That's a good news. Can't wait to see more  :D

When I grew up, I would make a scratch build of this aircraft...

Love it and love the concept of the USAF adopting the VFX as an interceptor to replace the F-106. 

Toyed with a similar idea years ago, Grumman F-14 though.  It would have made a very interesting alt USAF and perhaps would have seen a more multi-role F-15 much earlier, a true replacement for the F-4.

Belated "Thank You!" for the kind words, guys!

If the forum had spoiler tags, I'd use them here.



Cheers,

Logan

A single-engine Bf-109 derivative similar to the Yak-15?  It could be an interesting inspiration for using Igor's conversion.

Heinkel put a jet engine on He 100?

You all may remember that Talos shared the line art for this project some time ago, so I don't mind giving an actual preview of this next profile. I don't have the panel lines on this one and the canopy will likely change eventually, but it's getting there. I need to add some weathering and put a few dents in the new part, but it's coming along alright so far.



Anyway, it should give you some idea of what we're working on. You could probably approximate the look pretty closely with a Yak-15 and He 100 kitbash if you were so inclined.

Cheers,

Logan

Now that looks very nice, and quite promising.  I wonder if the nose from Igor's single-engine Bf109TL conversion would work?  I have several of those.

Interesting Logan, and yet seems such a natural progression for a simple jet fighter for the closing years of the Reich's Luftwaffe!

I'm not sure if you do requests but I was thinking if you have any interest in the following

WWII Era

P-61 / F-15 Reporter Hybrid
Concept: P-61 without the gunner, the radar operator behind the pilot, and the XP-61E/XF-15 Reporter's aft fuselage
Purpose: Looks cooler, and is more practical as the P-61 never needed a turret-operator in practice (plus, the gunner wasn't even fitted always)
Other: Since bubble canopies weren't always used, a canopy configuration something like the A6M, or early Hawker Typhoon, or Grumman XF5F-5, which used metal bracing and multiple window-panels to provide the canopy shape would definitely suffice.

P-65 Tigercat
Concept: F7F-3 in USAAF colors
Purpose: Would have been awesome in USAAF service


Post-War Era

F8U-3 Crusader III
Concept: F8U-3 in USN colors
Purpose: The F8U-3 was a better performer than the F-4 in agility and speed and it looked WAY cooler
Other: It was possible to carry a gun-pack in the rear-fuselage if the need for a gun came into play...


Even if you do take any requests: I don't expect anybody to do all of them, I'd be mostly happy if *any* were done.  It's hard work to make drawings like yours.

A night fighter variant of the P-61F has been planned for some time, and if I can ever discover some free time lying around my house, again, I may actually get to it.

I think the Tigercat is neat, but there are USAAF Tigercats scattered around the internet, already, so that's not something I'd do.

As far as the F8U-3 goes, you might see a full profile set from Talos one of these days, but not me. He likes it, but I find the Crusader III to be absolutely hideous and refuse to do a profile of it. Ugly as sin. No me gusta.

Cheers,

Logan
