Great work



I still think that this design was a lost opportunity.
I think it would have made a great Close Air Support (CAS) aircraft for the USMC, what with its built in redundancy (both engines being interconnected in case of an engine failure & the effort that was required to actually destroy the prototype!)

Pity!

Could you do a CAS scene of the flying pancake - armed and firing cannon and rockets into an enemy beachhead?

I second that request but in either RAF Far Eastern Colours or better yet RNZAF WWII colours (say in something similar to that worn by kiwi F-4Us?
