Good research, hesham,
it would be interesting nevertheless, where you found that photo with its caption.

I'd like to offer the possibility that this is a the Fairchild M-171 "Fighter Bomber" or M-171A "Advanced Base Fighter". The connection is tenuous but based on:

1) While we know what everyone else's T40-based fighter concepts look like, we don't know what Fairchild's looked like.

2) This is not a tail-sitter, but looks like a deflected thrust wing (multiple flap segments) which is very consistent with Fairchild's research thrust.

3) The blue shading/wash technique used to highlight the canopy and more importantly the control surfaces does look like that applied on other period Fairchild in-house models.

Again, this is rather speculative, but may be worth discussion.

From an ebay auction. This photo looks familiar to me and think it has been posted elsewhere on this forum but I cant find. Any idea which weymann machine this is?

A big mistake from them,it's De Monge aircraft.

Has someone seen this very strange single-tail modification of the Mitchell, and was this real of a photomontage? (it would be such a poor job of the latter that I'm inclined to think it could be real) I know the planned Super Strafer variant was to have a single-tail, but the markings seem to indicate this is earlier.

Sorry in advance if the question has already been asked and/or answered elsewhere.
