Sorry, kbr. I should have split up the photos into smaller groups for faster loading on 56k connections. Let me know which was the last to load and I will re-post the missing pics from that set. Thanks!
Thanks Wayne and Junkers for the data on the Junkers 160. I think I would like to build that plane in the future for flight simulator. If you know of a 3 view drawing of one online somewhere, let me know.
Also, has anyone made a vintage Tempelhof for flight simulator?
Nice job on the scans, Leyland. I've got that book, too, and looking at how small the 3-views are, the scans came out quite well.

Love to see that one roll out of your hangar, Bill! Interesting thing I read about the Ju 60 and Ju 160 was that they marked a change in design philosophy from Junkers in going from corrugated metal construction to smooth skin. The Ju 60 had a smooth monocoque fuselage but retained corrugated wings, while the Ju 160 had a smooth wing and fuselage. Wish there were more detailed photos available of the cockpit windows. Looks like it has an interesting asymmetrical design from the 3-view but it's kind of hard to visualize from the angles in most photos.
Tempelhof? Wouldn't that be nice! ;D Been looking for a pre-war scenery for that airfield...no luck. Apparently there is a slightly more modern version available (part of a payware package?), seen in some screenshots at: members.lycos.co.uk/Berlin_flightsim/

I'm sure I've seen an asymetric cockpit frame like that somewhere else, but I can't think where (not the He70, which is offset rather than asymetric, and doesn't have this kind of frame). Templehoff would be very nice (anybody listening?) and maybe another, to facilitate a traffic flow of these planes. Leyland

I still can't find an asymetric cabin quite like that one, although I'm sure I've seen one. But I did find another 3view (different but maybe not much better) together with a couple of photos. Do you want me to post them here again Bill? - Don't want to clog up the site/thread unnecessarily. Alternatively I can email them to you (or just forget it, if you have enough). Leyland
