I guess you're all familiar with the Supermarine Swift. But how would it look if Supermarine developed the Project 535 into a proper supersonic interceptor as the Swift was initially intended to be? Maybe like this? The Supermarine Stiletto F1.

This is actually an ancient Revell box series model of a F-102A (1/96-ish) I bought in a bulk of leftover models. Cleaned it up, got all paint off by using Natrium hydroxide and transplanted the cockpit, exhaust, Wings (& undercarriage), vertical and horizontal tail from the new Airfix Swift FR.5.

Enjoy the photos.
