That was a good one Kiwi - took me a couple hours to find it.  I saw the four-bladed props and cowls and went off looking for late and post-WWII British bombers.  The bubble up front eventually got me headed in the right direction.

Try this one (then and now pictures):

Kiwi, you are absolutely correct!  Build it from the plans that PB guy pointed out, and shake up the folks at the next funfly.  Chances are, they won't know what it is.  What have you got for us?

How about a Republic XP 47H powered by a 2300 hp Chrysler XIV-2220-1 16 cylinder inverted V liquid cooled engine?

If you cover the rest of the plane with your hand, the nose looks like a great white shark, but that doesn't help you identify the plane.  Looking for aircraft designation, and powerplant brand and designation. Grin

In fact, if you cover the powerplant with your hand, the identity of the airplane is much easier to guess.

One of the interesting things about it is the powerplant. Cool
