"Space Ship One" of 2004 resembles B&V jet pro

Post by kfbr392 » 04 Oct 2004 21:56

did anyone but me notice some similarities here?


the first two are late war jet projects, the last pic shows that private space vehicle that won that x-prize today.

Huh, very interesting. The late war German designs really were ahead of their time.

Oh heavens... I cannot recall how many times I've seen those imagines (of the space ship and of the BV plane), and I haven't thoguht about that, but, it is true, they look quite similar.

They probably drawn some inspiration from Luft46 projects for the styling 8) check this one:

The guy must have a few ex-nazi scientists chained up in his basement or something. The whole process of launching and the actual designs are too similar to be coincidence!

Shows you what kind of aeronautical minds they had working in Germany in the later 1940's.

I wonder if anyone can press for rights to the desing? Were the nazi planes ever patented or anything of this sort?

I think Burt Rutan just ended up in the same kinda results through cold reasoning.

I made a new kinda shuttle design after the Columdia disaster too. Didn't know about Rutan design nor looked at the luft46 for the answer.


rgds,

Gimme money back! Now I understand why Microsoft is not a shareware...like Nazi projects! (Btw I know perfectly who is the owner of SpaceShipOne) 8) I cannot copy their damned OS but they are still copying from Nazis.... :lol: Topspeed, you are wrong here. Burt Rutan faked without any doubt.

Nearly all (I think about 300.000 or 3.000.000) German patents had been stolen by the USA and some less by the UdSSR after the war.

So no one can claim rights on these ideas.

There were a few other tailless Blohm und Voss fighter projects, including the P.208 and P.210. Info about these designs is found at these links:
