I'm intrigued by something I saw on the History channel not too long ago, that talked about the top secret "wonder weapons" of Germany in WWII. Some were incredibly advanced, but fortunately most came along far too late to make any real difference.
This scene depicts one such weapon and how it might have looked.
Please note - this piece is STRICTLY a historical/fantasy type piece of work. It is in no way whatsoever meant to convey a promotion of the ideals of the Third Reich...it is only artwork, and nothing more.
Thanks for stopping by to have a look.

First, no need for appology or disclaimer. Secondly, I've seen drawings of several of their putative super weapons, and among them, this flying saucer. There was a LOT of "foo fighter" activity during WWII. The Germans thought they wee allied, and the allies thought they were German or Japanese (depending on which theatre one was fighting in). The Germans tried to "copy" the "foo fighter" as best they could from their understanding of it based on sightings and photos. You've done a good job at attempting to reconstruct a possible air field scenario. Keep up the good work. :-)

Heh. That's a superb concept. BTW, did you know that particular "UFO" was exposed as a fake some years ago? It's actually the top of a wine cooler. Still, you made a great image there.

The top of wine cooler?!?! Hahaha! That's funny! No I hadn't heard that. I made this piece after watching a show about alleged German advanced flight technology toward the end of the war. I find that sort of stuff very interesting. Thanks for having a look and for the rating. -Steve
