Although I have reservations with respect to many programmes with respect to WW2 German aircraft. Certainly doubt the claims to game changing. In this case the claim of a German Nuclear weapon was scheduled for 1947 seem fanciful.

But this one is intersting, in that a full size model has been built

I do wonder why? Three months of work, by Northrop, there has to be a reason beyond it makes a programme.

Well Erf, I took a look at this video and I'm really pleased that I did - good find, very interesting indeed.

I think its not only historically very illuminating its also fascinating to see Northop's approach, which really is "scaled up model building"!

The importance of the Horten brothers is often overlooked I believe. Its worth remembering that when Eric Brown was seeking German aviation subjects to interogate after the war the Hortens were high on his list - from this you can see why!
