I like these SST airliners a lot, BW!

You've got a very artistic eye for livery!

Well done!

OK;

One possibly named after sodium carboxylate;

Another named after a dialect from the Kochi region of Japan; &

The third after a monoamine neurotransmitter with more functions than most people realise.

Different! ;)

Would neurotransmitters get you there faster than an SST?

Those leaflets are incredibly well done.

You've got some mad graphic design skills, my friend!

Now if Air Seritonia's ticket desk would just answer the phone. Are those guys asleep or something?

Thank you, everyone! @Brian You should file a complaint to them when you get through. ;)

Here's a new one for you all. This one is kind of a rare and weird one, but it's an actual patented Fairchild/Republic design for the AFTI (Advanced Fighter Technology Integrator) program.





The patent:

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Nice profiles.

One assumes it relies on body lift.  I would be keen to see more about this particular design though.

Another one! Here's two profiles of the unbuilt McDonnell Douglas Model 225 VFX, one in a F-14 "Early A" style scheme, and the classic Vandy 1 black. ;)

They are indeed  :smiley:  According to Scott Lowther, the Model 225A "was in part derived from the F-4(FVS) studies" for a variable-geometry Phantom derivative. http://www.aerospaceprojectsreview.com/blog/?p=1674

Can I have a request of sorts? Web works funny in my country, it took me 5 minutes you were using Imgur as a picture host. Can't complain but it's banned for some reason around here and proxy services regularly fail, because it requires some sort of web interaction. But if know the URL,  I can get the pictures through the proxies without a hassle. Would it be possible to add the adresses as well?

Never mind, I discovered I could the adresses after saving the whole page, thanks.

Thanks guys!

@Tahsin, certainly, will do! If you don't mind me asking, what country are you from that requires you use a VPN? I could try switching image hosting sites to one that isn't blocked so you don't have to save the page.

Here's something new, a hypersonic bomber based on an unknown McDonnell Douglas hypersonic concept (image below). I couldn't find any information on it, unfortunately.

I surf at web cafes, I will save threads anyhow. The links much appreciated. Thank you.

And yes, the atmospheric shot is really cool.

I see. You're welcome, and thank you!

Here's a profile of the Iranian Saeqeh-80 or simply Saeqeh/Saegeh. It was difficult finding any photographs or information of this particular production version (it may have been a prototype judging by the paint scheme, but that cannot be confirmed either), but I think I got it relatively accurate.

I've got the Omega-Models kit of this one.  Real tempting to do an operational scheme.
