This display model was shown in aero August 1964. It's not really labelled but a short description is given on a Super Sabre with RR Spey engines. Such a proposed version is mentioned in The American Fighter by Angelucci & Bowers as F-100S.

So I want to ask if it's the F-100S in the picture.

In 1964 NAA proposed a newbuild F-100S SuperSabre fitted with a Rolls-Royce RB.168-25R Spey Turbofan (or optional Allison TF41).

Well, timing is correct. Hard to tell with a small model though.

My dear boxkite,

the NA F-100S was based on F-100F airframe with a Rolls-Royce
engine,so the model is not clear.

Is 'engines' a typo? The F-100 pictured appears to be a single engined a/c.

Yes, a typo. J57 & Spey must be reasonably close in size, several J57 engined aircraft were proposed with Spey.
