What I can't figure out, planeman, is why these "model aircraft" cost so many millions of dollars.... something just doesn't add up here at all.

Ok something like Global Hawk, sure, but people are out there building quite sophisticated homebuilt type aircraft for much, much less than the initial design study costs of these things.

waynos,

That Helicopter is YUH-61A(BV-179) which rival with UH-60

planeman, emile already got the Potez, he said 842 but the basic type is just the 840, I wasn't holding out for the sub type. It acutally says the name on the fin, which I missed earlier.

yes emile, Boeing 179/YUH-61.

Just 1 and 5 remaining, five is quite hard but I should think 1 would be identified when wombat turns up.

ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

Sorry, was just doing what Wombats do best!

No.1 is the Armstrong Whitworth AW.55 Apollo

No.5 - Sorry don't know, but part of me says a Dassault design study, while another part says English Electric / BAC

I was looking at smaller scale Dassault Mercure too, and at the BAC designs - that pointy nose. But the cockpit windows are not very BAC-111ish. And the engines appear post 1960s.... I give up too easily.

OK I'll call time on that one, don't you think it has a bit of the look of a smaller 737 too? Actually it is the Hawker Siddely HS 136 of 1965, came very close to being built but in the wake of mass military and civil cancellations and the rise in importance of the Airbus project, in which Hawker Siddely was a partner and who's HBN100 design was chosen as the basis for the A300, they decided to scrap it.

EDIT: bonus mystry aircraft:

A pre-prototype concept relating to which now-in-production fighter aircraft?

1 Caproni Ca 313

2 ??

3 SAAB B18

4 Groen Gyroplane (ex- Cessna Skymaster)

5 PZL Turbo Orlik

6 ENAER Pillan

Bonus - It looks familiar but I can't get anywhere from the books I've looked at, another reveal to anticipate, along with no 2which looks like a Koolhoven fighter but I can't say for sure.

Hmm...

The double delta of the Saab Drache (is that Dragon?), the "high" fuselage and cockpit of the Fighting Falcon (and possible the wing of the XL), the twin tails of the Eagle and Hornet...and in a way I guess you could say it's got the low-slung engine (s) of the Falcon as well. But the fuselage and cockpit look very F16-like...

So even although I have no idea, I'm going to take a stab in the dark with...F16 Fighting Falcon

Guhhh, how did that happen?

It's not the Fighting falcon but that answer is close. You have spoted some vital clues that point at the designers and thus the project.

The ones you answered you got correct. Re #2. Nothing Koolhoven related as far as I'm aware. This type did see service throughout much of WW2.

No 2 FFVS J22

The last one would have to be a study on the way to the SAAB JAS39 Gripen
