Was it to fly with its wings as swept back as that? A smooth ride at low level, yes. But also crash prone surely?

I think the model is wrong, maybe somebody destroyed the pivots...

Nope, sweeping the wings all the way back to 90 degrees turning you to a lifting body was a 'thing' for a while. This model locates the pivots outboard to make it work.

I particularly liked the scissor-wing, low-altitude, lifting body bomber.
