No, but probably I know where to find it, but it will take a couple of months at best.

The idea was to have a kind of a heli, that could be flown into theatre
as a fixed wing aircraft. AFAIK, changing from rotor to fixed wing while
in flight wasn't envisaged, so it wasn't a real VSTOl aircraft !
The picture from Aviation Week shows it as a heli.

And now, we'll wait for Father Christmas, the kids are already quite nervous .... ;D

A Merry Christmas to you all !

The STORC was (Fairchild-)Hiller's Model 1098.

The Fairchild Model 150 was not numbered in the M- series. It is from an older numbering system used by Fairchild and its Kreider-Reisner/American incarnations which included the "Pilgrim 95" (XC-31), "Pilgrim 100/-A/-B" (some to Y1C-24), "Fairchild 125" (KR-125) "Pilgrim 135" (KR-135), "Pilgrim 140" (X-140) and "Pilgrim 150" (Clark GA-43). The Clark GA-46 became the Fairchild Model 46 in the new system.

Greetings All -

To answer Hesham's question, the M-216 was a proposed carrier onboard delivery aircraft which appears to have been based on the C-123. There's an ad for it for sale on EPay:

I have a copy of the book American Secret Projects: US Airlifters 1941-1961, and there's a 3-view drawing of the M-219 design on page 124 of this book. The M-219 had a tail empennage resembling the Greek letter pi in front and rear view. The M-231 was derived from the C-123 but had the R-2800s replaced with four Allison T56 turboprops. The M-205 was a proposed C-123B version with four Wright R-3350 Duplex Cyclones while the M-206 had four Allison T56s.
