    History:
    The Hamburger Flugzeugbau's design team initiated work on a dive-bomber in 1933. The Ha-137 was developed around a wing based on a single strong tubular spar which also would serve as the primary fuel tank. Three prototypes were completed during 1934-35, and tests began during the summer of 1935. Two further prototypes were built to take the new power plant. Powered by the 610 h.p. Jumo 210Aa. The new prototypes were the Ha 137V4 (D-IFOE) and V5 (D-IUXU). The radial-engined and inline-engined versions were referred to respectively as the Ha 137A and Ha 137B, the latter being the proposed production versions. The Jumo-powered Ha 137 participated in the dive-bomber contest held at Rechlin in June, 1936, but the aircraft was obviously inferior to the Junkers Ju 87, and no production orders were placed.

    Yes, the fuselage is almost done. It is longer than one sheet of foam, so i have to divide it. I'm working on the wing now.
