic speeds, they would've had a turn radius the size of Germany! Also, with such a speed differential between them and their targets, they'd never hit anything. The 262, because of its speed and guns, only had around 1-2 seconds of firing time before pulling away. And even that was already too short.

You have a point. Nevertheless, for an interceptor flying at supersonic speeds to quickly get close to the threat is a great benifit ; then it could be a little slower when it's about shooting them down.

Oh, just the fact that even the P13a would have seriously pushed the speeds and it was burning coal!

"Professor Lippisch built a super sonic jet! Made of wood! That ran on coal!... no, there wasn't a box of scraps..."

:D

Looking forwards to any and all of your works. :)

Much cheers to you and yours.
