What if P-66 evolved into a serious Fighter?

Lets begin with Corsair fuselage and Zero wings and tail plane.





Maroon parts would need some scratch or further research. This way we get a Vanguard on steroids with a very powerful engine.

P-64 with a R2600 or R2800 in the nose; might need the tail moved aft for weight and balance purposes.  Perhaps fit a derivative of a Mustang wing?

... and, what if a more advanced wing, than that of Zero, for Super Vanguard?



... Yes. It is suggested by Evan's comment a propos P-64.

I do have one of these in the stash - was planning to do either as Swedish (they did order after all), or as Royal Netherlands East Indies Army Air Force or Australian.

All hail the God of Frustration!!!
