This is my submission for David's World War Two Jet Contest. This is a Japanese rocket plane. David, you didn't specify German, so here's something you may not have seen before! The Yokosuka MXY-7 Ohka, (櫻花 "cherry blossom", Hebon-shiki transcription Ōka, ) was a purpose-built, rocket powered human-guided anti-shipping suicide missile employed by Japan towards the end of World War II http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ohka The original version of this aircraft was a one-way aircraft, period. Even the Japanese people found the aircraft's single intent so repulsive, that under pressure, later variants included landing gear in case the pilot 'missed' the target. ***UPDATE*** This MOC has indeed won the contest it was submitted in! Thank you for all the comments!
About this creation





The stem on the front was a detonator that caused it to explode on impact.

Note the single rocket engine, only enough fuel for a few minutes of flight.







The Cherry Blossom is supported on pre-flight cart for delivery to the mothership.

Beautiful Ohka! An added fact: It was meant to be launched from a G4M "Betty" bomber, thus making it more like a manned torpedo than an aircraft.

I think that for the Experimental Aircraft competition, you will be awarded (from me), 7/10. The main factor was that this aircraft isn't really an experimental plane.

Not bad, you got the shape pretty well. The wings are a bit off, and the nose could be different though. In all, a good job!

I really like your Ohka. Japanese planes aren't used for MOCs very often. Maybe you could post a blueprint of the aircraft to show some more details?
