F-2A Buffalo Model Aircraft

One reason we can't agree on what the Hornet would is we're trying to make it fit a system no longer in use. However, if the system were still in use, it wouldn't be that bad.

Ya know, I do find it extremely strange that if I Google XF-32 & or XF-35, I come up empty handed regarding a/c. OTOH, if I Google either X-32 or X-35 or F-32 or F35, I find both a/c. You sure about your designations?

Maybe it's the difference between what the engineers refered to them as and what was released to the media...similar sort of circumstance with the AAS-38B FLIR - LORAL wanted to call it "Nighthawk", but that name was already taken by the F-117...though I don't think that was common knowledge at the time. So the "officially", the "Nighthawk" name was never given to the pod...however, I have several "Nighthawk FLIR" patches in my patch collection...

I was working at Boeing at the time and the only common name I heard for the Boeing Entry was "JSF" - Joint Strike Fighter - which was of course the name for the DOD Program.

Actually, no. A FM Corsair would have been F@M. "G" stood for Goodyear.

I was at McDonnell...our submission against the original RFP was rejected and never got off paper, and then we were bought out and put back in the race...only to lose again...

Which would have been another GM-built fighter following on to the FM Wildcat. Goodyear built FG-1 Corsairs and F2G Corsairs, the F2G being the models with the big engine and the bubble canopy. Brewster was so screwed-up by this time that they produced only F3As. Aside from mismanagement, Brewster was saddled with an old multi-storey factory building that used elevators to move partially-built airfames up and down for finishing. What worked for limited production custom car bodies didn't fit into aircraft production.
