BAC Mustard

The Multi-Unit Space Transport And Recovery Device or MUSTARD, usually written as Mustard, was a concept explored by the British Aircraft Corporation (BAC) during the mid-1960s for launching payloads weighing as much as 2,300 kg (5,000 lb) into orbit. Operating as a multi-stage rocket for launch, the individual stages were near-identical modules, each flying back to land as a spaceplane. Mustard was a modular re-usable space…

I.A. 36 Cóndor II

The I.A. 36 Cóndor II was projected as a passenger transport aircraft by Kurt Tank. It was designed in Argentina within the Military Aircraft Factory in the early 1950s. The project was canceled by the government of dictator Pedro Eugenio Aramburu, during the era known as Revolution Libertadora in 1958. The project had five turbines in…

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…

Delta wings

Early deltas Triangular stabilizing fins for rockets were described ca. 1529-1556 by Conrad Haas and in the 17th century by Kazimierz Siemienowicz. The lifting delta wing was pioneered by Alexander Lippisch in Germany after WWI, initially using a very gentle angle so that the wing appeared almost straight. He flew the first tailless delta aircraft…

Variable-sweep wing 1024 1002 admin

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…

Heinkel He 119

The Heinkel He 119 was an experimental single-engine monoplane developed in Germany. A private venture by Heinkel to test radical ideas by the Günter brothers, the He 119 was originally intended to act as an unarmed reconnaissance bomber capable of eluding all fighters due to its high performance. Design was begun in the late summer…

Bomber B Projekt 1024 662 admin

Bomber B Projekt

Bomber B was a German military aircraft design competition organised just before the start of World War II to develop a second-generation high-speed bomber. The new designs would be a direct successor to theSchnellbomber philosophy, using high speed as its primary defence. But the Bomber B would also be a much larger and more capable…

Mikoyan Gurevich MiG-17 Fresco

MiG-17s were designed to intercept straight-and-level-flying enemy bombers, not for air-to-air combat (dogfighting) with other fighters. This subsonic (.93 Mach) fighter was effective against slower (.6-.8 Mach), heavily loaded U.S. fighter-bombers, as well as the mainstay American strategic bombers during the MiG-17’s development cycle (such as the Boeing B-50 Superfortress or Convair B-36 Peacemaker, which were…
