I found some Swedish wartime projects that seem to be inspired in the Spitfire, the Mustang and the Messerschmitt Bf 110

ISTR reading somewhere that this one is based on the Fairey Firefly.

:eek: DANG! Such a shame they didn't build it!
Well we built the J-29 instead which was at the time one of if not the best jet fighter in the world in 1948. It out turned
both the mig and the sabre while being just as fast. It even held the speed record in the early 50's. It was later beaten by a sabre which crashed when breaking the record.

Dear friends,

That paint sheme is a bit unrealistic as the second prototype would never be allowed to have personalized markings such as a shark mouth. The nosecone would be black considering the era.

There is an explanation of the L 27 painting as it's shown when hypothetical evaluated in 1946 by a concrete aviation unit, just the F8 Wing of the Flygvapen.
