Product Description
The kit includes: resin parts, white metal parts, decal sheet, 2 vacuformed canopies (one spare) and full instructions.
With its P 1102/105 project Messerschmitt was proposing an aircraft design and configuration which had never before been seen. Featuring a powerplant arrangement at nose and tail, and fitted with a variable-geometry wing which could be swept in flight to an angle of 50º, it was intended to reach a speed of 1010 Km/h ( 627 mph) at full power, full power being taken to mean the total thrust of all three jet engines. This fast attack bomber project, part of the P 1101 development series, as to have been capable of carrying a 3,000 Kg ( 6,612 lb) bomb load at high speeds over considerable distances. It would be fitted by three Heinkel-Hirth HeS 109-011 turbojets, one of each side of the nose and the third in the aft fuselage. The variable-geometry wing could be swept between the angles of 15º and 50º to meet relevant flight requirements, the former being selected for take-off and landing, the later enabling the aircraft to reach the maximum speed. The tail unit was of a normal configuration, with the tail planes swept back at 60 degrees. A single pilot sat in a cockpit located in the forward fuselage and three fuel tanks of 1200 liter capacity each were located behind the cockpit. The lower fuselage held an internal bomb bay and the tricycle landing gear. No armament was designated at this stage in the design. As well as operating as a fast bomber, a fighter role was also envisaged for this design. After the end of the war the documentation relating to this series, too, was seized by the Americans,. It was used in the development of a number of new aircraft. The P 1102/105 project’s unusual three-engine powerplant arrangement, in particular, was employed on the American Martin XB-51 high speed attack-interceptor which first flew in mid-1949.
