The LTV V-507 looks like a French Mirage... Is there any influence or cooperation explaining?

You're sharp sighted, Tophe !
In Liebert/Buyck "Le Mirage F1" it is described,how engineers from Dassault
travelled to Dallas to assist Vought in the design of the VFX contender.
It takes a long time, before all mistakes are made ...

           Not sure why this thread isn't tied in with this one, but it has a number of pics of Vought's mock-up & I saw a couple of posts mentioning Dassault's involvement.

It was, but as it's an art thread and not a research thread like the other one, it doesn't belong in that thread. I do need to get back to work on these, though. I've been busy.

Haven't updated this in awhile, but I got some work done on the 507 today, so things are progressing. Since I found new references for the canopy, I'll probably change the 225A's to that so it's not using an F-15B's...  ;D

Well here's the new more-accurate canopy. It's scary how well it fits in with the F-15B one. The windscreens are the same. I stuck a support in the middle of the canopy like how the F-14 picked one up between G-303G mockup and prototype stages.

I'll be covering F-14 alternatives (in 5-view) when I get to the 70's installment of my book. Until then...it the 50's for me.
Windows/PCs/anything Microsoft sucks.

I best hurry and get these done, then. After seeing your work finished, I doubt I'd want to continue mine.  :P ;D

You should continue whatever you have planned regardless of what other people are doing. Your line work might prove to be a valuable resource to someone else. Besides...it will be a while before I move to this era. I have quite a bit of work o finish on my first book. :P

I know, I know.  :P Actually, though, I'm a big fan of your work and I'd like to get some pointers from you sometime to help get to your level. I've been working on the VFX off-and-on for just about a year now and I'd hate to be left in the dust when it comes time for me to shade and color (and start doing profiles of) the G-303D.  ;D

Thought you all might like to see what eventually became of that line art.  Click on the image below to see the picture at 100% or view it at my DeviantArt page.  It's the Vought V-507, LTV's submission to the VFX competition actually won by the Grumman Tomcat.  Take a look at the "build thread" over at the Beyond the Sprues Forums to see the step-by-step of the process of creating the profile.



Cheers,

Logan
