Hey Brick, welcome! I'd suggest any SLR with a tripod and a decent lightbox. I don't build IRL, so I don't have much experience with pictures of Lego, but I'm sure a lightbox+tripod+SLR would work fine.

A Digital SLR camera is a must, and a lightbox is a perfect combo for taking perfect pics. Tripods are a good idea to but are not as necessary with most new digital SLRs. At close range they compensate nicely for camera shake.

I use a Canon Powershot SX40 hs

Use sunshine or two white LED bulbs for lighting, sunshine being preferable. To fix shaky hands, use Lego stacks or small boxes to prop the camera up, and set the camera on 2-second self timer. That will keep your finger pressing the button from jiggling the camera when the picture takes.

That's what I always do. That solves shaky hands. For bright pictures I also adjust the shutter time manually, so even in darker conditions the pics will be just as bright if Sun was shining.

Guys, when will the technology progress to the 1960s? Although my first tank, the Centaur, will be based on the Centurian, for its reliability, and ability to be upgraded throughout the lifespan of the group, my main tank is going to be the Cerberus MBT, based on the mighty chieftan of the1960s. I will start building both now, but when can I produce the Cerberus?
If you don't know, the chieftan was designed in the late 50s and entered production in the 60s. It was the most powerful and well protected tank in the world when it was built, hampered only by a horrifically unreliable multi fuel engine that I will replace with a good old diesel. It had a laid back driving position, allowing highly sloped frontal armour with effective thickness of almost 400mm. The turret was also incredibly well angled and armoured, with great gun depression for hull down fighting. It had a 120mm smoothbore cannon, which fired HESH and APFSDS rounds, able to destroy any contemporary soviet tank. The suspension was very rugged, being a hortsman spring design, but gave little comfort to the crew, although the gun was stabilised, so it could still fire on the move. If you look at tanks like the chieftan , they have reached an incredible leel of design complexity using solely analogue systems, and it is amazing to look at the design solutions that allowed them to incorporate modern ideas into a 1960s design.

You can't get better unless you try. ;)

A large part of your issue is that you seem to not even try to make designs based off of modern technology, instead basing it off of older tech. Learning how to learn to build larger fighters would also be a good idea.

If you stick with 50's tech you an expect to be easily conquered in roughy 3-5 months from now, the ways this game works discourages sticking with one group of designs the entire game.

The modern era didn't start in the 60s.
You should be fine, Willis jeeps were used in the 70s, and most designs in the 60s were similar to the 50s.
70s "Vietnam" could still be easy. At the most just slap an IR looking sights on your tanks, and call it a day.

You only need to start to worry in the 80s, round lights, and styling's since WWII lost style. 70s weapons should still cut it so no biggy.

You should look up 1960s, and 70s era weapons, they shouldn't be that hard compared to modern, and may be easier to get into than you think.

I usually build my creations after being inspired by real designs. An example would be watching a movie like apocalypse now, and the building a little bird. Or I just go on a website like Military Today. After I get the idea I change a few things so its no longer the same design. "like giving the little bird a full bubble canopy."

No for this very reason. Its simply easier making the creations from scratch than scrolling through multiple pages.
Remember that BL is like EBAY for Legos and while its easy to find parts, and everything is organized you will have to buy from multiple people. It saves me money when I need select parts like an order black treads, an bulk cheese slopes but at the most I only buy from 2, or 3 people.

I think this will be a much better environment for me, the other gamers I've always played with are quite hostile and unforgiving. You all seem like a much calmer, nicer bunch. :3 Hope I'm right.

Welcome to our group, I hope that you find that your thoughts about us are correct. :)

Couldn't you do this in D&C 2, also I'm not sure on if I will have enough time to do the map in D&C 2.
I usually use Photoshop to make it but other programs are available. I suggest avoiding paint as it can cause a lot of problems.

If you need a the blank version I can mail it to you, also you can download it on the homepage.

I suggest starting with the default map now, and I can make the added landmasses in the next few months. After which players can have new land to fight over.

After doing some considerable work on D&C II's Iron Predator Shock tank, I have realised that I am about to exhaust my supplies of useful dark grey parts. The turret is almost complete and looks epic, and so does the front of the hull and a small section of the rear, but I don't think I can complete the centre section and engine bays with my current stock. Of course I am using every trick in the book to reduce usage of parts in short supply, like SNOT to cut down on tiles, but I will have to make a big parts order to get it done. : (
I swear after this, no more super projects. If it didn't look so awesome I would have scrapped it already, I don't actually need a vehicle this big!

