I used a 3 view uploaded on the Secret Projects Forum as a basis.
I've seen the model you're talking about, with the swept wings, but once I looked at the pictures of the real aircraft I realized the wings were simply not swept back at all. I honestly don't know why he built his model that way.

Thanks for the clarification. It does look more 30's like with the straight wings. I know Gabriel Stern tries to be accurate (even when building aircraft that never flew) so I'd chalk this to a reference error on his part. Still looks good, just not the same as the real design.

Some more today ;)



I've taken a look at the last posts in the request thread and did a couple of quick ones:

-for Artoor_K, it's not a F-4D, but I hope it can help


-for arc3371


And mad props to who can get what "country" this Gripen comes from ;)


Cheers!

Really liked the Phantom (which area always phreakishly phantastic to me, being a St. Louis native) and the Gripen.  Is it me, or does the Gripen look a bit like the Convair model 200?

Fly?  Yes.  Land?  No.

It's not you - there is a definite resemblance, though the Model 200 did have lift engines:





In fact, if you wanted to do a VTOL Gripen, you would probably get something akin to the Model 200...though you might want to borrow some sub-scale F-14 intakes.
All hail the God of Frustration!!!

Funny that.  I see the Model 200s intakes as being somewhat more derivative of the NA Vigilante's intakes.  Have to wonder whether the Convair guys ever considered a shaft-driven lift fan in front, as opposed to the lift engines.  Perhaps at that time it may not have been possible.  Cool design.  It's on my rendering/illustration list.

Vigilante intakes would probably work as well.  Of course, now you have me thinking of a VTOL Vigilante with multiple lift engines... :-\

Feel sure those paintings were in aviation magazines (Air Progress?) of the 1960s.
