[Q] V-1 bomb in luft46 designs?

Just got hold of Tamiya's beautiful 1/72 Fiseler V-1 bomb, and I'm
thinking of doing something different from the bomb on trolley look.
Were there any Luft 46 designs that used the V-1 bomb?

IIRC the model is a standard V-1, yes? About the only other way to go is the Fiesler piloted version; the pilot was ostensibly to bail out during the final target run. I can't see how; you'd get sucked into the engine! hth

Dragon used to make a Ar 234 B 'huckebak' version with the V-1 carried piggyback on the 4-jet version of the 234.

That and the Fi.103 "Reichenberg" manned variant. Ford Motor Co. also made a knock-off JB-1 'Loon', IIRC that was tested towards the end of the war and postwar for about five years or so.

Ah, 1/72? If you mean their 1/48 kit, it is actually a stinker. Inaccurate in almost every detail.

Yes, the one with a radioactive silica "dirty bomb" warhead.

More than just tested - they made several thousand. The plan was, come September 1945 and beyond, to hit the Japanese with something like 2000 JB-1s _per day_, just to keep them on their toes. They were also scheduled to drop anthrax spores and rice blast virus.

Downward-firing ejector seat? Or just an underside escape hatch?
The "Bulletstopper" volume of the "Luftwaffe 1946" comic book shows Daimler-Benz/Focke-Wulf Projekt C superbombers carrying two or more advanced V1 missiles each.

Nah, just launched over England and Paris normally. But wait you say - The Germans had been pushed back so that the V-1 could no longer reach England! Well, the whole "Luft '46" spiel requires a stunning suspension of disbelief just to exist . . .

I 'think' Frog's might have had a towing device for a V-1. I'll have to check the kit tonight.

Are you referring to Robert Harris's "Fatherland"?

i don't think so. it's told from someone live in a fragmented america and features jo goebbels daughter's memoirs. i've been looking but the tame black hole i use for storage is being fiesty.

Neither. Swing the canopy sideways (as with the Bf 109) and clamber out). Estimated chance of succesful evacuation 1% during terminal dive on target.

Which "luft46" kit was it, a few years back, that had the box art featuring the aircraft attacking a group of B-35's? I would *love* to have a full size print of that artwork.....

There are no such things as "tame" Black Holes, only trained ones... :-P
BTW: If your BH ever gives it back, I'd like to know the title so that I can add it to my "future reading" list...

That was a Messerschmitt Me.P.1101 Night Fighter variant, from Japan (I think Hasagawa, but don't remember offhand). Its a nice little kit.
