Just by judging, what the rotor would do to the tail fin, I would regard
this as a fake !   ;)
Lack of any visible anti-torque mechanism makes me agree this a fake

Why would an autogyro need an antitorque rotor?
"DARPA Hard"  It ain't what it use to be.

Correct, but an autogyro wouldn't be a true V/STOL aircraft. This thing looks like
a typical April fool to me.

Pretty sure a fake, I think. "Bird models" seems to be one of those companies
mixing up real projects with fakes in their catalogue, for what reason whatsoever ... 
The "Sack Kreisflügeljäger" to me is another example, the model seems to be
based on the Bf 109 with a circular wing, as proposed by Artur Sack. Some true
facts and a lot of imagination and who can say for sure, that there wasn't a sketch
on the back of an envelope ?   ::)

That Bird Models Arado kit sure reminds me of this apparently WWII vintage photo of an aircraft or full size mockup that turns up occasionally.

If it's by Jozef Gatial, I would tend to think it's a real project. Can't think of him doing fake stuff, at least I can't recall him doing so.

I presume that this artwork is also by Jozef Gatial based on the model kit of the MiG-37 "Ferret E" by Italeri and Testors.
