*Kit Description:
Alex S. Tremulis is best known as an automotive designer. However, he enlisted in the Army following Pearl Harbor and, in 1944, joined the Army Air Corps’ R&D team at Wright Field outside Dayton, Ohio, to design advanced concept aircraft. One of these, dubbed the “Zero Fighter,” was a rocket-powered vertical take-off fighter intended to operate at extreme altitudes.
Tremulis envisioned a one-man rocket plane launched atop a liquid-fueled booster. (This was before the Allies were aware of Germany’s V-2.) The booster would propel the fighter on a sub-orbital or even orbital trajectory. Upon completion of the mission, the swept-winged aircraft would glide back to earth and land like a conventional airplane.
Although the Zero Fighter never made it beyond the design stage, many of its concepts helped the Air Force develop the X-20 Dyna-Soar 15 years later.
