The P-45Z was easy to "build", thanks, but the push-pull version may be more complicated now...
Ahem, the shadows are unperfect but I have tried...

What a brilliant, 'out-of-the-box' concept.  I keep imagining it in old Swedish markings.
A big 'thank you' to whoever it was that invented the OptiVisor!

This is a quick-and-dirty (translation - I didn't put a lot of effort into the details) representation of the Bell Model 17, which was the losing competitor to the P-45.  Two prototypes were built.  Top view shows the first Model 17 in its delivery markings.  Lower view shows the second prototype, in which the turbocharger had been deleted, in a later camouflage finish.  Enjoy!

Cool!   Though I hope the firewall in front of the engine was a good one...

Oh, yeah!!  I hope, too, that the ammunition boxes are not placed immediately in front of that firewall; placing them there could cause all sorts of problems.

Thinking other ways, that tureet looks perfectly placed to be replaced by an early interation of an R2 unit.

Love your P-45 Cayuse   :-*  She's ugly ... in a good way  :smiley:

On the Bell Model 17, how about an XP-46B Airaclipper with the engine moved forward slightly and the turret mounted behind it for better tranverse?
