The canard attack bomber was Lockheed's Model 30.
The XFM-2 was Lockheed's Model 11.
The Excalibur was Lockheed's Model 44.

I do not know the Vega designators for these, unfortunately, but the only fighter design in Vega's list prior to 1940 appears as "V-116", so perhaps this is it.

I wasn't aware that there had been two distinct Lockheed designs with the name Excalibur... The one you featured at the top looks like a Constellation, while the one in your latest post resembles an enlarged Electra or a four-engine FM-2... From a design point of view, the latter pre-dates the former... and therefore seems a more likely candidate for the Model 44 designation. Another Lockheed mystery here...
