Thanks Micheal and I fully agree with, next drawings will be focused about the late version (1956).

A fabulous illustration of a very exciting design. Big thanks, Archipeppe.

Now that a certain forum member has admitted to totally making up the "Thunderwarrior" name for one of his books, could we possibly get rid of it in such documents and topics? It participates in spreading false data over the web, which really doesn't need us to do that already!

I'm little bit confused, who do you are referring?


Anyway the data source I used for my drawings is known for years. so I'm pretty sure that my job is faithful (at least to the Engineering Mock-up photos of mid 50's)....


What kind of false data were spread out?

I have to cancel the "Thunderxxxx" even from my drawings?


If so I need of some time to do that, in any case the next round (late 1956 version) will have only the "XF-103" label...

Here we go, second round.


First of all I've cleared the embarassing "Thunderwarrior" name from my XF-103 Early version drawing, and I enclose them now.
Furthermore I've also elaborated the drawing set for the XF-103 late version, and they are also enclosed.


Enjoy them... ;)

I've made a small mistake: in the image Republic XF-103 Late_02.jpg[font=verdana, sans-serif][/size] the caption is obviously wrong since it is not the "early" rather than the "late" XF-103 version.[/font]

Sorry...[/font]
