What about a VG Cougar?

Alternatively, what if the RAAF got the Cougar instead of the Avon Sabre?

Having bought a cheap old Revell B-57 and then discovered that it's 1/76th instead of 1/72nd (yes it is enough to make a difference), I can totally empathise Jeff.

My suggestion? Pick the least accurate one and scaleorama it into something totally different... :wacko:

That variable geometry set-up is rather interesting with the fixed portion also including the air intakes.

Maybe this design could be applied to a Sukhoi Fitter as well? Moving the intakes to the fixed portion of the wing could free up the nose for a big radar. F-105 intakes?  :wacko:

Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

Considering the gently rounded profile of the thing, could you chop the edges of the wings and the tail feathers, put a squared off (vector) tail pipe on it, and call it a stealthy Cougar?  If you really want some work, you could rework the landing gear doors, and mod how the canopy attaches to the fuselage.

How about converting the 'non-standard' Revell Cougar into an AS-1 Kennel-style anti-shipping missile? (Being carrier launched, it could even been recoverable -- although you'd have to be brave to be on that flightdeck  ;D )

I like your thinking! :thumbsup:

Remember the glove vanes on early F-14's?   How about putting something similar on the Panther/Cougar along the trailing edge of the wing section behind the air intakes?    Why?   I have no idea.  :blink: :blink: :blink:
