Seen it before but it makes no sense to me with the impracticality of the layout. As a fighter pilot you have to see the enemy, this has blind spots all over the place.

The artwork shown distorts the design. The perspective is off and the intake is not drawn accurately.

I think the artwork is based on one of the 'dodgy designs' from Luftfahrt International No. 18 of Nov/Dez 1976. The magazine features a handful of drawings showing designs attributed to Messerschmitt, but which appear to have been inaccurately recreated from memory at a later date. The drawings posted by Justo are what the P 1106 really looked like. And there are further variations beyond those, but none of them look particularly like the Luftfahrt drawing.
