Bee Gee Racer Fighter

A while back I saw a website with a GEE BEE Racer reconfigured as a fighter plane.

Of course the cape had to go, so I cut it off.

It looks a bit like the I-15, a short, stubby Russian plane from the early WWII era.

Here are a group of Airfix USAAF men working on the plane.

The Gee Bee was short range, but very fast and very maneuverable.  

I think it would work very well for a point defense fighter.

No armor as a racer, but perhaps a bit as a fighter.

You can see the size, the engine is massive.
