    Looks a lot more like the MiG than the F86. I guess the miG can trace it’s lineage to Rolls Royce (for giving them the engine) and Kurt Tank?

    Bill, you beat me to the punch re the Mig 15 bit–especially as the 86 used an axial-flow engine allowing for the slimmer fuselage.. BTW, Spill, FWIW a great source of advanced Nazi German projects/designs is the website Luft ’46.
