That looks nice!  An Aesthetic blend of streamlined and not so streamlined.  I could see it as a step in airliner evolution.

Now *that* is definitely rough-field landing gear, taking the experiments of the USAAF in the early Forties to a whole 'nother level.

That works well, too.  A triple-engined C-47/DC-3 was tested as Conroy's "Tri-Turbo Three",  with turboprops, and this looks like a good ancestor for it.
