    De Schelde S-21

    Have been looking at this one a number of times and thought it was
    time to start something on it. Work continues as they say.
    Who knows maybe it will become a 3D...

    A truly bizarre and unique aircraft. Would love to see this in 3D.

    That is one funky design!

    Never knew we had this design but it looks cool

    Cool unique subject. It never ceases to amaze me the number of oddball aircraft there were designed and built. I love these unique ones. Look forward to the 3D version.

    Yup! Really interesting little crate. DB600 engine, reclining seat, fixed slots,
    movable canon when used as attack aircraft (fixed when used as fighter) not to
    mention tri-cycle undercarriage.
    It never flew I think - the prototype was ready by 1940 but disappeared together
    with drawings when Germany occupied. There's some old mumbo jumbo about
    a FW198 which would be the De Schelde but seems to be just a rumour as this
    is a designation that does not show at the RLM or FW.

    Some more work's been done and have started looking at 3D so we'll see
    where it all ends...

    OK, so finally got some more time to spend on this babe.
    Put a little colour on it and we'll see where I'll be going with
    the 3D. A lot of it is guesswork as there is not that much info
    to go by.

    Great job, I like it a lot! Wonderful choice of subject.

    PS. Highly recommended reference for the S-21 and quite possibly the only dedicated book on De Schelde aircraft:
