Bloomin' brilliant, makes me wish I had the bits to do something similar with an F86F and an F86K, thus eliminating the need for the pod.
I bet the finished article is gonna be fantastic. Anticipation hurts.    ;)
If I don't plan it, it can't go wrong!

If it's great, I did it. If it's naff, I found it.

Thanks pigflyer ----

I've had on my mind for quite sometime a different Twin Sabre Dog, a turbo-prop powered one. It would follow along the lines of this project below.  But because a swept-winged Twin Fuselage doesn't really look particularly good in my view, I would use a FJ-4 wing instead of the Sabre wing.

This project below though isn't for a turbo-prop (although it could quite well be), it's my idea for an ultimate 'piston-engine' powered aircraft.
The idea is it's powered by a Rolls Royce Crecy, not the V-12 that got built, but by a theoretical version of the engine that a Rolls Royce engine expert had theorized. It would have been a 24 cylinder 'X' configured engine of 39 litres and put out just over 8000 hp.

So a twinned fuselage version of below would make a pretty formidable attack plane in my opinion.

Those contra-props really make this baby sing!

Great stuff, Robert!

To echo Brian's statement.

Is right on, kind of build I'd like to have done. :)

Not done much at all lately except a bit of research. I was on the Secret Projects forum when I came across an entry made by apophenia (Steven). Steven has been doing a Canadair designation compilation list and I PM'ed him to see if there was one that was not used around the time of my backstory and a bit before the Canadair CL-13 Sabre. He replied with three or four possibilities, one which fitted quite well into my timeline. So this project will be called a Canadair CL-10 Twin Fury. I'm in the process of rewriting my backstory which will make it a little less convoluted.

With Canadian roundels or else, the enjoyment in this twin-plane will be high! :-*
