Its a GD/Convair design. It was featured on an advert or brochure posted somewhere (maybe here or Facebook?) from the 1970s. I'll try and locate this.

The San Diego Air & Space Museum (SDASM) Archives have just posted a mother lode of three-views, blueprints, illustrations, etc. of various Consolidated/Convair, Brewster, Boeing, Curtiss, Douglas, Grumman, Lockheed, Tucker(!), etc., projects (built and unbuilt) roughly dating from the 1930s-1950s.

If I had the time, I'd list them all - but it is pretty overwhelming.

Take a look for yourselves. Note, as more photos/images are posted to their site, the further back they will move. Unfortunately, they haven't been posted as a distinct set.

Here's the link:

Here are some examples. These are from the "Convair A-44 design study":

A lot of those drawings are copyright Alan Griffiths.
