This appears to be a conventionally fueled version, though most of the designs for the Model 23 I've seen were nuclear powered.

Here you go -- sorry for the delay in responding. This is the nuclear-powered Convair 23A. The 23B was a considerably larger aircraft, with two pairs of GE X211 direct cycle engines, instead of just one pair, as seen here.

What a sleek design... Neat! Did 23B retain the same general lines, despite the enlargement?

Did you refer to the 15 minutes gap between your posts or is it something else? :eek: I waited for some responses (not related with you) months, so this makes me smile :)

I was referring to the 15 minutes. Just being silly.
