It's nice when your children buy what you want, not what your wife thinks you should want, for your birthday/Christmas/Fathers' Day. ;) :P

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Elecrajet mixed power electric and jet factory or homebuilt sport plane 1/48 (unfinished)

Started life as a Heller P-39Q, V-tail is Grumman Panther tailplane halves, canopy also from a Panther I think. Concept being that it would use both forms of power together for take off (and climbing or maneuvering), then for cruise it would use only the electric motor with the turbine at idle running a generator to supply a on the go trickle charge for the batteries to extend their run time, when the charge of the batteries gets too low the electric motor would be shut off and the prop feathered and the turbine would provide all propulsion for flight while also recharging the batteries, when the batteries are charged enough the electric motor would be restarted again. The red lines around the cockpit area and down the fuselage sides are the breakaway points for a parachute fitted escape capsule (similar to what a F-111 uses) for if there is a inflight emergency so that the pilot can safely get away from all the flammable stuff (lithium batteries, jet fuel, turbine etc...).

















Seems like I am onto something with this, not exactly the same as what I have in mind for my concept but similar being developed by Rolls Royce:

You have a good eye for proportion BradF.  This looks "right".

Personally I think it looks a bit long in the nose area, but it would need to be as the turbine and generator would be behind the cockpit area so the electric motor and some of the battery cells would need to be quite far forward to balance it out. There would be more battery cells in the wing's near the root and possibly around the main mono-wheel. Fuel tanks for the turbine would be just outboard of the wing battery cells.
