Little known fact: the P-61 Blackwidow was used as a test platform for ramjet technology. See here ---> http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/59/P-61_testing_Ramjet_engine_bw.jpg

Thanks for the offer! I have dissasembled my Black Widow though. I may rebuild it or make another WWII fighter. When does your contest close? I may try to put up an entry but don't count on anything. Thanks again! Peace - Patrick

Ok. Right now, I'm searching for a suitable jet. I'd like to do something other than the usual P-80 or P-59. I've considered the XP-79 and XP-81. I also came across a design called the L-133 designed by Lockheed but I can't find any information on it to verify its legitimacy. Another interesting desing I found was a P-51 with ramjets on the wingtips. You have probably figured out that I'm trying to stick to an American design. Yes, the Germans built a lot of great rockets and jets, but many people have heard of them. I'm going for something a little less well known. I'd like to hear what other people are considering for designs. Ollie sounded like he was interested in a Lüftwaffe rocket. John Lamarck built a nice Gloster Meteor F8 a while back. What's in the plans folks?

Sounds like its going to be a good contest. It also looks like I'll enter the only American design. I'm anxious to see what Ollie decides to build. He's got some great talent and always finds some obscure plane few people have heard of.

Good choice. That's a neat plane. Quick question. Would a McDonnell FH-1 be suitable? It was designed in 1943 and ordered by the Navy in 1944. It was a jet, I'm just worried that it was made too late in the war. I haven't started building anything yet so if you'd prefer I did another model, its no big problem.

Sure you can do that if you want, most jets in ww2 were never even used in combat most of them like the Go 229 were just prototypes

Hey Patrick,
I think it's a great idea to bring in an American jet concept. Most people have German projects in mind when they hear "WWII jets". I did so, too. It will be interesting to compare "German Style" and "US Style" (US jets had no swept wings, for example).
By the way, thanks for your review of my Rocket wing.

First off, you're welcome for the reveiw. I didn't think there were that many US Jet designs during the time, but I'm finding a few and I'm actually having a tough time choosing one. I really want to try the XP-79 just because of its radical design. But I also like the McDonnell FH-1 and Vultee XP-81. Dunno, maybe I'll do more than one ;-). Any votes?