Due to my computer being truly bad, I have never got used to LDD. Also, it restricts many building techniques and I find I don't build as well with infinate pieces. Most of my good techniques stem from finding solutions to lack of parts. Anyway, a good IRL model is better than an LDD equivelent.

Yes, I agree. I'd rather have physical Lego any day, but seeing as how my Lego is over 100 miles away from me (3 hours by train, 2 by car on a good day), I have no choice but to build in LDD. At least it lets me do something other than light bley.

In case you didn't know already LDD files can be rendered to make them look better. It's obviously not necessary but the end result looks much more like "real" Legos.

Aye, the big sphess cathedrals are for 23rd Century, a sci-fi theme that's a tribute to 40K and Starship Troopers at heart. Though we're drawing a lot on Dune (which 40K also draws heavily on, mind you) and other things. So we decided for the Coalition (the "bad guys") that their best ships should have a look that calls back to 40k, but is our on tank on it. Most evidently in a vertical, downward pointing prow shield instead of a horizontal, forwards-pointing prow. I've always been more of a sci-fi person, but I enjoy building things of our world too.

I love anything that has an epic melodic synth riff. Thus I like hardstyle trance. But my favorite groups are all classic Euro disco from the 80's- Laserdance, Koto, Marco Rochowski, obscure stuff. I encourage y'all to check it out.

Besides that I love classic rock and heavy metal. :3 Everything from 60's rock and roll up to Black Metal and Death Metal. My favorite rock bands are still Van Halen and AC/DC, though.

I like the idea of specialised armies. My suggestion would be to have 4 categories:

1. Not specialised army. It would use the current stats
2. Ground army. All ground vehicles get x% boost in production
3. Naval army. All naval vehicles get x% boost in production
4. Air force army. All aerial vehicles get x% boost in production

First you would choose what army you want. After that you can't change it. If you choose a specialised army, the other two gets less production by x%.

So we need to figure out the numbers and after that we would have a pretty simple system.

But if someone chooses a naval army, and they get a decrease in air production they might not be able to make enough fighters to fill the cariers they are making. Or what if you are a land locked country, im pretty sure you would like to give up naval production to get a boost, but you might not want to lower the one of the other two.

I'm all over the place myself.

I immensely regret selling my Matilda, but I needed the cash for Panther II, and wasn't about to sell my MANther, VK Leopard or StuG for it (StuG lyfe all the way, baby). Gotta say though, VK Leopard is one comfy tank. After a 15 losing streak because of incompetent teams, nothing beats sitting back and spotting 10 enemies while arty and TDs eat them for breakfast.

I started on the german line to reach the King Tiger via the Pz III/IV, a longer but more fun route. Patch 8.6 cut me off just before I got the 30.01 H, so I unlocked the 30.01D and dropped the medium line. Now I have started the german heavy line again, via the excruciating D.W.2. When I have the money I will get back on the german fast medium line. Leopard looks beast. I do consider myself a better heavy tank driver, but that is a lot down to a very laggy PC and heavy tanks allow you to fight at a slower pace. When I dont have lag I do very well in faster mediums like the pz III/IV and M7, although I dont like it that much because the turret traverse is aweful, the turret ring gets auto knocked out and the guns are aweful.When I get the T71 I expect great things...

I'd be happy to. The only thing is that you only get one choice of camera positioning. This isnt my choice though, it works by rendering at the position of the camera when you last saved the lxf unless you give me specific coordinates for the camera. Don't worry though, I'll make good choices. :)

I found it appalling. It is the only in game vehicl to have 0º of gun depression. You may not be aware you are on a very shallow slope but when an enemy comes you cannot lower the gun at all and will certainly die.
The hetzer with the 105mm is beyond OP at tier 4, the only thing that scares me in my matilda. The T18 used to be OP but it got nerfed and lots of things kill it easily now. I love my Jagdpanther although I accept I am not that good at driving it. I use the Pak 43/L71 gun which is its historic armament. The damage is lower than the 105mm but the accuracy saves my life sometimes and the rate of fire is great. The 88mm is great for long range sniping which I prefer due to average armor, the 105 being better in the assault gun role. I would learn how to use the 105mm but I am saving up and while learning I would waste thousands of credits on ammo.

