I'd like to share my 1/72 take on the Convair Model 200 V/STOL fighter project. It's scratch built from plastic card, aside from the AIM-7/-9s, wheels and cockpit details. There's a few shape errors, but this was a very enjoyable experience. I'm hoping to build some more unbuilt projects soon, especially the 1970s/1980s Navy proposals. More pictures on the Britmodeller thread here. Thanks for looking!

One of my favorites. Can't help but wonder how things might have played out had they chose that instead of the XFV-12A.

It's one of my favorites too. It's a great looking design and it would at least have gotten off the ground as opposed to that XFV-12 disaster. I'd like to tackle something like the North American FX next, but I'm unsure about those complex curves.

Brilliant work Sir! That is awesome.
Thank you!

You mentioned some minor shape issues. Don't worry about it. This was a paper project. You can guarantee that if a prototype was built, it would NOT be 100 %like the drawings.
