G-214 was Grumman's design for what became the Mercury spacecraft.

No. G-327 is (was) a missile study.

The Advanced Design Composite Aircraft (ADCA) study from 1975-1976 includes a reference to a ASL-D 952-105B supersonic penetration interdiction fighter. Several references to a Grumman ADCA configuration 105B are included in same attached doc link. Im not familiar with Grumman designation system and perhaps more scholarly forum folk might be able to confirm or deny. I'm ASSUMING, and I make this clear - "ASSUMING" a Grumman designation of 925-105B but this doesn't seem right to me. I apologize if this Grumman design has already been mentioned and is not missing from the forum produced list.

see page 72 of this PDF. Other references are made to this ADCA design in the doc below.

I suppose I should have asked if any member know what the ASD-L naming system is because it frequently was used by Grumman. My understanding is that it covered purely conceptual designs that went no further.
Thanks

My impression (by no means certain) is that these refer to wind tunnels, test "campaigns" and datasets.

As far as is known, Grumman project numbers had not reached 800, even by 1988.

Here is Grumman Design 123. Note the designation on the belly and the word "Obsolete". It is one of the wonderful in-house wood models, and as you can see has a 1950's style lucite cockpit. It's now happily sitting on my shelf. IMG_5344.jpgIMG_5345.jpg

Pardon the quick picts but I know you will love these 1/48 scale wood in-house models now happily residing in my collection. First up is a dual tail turboprop S2 that I like a lot. Project 165 - A (T-58).

Next up is one that I had had previously and thankfully have once again. It is my fave (just a bit over even the Lockheed Cheyenne) and I was loath to let it go many years ago when I sold a bulk of my collection. At long last, I now have another one that came in the original wood shipping box. I know of 2 others (the one that I had sold). Very sure they are really not too common. Grumman/Kaman Design 376

Thank you. Very interesting and congrats for an excellent collection. I would have thought that Design-215 was the twin-T58-powered development of the S-2, and Design-165 the T53-powered one (with E-1 tail surfaces and longer fuselage). Any chance that the pedestal could have been swapped?

Could be..... they were in a box with no information.... so you are sure they are swapped?

OK Pundits, here is a goodie for you all..... It's an E2 X and dang if there is not a lot of information out there. Gone is the dome as the array is conformal and on the belly, and GE TF-34 engines are used. Note the exhaust, looks decidedly different. I have not had much luck in finding any information or illustrations. I'm probably going to keep it as is instead of painting (for the moment) unless someone has an interesting paint layout.
