Static Submarine modelers unite!

Because I plan to have the next update of my website entirely about submarines (centerpiece : Revell biggie), I also plan a large article about "flying subs", including the real projects beside the well-known "VTTBOTS" yellow manta.

So here are the projects I have located :
- 50s patent
- Convair 60s project (press articles said there were 16 companies which replied to the US Navy call for projects . What about the others?)
- Hiller (but I have only a written description in Jay Spenser's book . Any pix around ?)
- russian WW2 project (but copied from a russian mag so i have no idea of the history of the thing. Looks like an April's fool joke to me . I have been told there is a 1/72 kit made of this one but which manufacturer ?

If you can help me complete this list (I am sure there must be a German Secret Weapon Flying Sub somewhere ????)

To give you an idea of what I want to do here is a link to my article (many pages in French sorry ) about tracked subs / sub tanks :
