Note the model has a "windowed" section of the fuselage bottom to show the internal carriage of the missiles.
Enjoy the Day! Mark
Very interesting and great find Mark
A few years ago, I contacted the Vought Archives, and was dealing with a very interesting chap there (via e-mail). He (unfortunately and with much regret I can not remember his name!!!) was a retired Vought employee, who had done a little research into Vought/LTV's design responses to USAF/USN Request for Proposals (RfP).
In the case of the ‘TFX’ program, he stated that Vought had not participated!
So again thanks for your research Mark
I am very envious of your ability to be able to be at and be going through the Vought Archives :'(
