Don't know about him, but I'll likely do the HeS 011 powered versions (including engine, which I intend to market) with at least the swept back wing+butterfly tail. I'd like to find data on the proposed "B" model, with larger wing and fuselage stretch, powered by either the Jumo 004 or HeS 011. The later swept wing versions would have had the same stretched fuselage, and the alternate wings were obvious, but on the increased size straight wings, there is next to nothing available. Depending on how well it is done, the kit engine might need replacing, and the engine done for the Craftworks kit would be good replacement. I don't know when, or even if, now, the Craftworks '162 will ever happen, but the engine at least ought to be useful.

Other than an OOB version, probably either a fictional Luft '46 ground-attack version or a single-seat "A-1a Nachtjager".
