Luftwaffe 1946 - Beat This!

Micke Arreborn's more relaxed project of last summer was this diorama of... hmm, what exactly?

The puzzle has been somewhat clarified when I learned the title of this creation. Micke entitled his work Flygplan, meaning simply Aircraft. It took scrap parts from several kits to construct the little diorama on a wooden base, and the scale is approximately 1/35. 

I believe that Luftwaffe 1946 afficionados will have a hard nut to crack with this one. Micke's creation raises the bar by representing a craft that not only never existed in reality, which does not deviate from other Luft-46 projects, but it didn't even exist on paper!  The diorama shows what is apparently a prototype of this ground-breaking design ready for operational trials. Of note is also the North African camouflage...

The two pilots are captured discussing how to best use the thing to chase RAF reconnaissance Mosquitos.
