Hallo friends.

I have found third the participant ---Bellanca Model 33-220

I search the fourth competitor.

If it is possible help.
 
did Curtiss twin-engine P-40 involve in the competition ?.
 
Hi,

I searched for this competition and I suggest the forth was Martin-207
twin engined escort fighter project.
 
Hi,

Was that a Bellanca 33-220 fighter ?!,please see;

Hi,


only my suggesting,may be that aircraft submitted to this competition,if it
was real design, (no evidence about that,just speculation).

I'm afraid ,this illustration is nothing
more than a free interpretation of early G-1 info...
(see the typical glazed tailcone)
 
The picture presented on 5 March is an artist fantasy of the Fokker G-1. On 26 February 2014, in the discussion on the G-1 (Dutch bombers etc.), I mentioned that there is no evidence that the US Army ever considered the G-1. Presenting this picture as a potential contender for the CP39-775 competition is confusing.The matter concerning CP39-775 is already complex enough and does not need unfounded speculation like this.
