Blohm und Voss BV P202

This 1944 Richard Vogt’s design was powered by two BMW 003 jet engines and was armed with two MK 193 30 mm cannon on each side of the fuselage and one MG 151/20 20 mm cannon in the nose. The real star of this design was the variable wing, which was achieved by rotating the…

oblique wing

An oblique wing (also called a slewed wing) is a variable geometry wing concept. On an aircraft so equipped, the wing is designed to rotate on center pivot, so that one tip is swept forward while the opposite tip is swept aft. By changing its sweep angle in this way, drag can be reduced at…

Aviation art steps

A recent work I did Here I show few steps. They are divided in 5 steps and the main idea is to show the importance to know the aircraft structure before you start to draw, to paint, to illustrate or generate it in a 3D software. Research is really important, as well as some other…

Variable-sweep wing

A variable-sweep wing, colloquially known as a “swing wing”, is an airplane wing, or set of wings, that may be swept back and then returned to its original position during flight. It allows the aircraft’s shape to be modified in flight, and is therefore an example of a variable-geometry aircraft. Typically, a swept wing is…
