    Great books I have the whole series too.

    I found the info on that link and I have several other books that talk about it. Project C was just to be a continuation of the A and the B. It was basically the same thing with modifications and without the jet engine bomber. It never materialized either though. All it was meant to be was a continued development and did not happen.

    It would've been pretty sweet if they actually built it, it looks pretty cool.

    A bit late, but ever since I first saw this request a bell has been ringing at the back of my mind; I knew I'd seen something about a Daimler-Benz project somewhere, but couldn't put my finger on it. Well, I've just found it! It's not what you'd call the most definitive or authoritative bit of evidence I've ever seen, but they must have got their information from somewhere. Here it is:

    Here's a small image of what the project may have looked like.

    It was a far fetched project that more then likely never would have left the ground.

    so i guess project a, b, and prototype c were meant to be "carriers" and e + f were were parasite bombers that launced themselves off the carriers. and i know that there wasnt supposed to be a project d.

    BTW i heard about it in the xbox game "secret weapons over normandy". its like the final boss in the game and is absolutely HUGE.

    hey someone whos good at airplane model building should try to recreate it *hint hint hint hint hint*.

    Yeah it is the last boss in the game. It is acutally quite a fun game, not realistic but fun.

    sorry but the only pictures that could help you build a model are the ones provided from the other people. But if you were to rent the game and get to the final boss and pause while fighting it, you could get a good look at it I think. Dont worry though, the game is pretty easy. But thats if you have an xbox or ps2 ( I think its for ps2 too, i just can't remember). Otherwise if anyone else could provide pictures that would be great.