The only thing I fear more than a Hetzer at tier four is... nothing. Hetzers are priority targets for me. I bought my Matilda back after this thread; I stopped firing at the D.W.2 and exposed my side to him to stop a Hetzer that was coming at me. Heh, D.W.2 is so useless it couldn't even penetrate my side armor. Matilda is my tankfu~

Also, that feel when I've got 93k xp on muh Panther II and I'm still only 57% of the way there to my E 50. I could have gotten further on the Sunday double xp for victories, but I had an essay to do... At least it's not a stock ISU or IS grind, though.

I am grinding the D.W.2 and I just checked, it is a 23% win rate with a 0.45 K/D ratio. It needs premium ammo to damage anything with more than 50mm of armor and is so bad it gets preferential matchmaking (which doesn't help) I was about 5000 xp away from the Vk 30.01H via the longer but more fun Pz III/IV route and then they split the tech tree. The only advantage of waiting so long to restart the german heavy route is that I am now experienced at driving heavy tanks and will do everything right from tbe start. I have my crew skills planned out.

I'm very glad I got up the Panther line before they changed everything. VK 3001 H tier six medium with schmalturm and L/70 was an utter beast, even on tier eight matches. It did a very good job of preparing me for the less than glorious Panther... which had the same alpha, only got higher pen. Oy vey. VK 3002 M is the real Panther, if you ask me.

The best part of the change was that I can go to the King Tiger from the Panther, which I did. Probably not the best idea, because apparently Tiger I is good now.

Just because it's precipitating a lot this winter doesn't mean the climate isn't changing. In fact the reason why the polar vortex came down further than it was supposed to was because the melting ice caps caused a sea salinity changed, which caused air current change. Everything chain reacts. It's not global "warming," that's an inappropriate name. It has just as much to do with the cold as it does the heat.

For the past few thousand years, Earth has been in a rare state of not too warm, but not too cold climates. A Goldilocks zone. Earth has gone through these before but they don't last long. Scientists aren't completely sure what's going to happen next- Global Climate Change might be speeding up our transition into a new ice age, or it might heat up the earth to inhospitable levels. No matter what the weather is doing, we know for sure the polar ice caps are melting. The Antarctic ice shelves are collapsing at an astonishing rate, and the Arctic ice is almost gone. The Polar wildlife is suffering because of this, Polar Bears are now having to move inland and find new food sources (which isn't easy AT ALL thanks to humans hunting moose and caribou) because the ice platforms they used to hunt seals from are all melting. Thanks guys, my favorite creatures on the planet are starving thanks to your love of fancy cars and MUH INDEPENDENCE TO GO WHEREVER I WANT ON MUH INTERSTATE.

You have an external hard drive, i have a secret collection of hard drives cannibalized from old computers (and used for storage) stashed in the nearby forest in an ammo case, in case my house burned down or someone burglarized my house. That right their is safe. (and paranoid)

I can't hit people yet even if I wanted to, NA is a large continent and we are spread out. Well... technically I could bomb my neighbors but that would be pointless. Give me a few months and war in NA is much more likely.

I thought about it, but for the most part I didn't really care enough. I do most of my Minecraft on the Xbox with friends, and my best Ldd creations have already been photographed. Its not like ldd creations are any different than a photograph, simply in the fact that I'm done with them now, and have the pictures to remember them by.
So I really didn't lose that much.

Hi, I just was making an excell file for the production stats, but looking on Wikipedia for the population stats of the 50s my current number of civilians comes to: 291.779000. This is with the inclusion of two new territories of this week. But this number seems really big, so is it accurate? Or am I doing something wrong?

You made a math error, there is no way that there could be so many people living in those counties. For example, modern North Korea only has 24,000,000 peopl living in it... even with the multiple counties you have taken over it's impossible that the population numbers would be this large.

Ok, other than the grizzly I think we can fairly say I have been very quiet recently.

Only problem is I have an addictive personality and I have spent way too much time on them lately. This has gotten in the way of both my schoolwork but also MOC pages. I have 1 week of holiday now and I think I will use as much of it as possible to get two things done. To get D&C II restarted because it is only laziness on my part that is stopping that. And to get the iron predator finished, even if it means using rainbow parts and
Ordering the parts in dark grey after. I love and hate that thing. It sits there half done looking awesome but hogging all my parts... I organised my bricks today for all cold war projects and I need orders of parts in dark green, tan, and also lots of new figure parts. I may as well just build for the 60s I have left it so long.

