Lockheed L-206-3 - a packplane derivative of the design that would become the C-130. Just think - this...thing...could have been the Herk!  ;-)

Must say, has notable aesthetics.
Recommend Constellation like tri-tail to lower total height.  Avoid costs of building higher hangers and doors.

I thought it was just a whimsical whiff profile! That's some beer gut!

Would be an interesting whiff from a C-130, especially if you had some "special duty" pods worked up.  Say, a "Spectre" attack gunship pod, a SAR pod, a MPA pod, a communications jamming/control pod, a command and control pod, an AEW pod with British-style fore-and aft-scanning radar antennae, various special purpose cargo pods - bulk solid, bulk liquids of different types, vehicles of different types, paratroop drop,  and so on.

Very cool! I'm guessing that the engines were twin GE J47s geared to drive the single props. How about a follow-on with contra-rotating propellers? (From 1949, NACA was testing an AS Python specifically for its contraprops.)

If you're looking for an engine designation for your turboprop Tornado, you might need to 'recycle'. There are no gaps in the US 'T' for turboprop/turboshaft range until the T59 ... but there are a couple of cancelled projects in the right number range ...

The best option would probably be T41 for GE's own cancelled TG-110 (a TG-100/T31 derivative). AFAIK, the J47/TG-190 turbojet was the last internal GE 'TG' designation (maybe Jon knows otherwise?). So, your 'T41-GE-1' could have the GE corporate designation 'TG-200'  ;)

That works! And for those not averse to 1:72, Anigrand does an XA2J-1.
