I really like this.  Its stubby appearance reminds me a little of the AVX Future Vertical Lift contender.
My inspiration was the Sikorski Defiant helicopter

How about a USMC/USN WWII version?  Perfect to assist ambitious assaults... ;)

Direct comparison with the Chinook. It's roomier in the Chinook and those turbines provide a lot more power.

I made a jet version of the XP-67 Moonbat.

I gave it J47 turbojets and had to redo the engine cowlings. I also added 4 20mm and 2 30mm cannons instead of the projected 6 37mm cannons. The greenhouse canopy was replaced with an enlarged Mustange bubble canopy.

How would you go sweeping back the outer wings?

After a little research, the J47's would weight 1000 pounds more than the engines I wanted to replace.

If I tried to modify what I already have, that would be extremely hard. I would need to make/find a new set of wings and engine pods. And that would radically change the look of it and it's not what I want. A swept wing version would look similar to a swept wing Me262 with the engines buried in the fuselage.

As you can see the J47's are very large and so I need to redo the landing gear to fold inward up against the wing instead of inside the engine nacelle.

I'm trying to keep it Mid-1940's timeframe. J85 would be too modern. J47 is stretching it too.

Of course, I get it.    Maybe plans were dusted off when S.E.A. scaled up.

I've been doing some Kriegsmarine aviation. The bombers and torpedo planes textures are not done. The Fighters are. This is 2 Toni Naval fighters with the standard Emil model in front. Only difference with the T has a wider wingspan and arrestor gear. Hard to tell from this angle.

And this is me attempting to pick up something I dropped in 2009. Naval Stuka work in progress. Basically done, I still need to flesh out the textures.

Hmm, a German "hose-nose".  What engine - a 4-row double-BMW-801 ?

I don't remember what the donor aircraft model was but it's 2 rows of 7 cylinders. The measurements are 1.1M in diameter and 0.5m in length. A BMW 801 would look huge on this plane. It would turn it from a hose-nose to a droop snoot.

EDIT: I just did a check with a Ju-88 model vs this ship. It would only make the cowling .5 meters longer and slightly narrower for some reason.