What do you mean by similar aircraft? If you mean variants, as long as it's not excessive and the variants are clearly different it's not an issue. However, if people start spamming designs with little or no changes made then someone like me steps in and tells them to knock it off.

Well, the thing is you don't even build medium sized aircraft, the majority of your fighters are light or parasite size. You should download other people's fighter designs, compare them too your own side by side and study their techniques. After that I would try building your own design that copys said techniques. I know you have the talent to build big, it's just a matter of you needing to learn how to build differently. ;)

Thanks. The one thing though, if I choose to continue to build this way, can I have the aircraft that I already have built classified as "regular-sized" aircraft? I mean, I may build them that way, but my eye sees them as "regular-size", so I don't think there should be drawbacks to my aircraft being light or parasite fighters, which (in my opinion) I don't think they are.

I don't know... yes, it's his style, but at the same time creations are at least partially judged by their specifications. The aircraft in question are so small that they wouldn't be able to have the endurance or raw power of larger fighters, and I personally think this should be reflected in CM results. I realise that creative license is a thing, but if someone is building "inferior" designs and we are judging combat effectiveness by both build quality and specs, logically tiny aircraft should have the attributes of tiny fighters. Not having it this way kind of ruins the point of trying to build the "best design" if everything would be considered equal.

Its not a lie, its the law.
Where do you work, and if your under 18 it may simply be allowed in your state.
Here in New England minimum wage starts at 8 or 10$ by law for people over 18 "and under to I believe", and almost all business aside from field pickers, and off the street labor work for over ten bucks. Maybe states in the Midwest have different laws.


"edit" I just looked into it. Although certain states have higher minimum wages than others the US limit is actually 7.25$
So unless its because of your age, or if your working unofficially your employers cant pay you 6$ an hour by law.
If I'm wrong here I feel bad for you, I can see why certain parts of the country are worse off than others.

Building wise I know I have been completely innactive for this group. I might get a few 1950s things up, but probably just the 1950s version of the Centaur tank with the 94mm gun, and the Pteradactyll bomber (vulcan was too unoriginal so I chose the mighty V's nickname)
I do however plan on hitting the 60s hard, and not hippies and peace signs. I mean the Mighty Chieftan tank (with an engine that works more than 15% of the time) the scorpion light tank, the Hawker hunter, the Jaguar, the lightning interceptor, helicopters, trucks, the lot, as well as a full midi scale (decent sized mini) royal imperial navy. My exams start in may through june but qhen I need a reak from studying I will hit the bricks for a it at a time rather than doinv something else like a game.

I've got only a limited number of 1960's designs built, but once we hit the 70's and 80's I pretty much have my core military equipment built.

I don't know... yes, it's his style, but at the same time creations are at least partially judged by their specifications. The aircraft in question are so small that they wouldn't be able to have the endurance or raw power of larger fighters, and I personally think this should be reflected in CM results. I realise that creative license is a thing, but if someone is building "inferior" designs and we are judging combat effectiveness by both build quality and specs, logically tiny aircraft should have the attributes of tiny fighters. Not having it this way kind of ruins the point of trying to build the "best design" if everything would be considered equal.


No, (but not to gloat) the build does show good design and is aesthetically pleasing. In my imagination, it would win against a worse-built plane of perfect scale. The current method of vehicle judging has too many holes, leading to interpretation by the combat moderators. Such an example is this, where I don't want to be forced into building my vehicles (aircraft in this case) to meet the standards of a combat moderator who deems it worse simply because it is built in a certain way.

I disagree, it's both too advanced for the 1980's with its current specs and honesty not that impressive of a build. I say this not as an insult but as a fact, the techniques used are all rather basic. I'm quite sure Nightmare, Sylvan, Tyro, ect... will be able to build some amazing aircraft.

You build well, but there are many builders here just as good if not better at aircraft (Tyro, Matt S, and Nightmare being among the best here) so odds are you won't face worse built aircraft.

Anyway, by your logic I could make a minifig scale bomber that's barely larger than the average fighter and claim that it has the same payload and range as a B-52. Or how about I build a tank the size of a jeep and claim it has the firepower and armor of a heavy tank? Are you fine with me building an apc that barely has room for 2 minifigs and then claiming it can carry an entire squad?

