Remember this JSF (Joint Strike F'ugly) contender?

Recommended Posts

Although many think the Lockheed X-35/F-35 won the fly-off because the Boeing alternative was just too egregious looking to be let loose on the world, I happened across this the other day.

 

Now while it may be true that a good artist could likely make the ugliest of Cinderella's sisters look good, I'd never imagined the same might be said of the X-32 or F-32 as it might have been.

 

Does it not have an element of the rakish, purposeful charm of the F-86 Sabre in this rendition, or should I get myself checked over for early onset of Alzheimer's?

Yup, get yourself checked. :)

 

There is nothing like the sleek purposeful lines of the Sabre in that abomination. It looks like something from the animated feature "Planes".

 

This is what I see:

But I also like the Wyvern and Barracuda, so what do I know?

What's interesting is it doesn't appear to have a 'lifting body' shape to the fuselage, where areodynamically the fuselage cross section is like a wing to help with lift in forward flight.

Eeek. it actually looks like an A-7 and an F-22's offspring.  :huh:

 

Always think that F-35B is the prettier daughter of the Yak-141

 

Would love an accurate new tool SLUF in 1/32
