    And I thought that my Hurricane with Partisan markings will be unusual entry in this Group Build. Wow! Great choice VB and educational too. I had no idea that Germans operationally deployed helicopters in Mediterranean theater. Will fallow your work on this model closely.

    Fantastic! I don't think I've ever seen a helicopter modelled for any form of WW2 competition or Group Build, well done on the choice mate! Really looking forard to seeing this develop, although it'll be so small I might need new glasses!
    I'm not that genned up of the Flettners, so don't know which one I saw in a museum years ago (open framed vesion), but it sure was small, even close up!

    I read that there was a plan to have an obsever behind the engine. Does anyone have a photo or drawning of the second seat?

    Great pictures there, Paul and Wojtek.
    I haven't noticed until seen on this larger photos. This thing had two two blade rotors next to each other!? Wonder which type of engine did it use? (Must admit I don't know much about German helicopters.)

    Thanks for link DB, some good stuff there. When I saw that there were two blades I figured they must have been counter rotating, just was surprised to see they were on two separate shafts. Well, if they had been on a single shaft that would be way ahead of its time, I guess...

    COOL, What is worse, strapped down without a canopy or sitting backwards in the tail? It is one step away from an utra light. We could sell rides at airshows. :)

    Did Wright brothers fly sitting in hermetic cockpi? The first steps are never easy.
