I discover today the "idea" for a single seat Phantom projected inside the IFX fighter contest. Is there around a sketch for this project?

No it doesn't. IFX in this context is International Fighter, Experimental, which was win by the Northrop F-5E.

italian_o, the F-4 Phantom II proposal for the IFX was in essence what the F-4F Phantom II for the Luftwaffe became - it still had the same two-crew cockpit/canopy arrangement, but would have had the second crew members eliminated, would have been limited to Aim-9 Sidewinder's (no capabilities for Aim-7 Sparrow's) and would have had a limited offensive weapons capability, form what I understand.

Sorry italian_o, but wasn't the compation run under the prefix of International Fighter Aircraft (IFA)?
