AFAIK there were indeed two prototypes build by the end of the war and testings went on. What came in their way  most negatively though was the lost war...  :P

a German bomber meant for a 1946 air-battle
Except that it would not have been ready before 1950...

Amerika Bomber
...and would not have come half way, with weapons that is.

Yes, I agree. Most likely it would have not had the chance to do "that job", the Allies would have stopped it.
But  it does have a very interesting history about it. 

Dsawan, do not compare our aircraft to the CFS-3 !
Our airplanes and game looks much cooler  8)

If germany had a successful strategic bomber like the Lancaster the outcome could have been very different!

What came in their way  most negatively though was the lost war.

Fact is the design was never able to meet the expectations.
One of the typical Messerschmitt attempts to gain money from convincing the RLM that he could do wonders.
He couldn't.
The Me 264, if it ever would have been developed into a combat ready plane, would have been able to do some maritime patrol at best.
Mind you: The prototypes with a takeoff weight of 21 tons already weren't capable of providing the promised figures.
With military equipment, the weight would have had to be increased to 43 tons and the range would barely have been enough to visit the Azores from the french coast, that's all.
A wet dream of Mr. Goering, powered by Mr. Messerschmitt, underpinned by nothing more than a concept aircraft which was known never to be able to fulfill any task it was designed for.

Yes it looks sleek.
That's almost as much positive as there is to say about the 264.

Nevertheless such mod would of course be welcome 8)

Thx! I'm trying this in DBW but it says "B-24..." and no Me-264 can be seen only the B-24. Am I right and this ain't for DBW so far to test!?  :-[

For the good point that the Me-264 bombers lacked  range and carrying capacity at range,

Couldn't the Me-264 have been air-air refueled and reached New York and back?

I think I heard that  an air-air refueling company had actually been started for commercial reasons in the 1930s?  and might have let the Me-264 reach New York and back? (this is hopefully not to hijack the thread but to add to the possibility of the Me-264  reaching New York and back?).