I think not, that would be absurd. If a vehicle is minifigs scale then it should have the attributes of a vehicle of it's size. If you want an airplane with the specs of a full sized fighter then you shouldn't build nothing but parasite fighter sized aircraft. You have access to an infinite amount of bricks so you don't even have parts limitations as an excuse.

I'll agree the judging system has holes but your idea makes standardization more difficult, therefore making said holes larger, not smaller. Nightmare, this falls more into your area of specialty (me primarily being the stats admin), can we have your oppinion?

Assuming a minifigure is 6 feet tall "its at least around that height 5, 7 feet".
Thus should be based in that concept, and if the aircraft is smaller its not in minifigure scale but he should still be able to use it, maybe even take photos with figures so long as he makes it clear its not.

A Mig 21 was apparently 47 feet long which at the most would be about 6 minifigures long and that's stretching a figure out to 8 feet tall.
If a figure is 7 feet tall a b-52 would be 23 figures long, and he may as well just make a mini scale model.

Well, to be honest I think the whole minifig scale thing is a bit silly due to the odd proportions, but yeah, I hadn't thought of that. As long as Colin makes it clear that he isn't building in minifig scale, then the small size of his aircraft could be at least partially explained as due too not being built at the sane scale as other people's aircraft. I haven't been saying he couldn't use it but rather that it should have the specs of a small fighter. However, this proposal of yours makes a nice compromise. :)

From what I heard they may update it over time.
Minecraft for Xbox did something similar, and right now the are working on the pc version of 1.3 as they've said in there twitter. I'm not sure if you play minecraft though. The map Widepark was added shortly after it got out of beta, so we may at least see some more maps.

Red Dawn wasn't anywhere close to a realistic premise during the cold war, and nowadays is even more laughable for how plausible it would be. The US Navy combined with our nuke arsenal makes it pretty much impossible for the US to be invaded.

It would literally take the US military months in order to get any serious force into position to fight a Russian invasion of Ukraine. This is assuming that NATO and Ukraine's neighbors cooperate with us. In other words, a massive war between the US and Russia simply isn't a possibility.

Sure, our politicians will complain about Russia's actions, but at the end of the day we can't really do anything about it.

okay, I know lots of you are inactive or have other things on, but I want to know, how many of you are willing to keep going with two groups at once because D&C II is back up, but unless you guys tell me whether or not you will be participating, I don't know if I should bother to put any more time into it.

At most, I can be an admin/moderator of D&C2, I don't have time to be fully in two groups.

Also of course we can have it 1912-1918, and so forth with the timeframes. Obviously either way we do it some people wont be happy. We have some people who want to build historical, and some who want to build in modern/futurism.

We wont be voting until January of course.

Frigates, sloops, ships of the line, galleons, brigades, battalions, platoons, grenadiers, calvary, cannon, artillery, flying artillery, fortifications, landing ships, sleds, ecetera. This era is not close to limited just different. Just think of how interesting it would be if we went from 1800's to 1850's. The introduction of submersibles, automatic weapons, ironclad ships. It would be a challenge, That is why i would vote for it. Alas, most people like to stick with something semi familiar, so i do not see this happening.

You'd have that all and more if you did 1861-1898 (Civil War to Spanish-American War).

I don't think that infantry is worth mentioning as things to build, and you've listed 3 types of similar artillery. 1800's builds are either minifigs, a few types of cannons, a few type of ships, and earthworks/fortification. Compared to, say, a WW1 group, the building options are extremely limited.

Even WW1 is limited to different sizes of artillery, a few basic tanks (mostly Non-turreted, slow, poorly armoured and more dangerous to the crew than the enemy) and infantry. Most supplies are horse drawn, and how many non LDD builders here have horse parts? WW1 will just force people to make brick-link horse orders, and brickarms rifle and helmet orders. With modern or WW2 you can just build. WW1 will just be a figure fest.
Oh, by the way, I am dropping D&C II. It became a pipe dream. As soon as the iron predator is posted (I refuse to drop it) I am all for this group. I am half done with the Vulcan copy, and have finally worked out the suspension that will mount all my tanks (all British tanks since Centurion have used the same suspension) this means that my Centaurus Mk 1 and Mk 7/1 will be ready soon, mounting 94mm and 105mm guns respectively. I have the wheelbase done for a light supply truck, parts set aside for my fighter aircraft, and a submarine in construction. I am bored of being inactive, and let's say as soon as I have an army, continental Europe should watch out.

