Thanks!
The top one was the P.99 "real" project.

A mysterious historian, X.Tauf, pretends this is the true genesis of the P-38 Lightning:
- first a single-boom plane
- then a vertical zwilling, with intermeshing propellers
- then a vertical twin-boom biplane
(- then a horizontal twin-boom monoplane)
Who knows? Maybe this is the secret truth...

Great stuff, mon ami!

I especially like the second one with two P-38s stacked on top of each other like that.

Most delightful, Tophe!
