Default An early attempt at photo-shopping?

Hello Gents,

What do you make of this? An early attempt at photo shop or an unknown, top secret prototype flown by Ramjet in his early days?

All the best,
TJ

Never seen that before. I know they played around with lots of experimental stuff but this looks to have been for an aircraft carrier or short landings - the hook at the back and insignia. I know they had the flettner and a couple of focke prototypes. The focke achgelis became the first production line helicopter in the world but it never took off - pardon the pun.

That is some crazy looking bird... made up of many different aircraft.

TJ,

looks like a hybrid of 3 naval aircrafts (f.l.t.r.) Fairey 17 "Gannet", Sikorsky Choktaw Helicopter and Breguet Atlantic plane. My guess would be: .....Photoshop (Not to mention the different angles of the wheels and the rotor blades).

By all means: Marineflieger (so it couldn't be Ramjet's one!) and very well done, Happy New Year!
