Looks like a radical development inspired by Grumman's "Nutcracker" concept for the VSTOL-A program.

The mechanical engineering would be very challenging to make it all work and remain light weight.

Even the In-progress is looking great. Who are these aliens who build so nicely and in the midst of clean work benches?  ???

Does anyone know of a kit of the Bell Eagle Eye (see below) other than the 1/72 Unicraft one?  I would really like one in either 1/48 or 1/35.
