The Junkers Ef-126 / Ef-127 was an experimental fighter that was proposed as a response to the "Emergency Fighter Program" request for proposal issued by the Luftwaffe High Command.
The type featured 2 MG 151 mm canons on each side of the cockpit (similar to the He162 Salamander). While the initial design was supposed to use a single Argus As 014 pulse-jet engine, it was quickly found to be underpowered in that configuration. Various alternative propulsion options were explored, including a dual Argus As 014 configuration, a Walther 509C rocket motor, like that carried by the Me263 experimental fighter, and a single Jumo 226 pulse-jet.
The Das Werk Ef-126 / Ef-127 kit is designed to be built in one of three main version, with countless variations of final configuration possible.
It can be built with or without booster rockets, in the takeoff configuration (sitting on the trolley), in the landing configuration (with the landing skid deployed), in a factory assembly configuration (with or without engines installed and resting on the wooden factory cradle) and in a number of various tail configurations.
Three possible versions can be built:
