ARC's Silly Week claims another one ;)
It's a crappy self-made pic of a Lockheed Unmanned Combat Armed Rotorcraft (UCAR), BTW

oh damn! It's several years old fake. I think a contractor staff that made canopy glass with such a level of abberations, would be executed with gunfire immidiately

Not fakes, just what-Ifs ...   ;)

The twin-engined Martin is said to be from a patent, the Northrop
design with lift engines has similarities to the close support fighter
from around 1965, the Bell "aira designs", don't know if there ever
were such derivatives of the Airacuda and the "gyro" seems to be
a Gyrodyne with contra props with ABC rotor, I would think, it is
purely fictional ...

No, I think the author's just let his (I'm assuming it's a 'he') imagination run free without the constraints of real life or real history getting in the way. Nothing wrong with that; it's what the What-If forum thrives on, for example.

I hadn't seen this site before; there are some interesting design ideas.

They are "real" insofar as they are based on actual patent drawings.

And so the endless circle of life comes to an end, meaningless and grim. Why did they live, and why did they die? No reason. Two hundred million years of evolution snuffed out, for in the end Nature is horrific and teaches us nothing

More explanations here:
http://www.fantastic-plastic.com/Rheinmetal-BorsigVTOL.htm,

Well, we probably have to call it "real", Fantastic Plastic thankfully has it in the
section "concept aircraft", and a "concept" can be an idea, someone had, when
he was totally stoned !
But, as we said in another thread, such concepts at least were useful for keeping
the designers away from the front ... although, I can imagine, that for such a design.
the designer would have been sent there straight !   ;D