Your information on WWI seems to be fairly limited. Horse mounted Calvary was used only in limited numbers, as machine guns, barbed wire, trench warfare, and things like flame throwers, and gas made them obsolete. Most Calvary only saw real use during the very beginning of the war.

Supply trucks were also being used, and tanks near the end of the war had turrets. Lets not also forget about the full array of naval vessels, Subs "U boats", battleships, and the beginnings of modern style naval classes like destroyers, and such.
Also Bi, and tri planes, zeppelins, and the first bombers.
Massive rail way guns, and the Paris gun. Armored cars, motorcycles, halftracks, and more.

Building my successor P-300 but the turret will be more modern looking. I'm thinking of using of either a Panzer IV or V styled turret or such. Cliffe you willing to help out?


My Leopard 1 turret is still a challenge. Especially with the way it was designed that I cannot find any references in bricks. Most are into the Leopard II.

Horses were used throughout the war to transport things as cars could be unreliable on muddy ground, and this exactly what i was saying about the 1800's their is so much, but we tend to generalize.

Yes but cargo trucks, and cars were also heavily used by the end of the war, I didn't say that horses were not.

Aside from cannons, sailing ships "the interesting part", and fortifications I don't see much to it.
If you could give us a list of at least 20 entirely different creations to build I'm willing to hear it. Not things like Ship of the line vs. Brig though, stuff like that is the problem as they are so similar. More like Ship of the line vs. Iron clad.
As for figures that's truly b*ring to build, Some of want to make MOCs, not figs.

WWI simply offers a marked milestone more types of weapons to build than the 1800s, it was a true evolution in warfare the like of which had not been seen in hundreds of years.
Aircraft, and mechanized weapons in all shapes, and sizes. Zeppelins, and the wonder weapons of the time, and plenty of fortifications to top it off.

I find lines of infantry, cannons, and Calvary a tad plain compared to the scorched earth of no mans land being bombarded by railway guns, with bombers falling out of the skies from German triplanes, and solders rushing over the battlefield supported by the primitive tanks, only to be met by lines of machine gun fire, and flame thrower. Its a tad more dramatic even when factoring in the carnage caused by cannon balls, and primitive hand cranked Gatling guns.

Its a cool idea aside, but as we all know quite a few people simply wont want to touch 1800s theme.

I would have listed these, but seeing as you've already covered them that would be redundant. Good work on covering the wide variety of build types and correcting the tank misinformation. It's clear that Jack wasn't aware of the wide variety of WW1 equipment. I dare say there are roughly 3-4 times as many things to build compared to the 1800's.

I am aware. My comment on the horses didn't relate to cavalry. I meant soley that they formed the ackbone of all nation's supply system because trucks and cars at the time were innefective off of relatively good quality roads. As for tanks, I know that the Ft17 had a turret at the end of the war, but as a whole nobody knew how to make a good tank then. It was completely new ground, lke the first powered aircraft, with all sorts of designs trying out what works. We know now, but back then they were fairly clueless. The st chamond tqnk had less than half its base lengh covered by its tiny tracks so was aweful off road, the british tanks were decent through thick mud and trenches, but the german .50 cal anti tank rifles killed them easily. Naval combat would be good I guess, as battleships would get a chance to shine without aircraft carriers to dominate the scene like in WW2. As for aircraft, that could be interesting. So many design routes to take, with each one upping the others in a certain way, like speed, or climb rate, or for the camel, insane snap turns to the right because of the huge engine.
I do know this stuff, and I also now realise that in a group like this it wouldn't just break down into trench warefare, but I still think it is too limeted compared to WW2 era.

A bit early to be deciding, but yes, I would almost certainly jump on Germany for a WW2 era group.It just saddens me to see all the incredible what if vehicles, or even combat ready ones that were never able to show thier potential because of the situation. (Dont get me wrong, I am glad the geemans lost) I did an 11400 word essay after a year of research on the ways Nazi German Aeronautical engineering has influenced the progression of aircraft design. It is just astounding, and I wasn't even able to fit more than a tiny glimpse of the huge range of incredible aircraft they had planned for 1946, 1947 or even later.
