Ju-287

I have already built some Luft46 projects, like the Blohm + Voss P.188.03, but I wanted to build a different project this time. The Ju-287 was a German test-bed bomber built in the end of the war, but the Germans were developing new and more advanced versions like the EF-140.
The real story:

This Ju-287 version is the EF-140, a prototype only built after the war by the Soviets. The first flight was in 1948, using two Klimov VK-1 jet engines. If the WW2 had continued, it might have been built by the germans and used as a tactical bomber against England and the URSS.

Alternate Story (what if? 1945-47)

The prototype was powered by two BMW 109-018 jet engines, featured a revolutionary forward-swept wing and, like other bombers built by Junkers, it carried a pressure cabin housing the three man crew. The defensive guns were all remotely controlled.

Operationally, the plane was called Ju-287 A-5. A small squadron of 5 Ju-287s A-5 operating from Norway, each plane armed with two Hs 296, tried to sink the soviet battleship Sovetsky Soyuz in 1946.

The battleship eventually was hit two times but managed to survive and return to Murmansk. Two Ju-287 A-5 bombers were shot down during the attack. The fast bomber was also used with great success against the Soviet army, being too fast for the soviet fighters to catch up. This led the soviets to develop mixed rocket-and-propeller fighters to defend it´s troops.
In May 1947, a few weeks before the “end of the war”, a total of 350 Ju-287 A-5 were used in the Second Battle of Britain. Half of them were lost in less than a week, most to the new British jet fighters like the De Havilland Vampire and the Gloster Meteor.

The bomb bay with two 1000kg bombs.

Henschel Hs 296 Flying bomb (invented by me)

The Henschel Hs 296 was a radio-controlled flying bomb carrying a 750kg armour-piercing charge. The bomb was developed from the Fieseler Fi 103 Flying bomb (also know as V-1) and was guided to the target using a “Tonne-Seedorf” TV guidance system built for the Hs 293D. It had a range of 30km and was propelled by 2 Schmidding SG 34 solid fuel rocket boosters (1,200 kg for 10 seconds each).

Rear defensive turret with two 20mm MG-151 cannons.

oh cr@p those things were operational in wwii?! would have been catastrophic if they had entered service in 1944 (for the british). the germans had one radical design after another. examples are this, the me 262, the he 178 (at its time) the do 335, the ar 234, that focke-wolffe fighter, and, of course, the first jet-flying wings, the ho 229 fighter and the six-engined ho 8, which could carry an atom bomb to new york (fortunately it wasn't built). the germans in ww2 had some scary planes. good job!

Like everyone else has posted, Impressive build. If you are in need of a new aircrart to build take a look at the Convair NX-2. It was supposed to be a nueclear powered bomber but never made it past the drawing board. I would reccomend trying to build it.

Quoting Eric Landreneau What a gorgeous build! I love all the research you put into it, and how true to life your creation is. The only improvement you could make would be to find a way to angle the wings up. But even without that, great job.
True. I wanted to make the angle of the wings, but it´s extremily difficult because the engines and the landing gear are located at the wings. But thanks for your comment!

Quoting Original Channel of MOCpages (Caleb) How did you get the strafe lines!?!? And how did you paste so well?
The strafe lines is simple. Just use the eraser tool from Photoshop. To paste the image into the wallpaper, you just need to clean the image are the MOC, then copy.
