15mm (1/100) 3D Westland 40/46

Watermarked PDF

15mm (1/100) 3D paper Westland 40/46.

The British Air Ministry issued Specification 40/46 for a jet fighter. Der Kampflieger brings to life a proposal from Westland Aircraft to meet this specification to the paper modelling world.

Westland had gained considerable experience in designing flying-wing aircraft during the 30s with their Pterodactyl series of testbed aircraft, and their proposal reflected this expertise.  A blunt-nosed fuselage blended into a massive wing, with wingtip control surfaces.

Though the design never progressed beyond the paper stage, the der Kampflieger paper model kit allows, through layering the PDF file, for the builder to explore several what-if marking schemes for this design, if it had entered operational status with the RAF and Fleet Air Arm (FAA).

Perfect for the alternative WWII and Luft'46 games.

Multi-layered PDF allows for hide instruction diagrams (save ink!), wheel wells opened or closed, and three camouflage schemes (RAF Europe day fighter, RAF Mediterranean theater, and post-war FAA ).

Easy one page download.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
