Messerschmitt HF-00X 'Hauptflugzeug'

Auto Credit Based on MAHADI's WWII Jets Challenge! (CLOSED)

A big, big thank-you to @Blue0Bull for his hidden wing which really helped me fine tune the performance of the plane, and also make functional flaps.


The Me-00X, nicknamed "Hauptflugzeug" (Chief Fighter), was initally conceived as Projekt 1065 in 1936. Two years later, the project was branched to give birth to the Me-00X and its cousin, the Me-262. The Me-00X was intended to become the backbone of the Luftwaffe, replacing the ageing Bf.109 and initial tests would prove that only a squadron of the fighter could decimate any Allied airforce.

Initially an air-superiority fighter, the Me-00X was quickly outfitted with the ability to carry out light bombing missions, which would only heighten its already impressive capabilities.

Early stages of development bore promising signs. It was not until 1942 that the Junkers Jumo 004 engine, which powered the Me-262 and later, the Arado Ar.234, would be deemed insufficient for the Me-00X. This led to the development of the Junkers Jumo 00X, a more powerful yet vastly more expensive variant of the 004.

Technical holdups, a short supply of strategic materials and too much top-level interference were common issues that plagued both the 00X and its cousin. Before the first combat-operational squadron could take flight, 2 years behind schedule, Germany had surrendered to the allies.

    Oh, by the way, I forgot to mention that I used one of the hidden wings from @Blue0Bull's Kingcobra (check it out) for the flaps and increasing the roll of the plane; it just magically happened to be the exact wing I needed.

    Looks neat, flies a bit wonky though. The gimmicks are solid too

    @DarthAbhinav You did a good job here, not only does the plane look great but she's also believable. She fits the historical context very well.

    @F104Deathtrap Thank you very much for your inputs, I'll be certain to bear them in mind whilst constructing my next aircraft. As for the landing gears, I just got lazy towards the end and wanted to get the build done with, hence, the poorly made and placed LGs.

    Looks pretty good. I like your attention to texture, the shape of the fuselage and the overall layout of the plane. The back story makes sense (I especially like the bit about political meddling). I like how you centered the location of the bombs with the center of mass and the gun placement is also excellent. The radio antenna cables give the plane a very realistic appearance and look great. For improvement, consider the size of internal components when designing things like wings and nacelles. There's not enough space in the nacelles for engines, ductwork, and the landing gear hydraulics. Your wings are also much too thin in terms of z axis (height), consider making the wing roots about 5 times thicker than the tips when viewed from the front.
