Evidence in the incomplete list posted by Mark in this thread suggests that the Model 220 should not be the later proposal for the Model 119 Transport, but rather the larger commercial transport illustrated in an exhibited wood model as the T-85A.

The list you've just quoted was not by Mark, but by yours truly, and it was a very, very incomplete one!

Since then we've had access to a complete list of Models 1 to 211!
Types that I know of after that are 220-228, 250-270, 276, 278, 279, 287, 293 and 296.
Then there's a huge gap up to Models 375 and 410, which were respectively the planned production X-32 and the Sensorcraft.

Attached is an excerpt with the model numbers for the XF2H-2 etc. from Mark's list provided earlier in this thread as a pdf file. Note that the XF2H-5 wasn't provided with a model designation. This is consistent with the fact that, on the McDonnell documents I have, the model is identified as "XF2H-5", not the expected two-digit number with a letter suffix. I find it odd that the XF2H-5 was given a prefix in the McDonnell drawing manual; that suggests that engineering drawings were released, or at least expected to be released, that were unique to the swept-wing variant.

I know it was your list in the message that I quoted, but I was pointing out that in the printed copy I worked from at the museum - of the PDF that Mark posted - suggests that that DC-9 like airliner design had the model 220 designation at one time. The date of that designation was 1960 (if I remember it right).

The list of McDonnell Aircraft/McDonnell Douglas model/project numbers was posted by Mark in this topic before.
But this copy posted by Ron Downey at his blog looks different. ??? Earlier version, or just printed out in a different way with a matrix printer?

McDonnell Aircraft Project Numbers
A list of all the McDonnell Aircraft/McDonnell Douglas model/project numbers from # 1 to #278 with a brief explanation. A 174 page document dated 1 July 1974. A goldmine of info from the Gerald Balzer collection via the Greater St. Louis Air and Space Museum.
