Initial thoughts went A-10 > Pucara (then noted a high wing?) > Bronco.
Now going with Convair Charger. :)

Noyade has it with the Convair Model 58 Charger, an unsuccessful bidder for the COIN contract won by the Bronco.

Carrier aircraft?

I was going to suggest Westland Wyvern with second prop artfully hidden but not sure, tail plane looks too high set for starters.

First thoughts were Martin Mauler,but closer inspection would be the Kaiser-Fleetwings XTBK-1.....Of which there is not a lot of complimentary information..

OH ...again ,if correct....

Open house to long:

and yes, this time I have made sure that I know the type myself!

treadigraph 21st Jun 2021 20:06

I seem to remember that beasty at the PFA Cranfield several times. Or one very like it!

I believe that post-modern Flea is the Croses EC-6 Criquet. He also designed the EC-9 Para-Cargo Croses Para-Cargo
At which point I hope someone thought the joke had gone far enough.

If I'm right, Open House in the fullness of time.

Slight thread drift. Why does the JJ-1 have its inlets so far forward?

Asturias56 25th Jun 2021 07:54

well in the '50's they'd just got over putting a hole in the nose so this was an improvement I guess.............

Noyade 25th Jun 2021 08:14

Cheers Beamr. I was very lucky with that one. No idea why the intakes are so far forward or why the vertical fin seems so incredibly tall.
Initially I thought it may have been the Fiat G.80.

The tail of the JJ-1 seems to be inspired by the Fokker S-14, looking at the way the horizontal stabilizer is mounted. Did they just copy the size as well?

treadigraph 25th Jun 2021 10:02

Fin reminds me of the Nangchang variation on a Yak 18 theme...

Shackman 25th Jun 2021 14:19

Looks very much like 'Britain First' (aka Bristol type 142, which became the Blenheim). Withdraw that, the undercarriage looks wrong
