I was just looking at the TP-63E and thinking:  what if you removed the front cockpit and smoothed it over and added some additional exhaust stubs so as to give it a second engine?  Maybe turn it into a twin engined race plane?

Either need contra-props or a combining gearbox and one big honking prop (six-or seven- bladed one?) and you would definitely need to add more cooling capacity (I'd argue for either an under-fuselage radiator/oil cooler installation (steering clear of the exhaust flow from the existing cooling system) or go with large leading edge radiator and oil cooler installations for both engines that would also replace the existing cooling system.  Or go with both (smaller) leading edge and under-fuselage systems and remove the existing cooling system.  This last is what I'm considering for a Ki-64-II with a combining gearbox driving one large propeller.

A quickie twin-engined racer. Other than substituting another engine for the front cockpit, the nose has been shortened for contraprops and a P-51D belly radiator bath has been added (for the second engine). That radiator bath adds a little side area to help counter the effects of that second set of propeller blades. The fin and rudder have also been enlarged (although this aircraft would need even larger tailplanes ... but you can get away with madness when it's a racer).

Minor stuff was lowering the canopy (to make it more racer-ish), deleting the TP-63E's belly fuel tank, and moving the radio mast aft.

Hmm, with those other P-63 variants, can we get an XP-63D with a bubble canopy?  I keep thinking that could make for a nice blend with an L-39-2.

Random idea:  RAF PR conversion of P-43, maybe in PR Blue such as below:




One could say that in 1941, the RAF, eager to take any fighters takes on a small batch of P-43s.  Deciding they are not suitable as fighters they are converted to recon birds taking advantage of their altitude performance.
