Wow! That is a serious amount of sausage-scoffing power! Nice work, Fairline!
Simply grand! A massive body of work, extremely well done. I especially like the Me-410 and the He-219. And thank you for the glider, it's just what I need for Seelowe.
A Ratte and a Monster walk into a bar.
"What's this?" snaps Albert Speer, "A joke?!"
OK , I had to look that one up. A P1000 Ratte I take it? Not sure I could do justice to the size of this thing. That has to be the world's fattest ratte!
If it had actually been built, the moment they tried to drive it anywhere it would have become a subterranean tank.
The book "My Tank is Fight" covers the Ratte and other mad WW2 "what-if" weapons...Various stories project
what would happen if these monster tanks were used...A flight of B-17s take out the Ratte on it's first mission.
20 Tiger tank units could be made with the same resources. What a silly waste of time...Speer cancelled the thing, quite rightly.
@Fairline : Amazing as always!
Meanwhile, this little guy flew by to say hi:
Excellent! I'll add him into the sheet.
@Fairline Hey, thanks
And a most obscure floatplane, the Fairey IIIF:
Fourteen served the Greek navy between 1929 and 1941.
Some minor tweaks to my Neubaufahrzeug and T-35, the Neubaufahrzeug still looks......iffy. Especially the rear MG turret.
Multi-turrets are hard...
Yeah, we'd have to triple the size of Civ2's sprite sheets to make it work.
The Monster was even worse.
Anyone remember who made this? I found it in my units folder (i still have pretty much every unit released here and at apolyton in there....The folder is over 4GB )
Looks like it was from the Vendetta/Soviet Steel-era of MGE scens...Not sure if I had a hand in making it or was it Harry-Tuttle?
Damn, I had meant to put that in the German sheet but forgot. I'll fix that. I already have the Russian multi-turret you drew in the Soviet compilation.
Lunacy. The thing I like about the side-view pic of the Ratte posted above is that it is shown to scale with an E-100 next to it for comparison, which would have been the next biggest tank in the world if both of these had been made. Clearly a bit of gun-barrel-envy going on between the designers of the Ratte and E-100.
Wing fix for the Hs126:
Doing the Fw189 next.
Fairline, Tanelorn and B_E...
@gapetit :thx, G!
The Fw 189 Uhu:
Fixes and improvements:
Hello Gapetit and thanks
@ Tanelorn. Take all the time you need over getting these right; I can wait before adding them to the final compilation. (Let me know when you've finished so I can post a final version )
I tweaked your Arado a tad to reposition the left float. Hope that's OK
@ Erika: tweaked your Neubaufahrzeug a tad. Hope that's OK too
