Glad being able to share here again!

 

Love the C7N1! But I thought it was an Italian S.M. 79 1/2 with too many vertical tails.

Probably for the reason because it is one...

 

 

We SHOULD have had this one ...

But we didn't.

Well, Consolidated had the Coronado. Without knowing it, but contrary to Mitsubishi where I am not sure if they had a G3XM on their drawing board, I am pretty sure that Consolidated worked on a pre-Tradewind during WWII. With six piston engines, it probably would have outrun the BV 238...

Objection, gentlemen! The task is to create a fully serviceable seaplane fighter that is able to take on land-based ones, and I see no other solution than my flying hydroplane concept! See https://www.warbirds...bad-boys-today/

You may criticise me for the effort trying to create sea-based versions of Bf 109/110 with their limited capacities, also for overextending the number of types to be used. But remember my nick, romanticism often beats reality...
