Seen this on Myasianart's shop page.

They have some nice own made models, but this is not
a Grumman 698. The closest I can find is a Rolls
Royce concept drawing from 1980 in the Flight Archive.
Is it a Mcdonnell Douglas?

Since this is no Grumman 698, perhaps you should remove and replace the picture with a properly labeled version to avoid confusion. Indeed, someone could be mistaken by Googling "Grumman 698" and arriving at your picture...

Here is what the Grumman 698 should look like:

It looks more like some of the Northrop or Vought studies of the early-1980s time period. Perhaps some of the twin-fan concepts worked on in conjunction with RR?
 
It reminds me of this McDonnell/BAe design, as shown in the US VSTOL thread.
