Default Best Looking Allied WWII Air to Air Fighter That NEVER Existed

A friend digitally created what Icall the CorStang - combination of Corsair and Mustang. (CorStang sounded better than MustAir LOL).







Not sure how it would have flown, but you gotta admit it's cool looking!

Thread Resurection!
Give the wingtips the stang tips and see what it looks like.
If you remove the belly radiator, and smooth out the fuselage, Ithink it would look even better. The wing roots have the radiator openings, so the belly one isnt needed.


So, who is up to building one and seeing if it can fly?

I think the W&B would be WAY off without the P&W R2800 up front. An RC version would probably need a LOT of nose weight.

LOL Nice!

Though I have seen something similar fly.

The X-Stang aka "Cobra"

I think the CG issues could be remedied, the belly scoop would be superfluous given the wing root leading edge intakes which would be more effective and efficient, also the empennage is way undersized and not in the best location for optimum effectivity given the intersection interruption to airflow at the wing root and at higher angles of attack that stab would be ineffective - it's a 3D model, someone stick it in a flow analysis and let's see?

Yes, the stabilisers are definitely way too small for such a large airframe. Speaking of the planes that never flew but look cool, I've always been partial to the designs of the game "Crimson Skies", although they're not entirely fictional as many of them were actually inspired by some late WW2 German designs. Sure, these were napkin designs more than actual projects, but still, there's a trace of them in history. I wonder whether anyone ever tried to do a R/C model of these planes...
