I really like it, it looks kind of like an American DH Vampire

BTW:  Last I checked, this my 1,000 post...
That being said, I'd like to remind everybody in a manner reminiscent of the SNL bit on Julian Assange, that no matter how I die: It was murder (even if there was a suicide note or a video of me peacefully dying in my sleep); should I be framed for a criminal offense or disappear, you know to blame.

PACOPEPE: very nice execution -- it looks especially dangerous viewed from the front  :thumbsup:

As for the XP-59, it was a real project (Bell's Model 20) but it was never built (and neither was the similar Model 19 for the Navy). I have prepared the attachment below for you so you can see the evolution of that project.

Stéphane: thanks for posting these. Those two colour images were among my very first attempts at recreating unbuilt project aircraft in pixels (along with some XP-38 variations). Whifs soon followed ... although I don't even remember how many years back that all was now ...  :blink:

Ooo, lovely!
In between jobs and homes.  New job starts soon, then search for new home, space for hobby room and display cases is non-negotiable.
