    I am to be working on a project, and need referances/details to aid me.

    Also after going through the technical requests and scematics pages, it would appear there isn't any 280 stuff currently posted onsite; well, not that I could find within the last hour, so this would be aiding the community too.

    I wonder if there's any info on Heinkel's Manufacturing techniques/methods/style to get an idea what sort the finer details not shown might be like... e.g; panel structural assemblies design trend/style, wing skins and spars, rivet /or spot weld marks etc. Wasn't DIng Voigt (?spelling?) working for them once AFAIU?

    This is quoted from 'Aircraft of the Luftwaffe 1935-1945' by Jean-Denis G.G. Lepage (2009) and is the only real text I have found in my references. With such a rare subject more detailed info may be hard to find.

    Heinkel He 280

    "The single-seat, two-jet-engine fighter
    Heinkel He 280 was a remarkable achievement
    designed by engineer Max Müller from the
    Jumo Company. The second Heinkel jet aircraft
    had a span of 12 m (39 ft 5 in), a length
    of 10.20 m (33 ft 5.5 in), a height of 3.19 m (10
    ft 6 in) and an empty weight of 3,350 kg (7,386
    lbs). It had twin fins and retractable tricycle
    landing gear, and was powered by two Junkers
    Jumo 004A turbojets mounted under the wings
    which gave a maximum speed of 817
    km/h (508 mph) and a range of 615 km (382
    miles). Intended armament was three 20-mm
    MG 151 cannons, and a bomb load of 500 kg
    (1,102 lbs) for the envisioned He 280B fighter/
    bomber version. The prototype He 280 V1
    made its first flight in April 1941, and proved
    its excellent maneuverability and tremendous
    potential during a mock dogfight with a Focke-
    Wulf 190 in early 1942 which the He 280 easily
    won. Yet this attractive and advanced craft
    appeared at a time when the German leadership
    showed no interest in jet aircraft or any
    novelty that could not be used at once for a
    short Blitzkrieg campaign. The aircraft was
    plagued with engine troubles, but there are
    suggestions that the decision to reject the He
    280 was political. In any case, the Heinkel
    project was abandoned in favor of the Messerschmitt
    Me 262. Only nine prototypes were
    built and used in a variety of test flights which
    greatly contributed to turbojet-powered-aircraft
    research."
