Thanks Paul & Elider, are their any artwork shots or model photos to go with it by any chance as i think this one could be buildable :D. I should be able to do it from the drawing but an impression or model gives a better feel for the shape and contours of the aircraft to work upon.

Cheers

Looks like a F11F Tiger and a MiG-25 had an unfortunate accident in a dark alley...

The side profile rather makes me think "Tornado".
In want of hobby space!  The kitchen table is never stable.  Still managing to get some building done.

There was a model done for the book some years ago from Aero Publishers on US Navy Fighters (by Lloyd Jones?).  It also had these three-views.  As I understand it, this was the "supersonic" variant of the Grumman set of design studies for carrying the Bendix "Eagle" in competition with what won as the F6D.  From data I've read, and Jay Miller has shown me, the "high-subsonic" variant was a modified "Intruder" and the "low=subsonic" variant was a modified S2F-1 though I can see a W2F-1 being used later.

Found this post searching about the F-12F. This plane was impressive... any model built?  
King Arthur: Can we come up and have a look?
French Soldier: Of course not. You're English types.
King Arthur: What are you then?
French Soldier: I'm French. Why do you think I have this outrageous accent, you silly king?

Well regardless I would rather take my chance out there on the ocean, that to stay here and die on this poo-hole island spending the rest of my life talking to a gosh darn VOLLEYBALL.
