Looking at this updated P-36 makes me wonder how it would go as a development of the proposed Model 75K which was to have the 1,200-1,500 hp Pratt & Whitney R-2180 Twin Hornet radial especially if one was to also add a turbosupercharger (say from the B-17).

Those last two are beautiful.  To go with them, how about a de-mil'd Spitfire Mk.21 with contra-props and the windscreen and canopy from the "Speed Spitfire" of just before WW II?  It could be in the markings of an English club

The F-5 is perfect for this treatment and you've got a great sense of what the most eye-catching scheme for it might be.

Very well done!

Those are some very nice profiles indeed and we share the same opinion on the long-forgotten Vanguard.

Your rendering of that desert scheme is especially nice.
