« on: November 27, 2012, 09:37:36 am »
Is there anyone who can ID this plane for me?

Is this a fake Picture ?!

Definitely a fake, based on a Concorde I believe.

Canards similar to the Tu-144 and RAF roundels? I like the look of it in that classic grey/green scheme though. Maybe Her Majesty was tired of globetrotting on the BAe 146's.  ;)

Looks similar to the Boeing SST as well as the Concorde.  Didn't somebody on the What-If boards make that?

It is definitely a slightly modified Concorde scale model in order to represent the proposed bomber version even with some artistic licence like formard canards (like Tu-144D).


The liverage is obviously the same adopted by AVRO Vulcan during 70's and 80's.


Anyway I realized some years ago a three view of the actual Concorde Bomber proposal, as follows:

The proposed liverage was the typical anti-flash white of mid 60's for all the V Bombers.

Since this is a fake loosely based on a real project, and not produced by a forum member, I elected to move this topic to the "Speculative" section.

Here is my own take on the "Bombcorde" which I did a couple of years ago, both in black and white versions.
I'm also tossing in a bomber version of the Tupolev Tu-144 for good measure...
