BV-38 German Flying Wing

E-mail Print

Fictional aircraft from world war two scene in famous movie Indiana Jones : Raiders of The Ark. Design by Rizky Ferriansyah with 1: 72 scale. Pretty good design and nice texture, I  like this bird. Check out Rizky's blog to find more military paper scale models.

 

 

The fictional flying wing prototype was designed by concept artist Ron Cobb who is listed as one of the production artists (although in the bonus material disc of the Indiana Jones box set, the design of the wing was attributed to Raiders of the Lost Ark Production Designer, Norman Reynolds). The inspiration for the wing was not from the many advanced tailess designs of the nazi plane designers like the Horton bros. but by an american flying wing prototype from the 1940s (although it was never mentioned, but I'm guessing the specific inspiration may have been one of Jack Northrop's early flying wing designs).

The full-sized model was built by the Vickers Aircraft Company and shipped in pieces to the set in Tunisia where it was assembled on set. Although the action was all between Indy and the big nazi goon, the centerpiece of the sequence was the flying wing!
