Yes ! ;D

But it could be interesting to know the original concept ;) :

Maybe Cheranovskii :

or Kalinin :

To a degree, that looks like either the Gloster or MB delta-winged fighter designs from just after WW II mixed with the inlets of some of the Horton Bros. supersonic designes.

Just my $0.02

Well, after doing a bit more review, I'd call it a blend of the Horton HO XIIIb (http://www.luft46.com/horten/ho13b.html) and either that MB design or the comparable Gloster design.

Maybe :)

For my part, i think now that the Delta-7 is a mixing between the Horten XIIIb (finshape and cockpit) with the Lippisch DM1 (wing). Maybe Kuat systems engineerings will give an answer in the future ;)
