WWII Blohm & Voss P 212 Free Aircraft Paper Model DownloadThis WWII aircraft paper model is the Blohm & Voss P 212 (BV P212), this papercraft is designed by Eric Son. The Blohm & Voss P212 was a prototype jet fighter designed for a Luftwaffe design competition during the Second World War.

In the latter part of 1944, the High Command of the Luftwaffe decided to take advantage of a new jet engine, the Heinkel HeS 011, which was being developed, in order to create a stronger, high-altitude fighter jet. In an attempt to create the most innovative jet the Luftwaffe came up with the Emergency Fighter Competition, which challenged engineers to invent a new aircraft. By February 1945, the Luftwaffe had received several proposals. Three proposals had been received from Messerschmitt, two from Focke-Wulf and one each from Heinkel, Junkers and Blohm & Voss respectively.

The design featured a short, squat fuselage, wings swept back at forty-five degrees, the HeS 011 jet engine on the rear of the fuselage, and was named the BV P212.02. With a lengthened fuselage, the second of the BV P.212 designs was seen as a refined version of the original.

The third version, named BV P212.03, was the model presented to the Luftwaffe, which boasted a further lengthened body and larger internal fuel tanks, with wings swept back at forty degrees. Uniquely, the wings were designed to be built out of either wood, steel or aluminium, and the cabin was pressurised for the pilot. With an ideal fuel weight, the aircraft could fly for up to four hours at a time.

Whilst the Luftwaffe chose to produce the Focke-Wulf Ta 183 following the competition, construction of three P212 prototypes began in May 1945, following extensive wind tunnel and structural tests. The first aircraft was to make its first flight in August, however following the end of the second world war, construction was abandoned.
