Postwar Aircraft Projects / Re: A-4X

From a modelers forum. However, they do not reveal the origination of the idea.
User ysi_maniac is fond of creating drawings like this - don't place much faith in them being in any way official, just his own imagination.

Ok, it's a pity.
Couldn't find it via reverse picture search, too, but the big two bladed props
and the big wheels make me think of a rubber band powered model ...

Yes my dear Jemiba,

and maybe it was belonged to postwar,just my suggesting ?.

M-55 supersonic passenger plane

http://alternathistory.com/m-55-sverkhzvukovoi-passazhirskii-samolet

"late in 1959 OKB V.m. Myasischev studies on passenger sverhzvukovomu launched the "55". Study several options showed that the most appropriate variant based on the m-50 bomber with M16-17. But already in the following year over the preferred layout by type of aircraft considered m-56 bomber.
In fact, it was the development of the project "53(bottom two pictures)". Considered 3 options:
(1)55A : designed to 40 passengers, had two engines
(2)55b(55Б) : designed to 85 passengers, had four engines(Top picture? This design seems to have 4 engines. Air intake shape is little different compared with "53" SST, and this design had a single vertical tail stabilizer.)
(3)55B : high-wing monoplane with a forward horizontal plumage. Under the triangular wing,
    on the sides of the fuselage in two packages were placed six engines VC-15 m.

The plane was calculated at the speed of 2300-2650 km/h at altitudes of up to 22 km. In the shipping version (takeoff weight 245 t) he could be operated on routes with a length of 6000-6500 km with 5% fuel. While the total number of passengers must not exceed 50. Takeoff was 3500 m, mileage-1500-1700 m With 100-120 passengers was within the range 3500-4000 km.
These were the first in the USSR passenger supersonic aircraft projects. Low aerodynamic airframe and high unit costs of fuel engines prevented the boundary of 1950-60-ies to create a supersonic airliner, competitive dozvukovym machines."

Bottom drawing shows M-55B which Triton-san already showed us.

So 55A is mystery.

Perhaps searching would be easier, if the source would be given ?  ::)
