Advanced Messerschmitt jet fighter projects for the early 1945 jet fighter contest

Everyone knows the Messerschmitt P.1101 swing-wing fighter, but Messerschmitt devised a number of advanced jet fighters, including the P.1106, P.1110, P.1111, and P.1112. Links to these aircraft can be found found here:

Had the P.1112 reached the hardware phase and flown, it would been a threat to the B-29, B-32, B-35, and B-36 long-range bombers flying at very high altitudes.
