Is there anyone who knows what the
Convair 'Duck' is ? (not Buck Duck)

Production was to have been at Fort Worth but
all were cancelled.

What makes you think that the Convair "Duck" is not identical to the "Buck Duck"? The information that "all were cancelled" might be erroneous. I've read the same about the Buck Duck, but of course some Buck Duck's were actually built.

I found these info in 'General Dynamics Aircraft and their Predecessors'
published by Putnam in 1990 and written by John Wegg.

Text on page 221 in the Convair Selected Projects
mentions...The USAF allocated twelve serials (55-3490/3501) for this
vehicle,details of which have not been released.
Production... see first post.

These serials are listed by John Andrade as "XGAM-71-CO; cancelled". The XGAM-71 is the "Buck Duck", and as I said, "cancelled" is apparently an error.
