Maveric said:Great find Justo,
but 2times the model 4? If you have, please post some technical data to all your posted projects.
Great thanks, Servus Maveric
Maybe it had the looks but infact it
was a small-see dimensions- conventional pursuit design...
lark said:The Bell model 2 is in fact the model 11.
(maybe there's confusion with Roman figure II)
The design was smaller than the P-39.
It had a span of just 30ft ,four ft less than the Airacobra.
Fuselage lenght 28fr 10in.
Selected powerplant Allison V-1710-37 engine.
The model 11 was apparently in response to an Air Corps competition in 1939.
Bell's priiminary design wa completed during the middle of 1939
and may possibly have been an internal designs study in preparation
for the R40-C competition.
