Dornier Do-335 A-1 'Pfeil'

~Additional versions and aircraft modifications are at the bottom of the description!~
SIDE-NOTES:
I'm back, and I thought I'd start off my return with one of my most ambitious projects on SP, the Do-335. It's been a while, and with that long time of being away from this game came a gross lack and loss of skill and technique. Despite the long re-learning process I had to take, I finally got around to finishing this project. The plane is big, fast, and high-destruction. With high-explosive 30mm cannon rounds and a formidable bomb ordinance, the aircraft was greatly feared by allied pilots during the second world war.
HISTORY (FROM WIKIPEDIA):
The origins of the Do 335 trace back to World War I when Claude Dornier designed a number of flying boats featuring remotely driven propellers and later, due to problems with the drive shafts, tandem engines. Tandem engines were used on most of the multi-engine Dornier flying boats that followed, including the highly successful Do J Wal and the gigantic Do X. The remote propeller drive, intended to eliminate parasitic drag from the engine entirely, was tried in the innovative but unsuccessful Do 14, and elongated, tubular drive shafts as later used in the Do 335 saw use in the rear engines of the four-engined, twinned tandem-layout Do 26 flying boat.

    @Dllama4 Go away you slithering stinky crusty llama man. My builds are perfection and i'm beyond every form of criticism because everything I make is absolute objective perfection. Everything you make is poopy and bad and you only got to 100k because you posted a high volume of bad garbage trash. Blocked again and i'm reporting you to the admins for being annoying.! Say goodbye to your account hahah!!

    I’ll think of it, but the only reason I haven’t been posting wunderwaffe planes is because the hottest builds are sometimes saturated with those kinds of posts. @Starbound

    This is fantastic. I made one of these years ago, easily one of my favorite aircraft from any era. Yours handily blows mine out of the sky. Well done.

    Sure, go on ahead. Just give credit. I’ve tried making a p.256 variant but unfortunately the final product just didn’t look clean, especially the wings. @nadvgia

    Excelent job on the plane and variants. Would be nice to see the mixed prop/jet variants or perhaps i can do them as sucessors of your builds?
