Straight from the Hollywood movie "6th Day" comes the Whispercraft, a fictional helicopter designed by Ron Cobb. Using a photograph of the original "prototype" (a non-flying full-scale mockup) devoid of any markings, I created a "real-life" variant, the Sikorsky S-114 Whisperhawk.

This unique design will be procured by the U.S. Navy in late 2017, and be used mainly for ASW missions and rescue missions, respectively as the SH-82A and HH-82A. An Army variant designated AH-82B is also in the plans.

In 1984, Bell Helicopter received a contract for a pilotless version of the Cobra helicopter for the Marines. Designated Model 459, it was developed from the Model 449 Cobra II prototype and therefore kept the four-blade main rotor; the ****pit was reduced to an enclosed pod containing the automatic pilot, flight computer and electronic devices. A batch of 25 machines designated QH-1Q Marine Cobra was put in production, entering service in August 1988.

NOTE: That's an imaginary type, of course, not a real model!

Nice! This would surely be a good idea for a UAV system.

Submitted at the same time as the Sikorsky S-69 ABC (Advanced Blade Concept) was the Bell Model 560 prototype. It was built using the third, unused XV-15 fuselage and fitted with two co-axial rotors, which was quite unusual for Bell. Just as unusual was the unique triple fin in a Y-shaped configuration.

The Bell 560's rotors used two advanced rotors that previously belonged to the unfortunate YAH-63 attack prototypes, but Sikorsky's technology was much more advanced and won it a contract as the YH-59A. Undeterred, Bell offered the model for export, and 50 were ordered by the Japanese Navy, with deliveries commencing in 1983.

Not my best work I guess, but an idea I wanted to try... Introducing the Sikorsky YH-76A Floathawk, an SH-60B Seahawk with brand new aft section and floats.

Any comments and constructive criticism are much welcome!

I think its a good work! Well I'll be honest in saying the edited sections are somewhat more noticeable, but I can easily dismiss that. I'd like to see a float-equipped Sea Hawk!

Yeah, that's what I meant about this not being my best work... By the way, I've just slightly edited the file since I'd forgotten to do something.

The Grumman OV-1H Mohawk II was the next logical step in the evolution of the reliable and flexible G-134 design. Featuring widened and shortened wings, it became the first operational tilt-rotor in the U.S. inventory when the Army took delivery of the first aircraft in June 1986. The G-134TR Mohawk II proved a valuable asset in difficult missions over Panama and Nicaragua, where the hostile environment made landing impossible to the original version. The Mohawk II was used for observation (OV-1H), as a rescue aircraft (HV-1H) and as an armed counter-insurgencency type (AV-1H). On top of the 110 new examples built by Grumman, most Mohawks remaining in the inventory were overhauled and brought up to "II" standard, bringing the total in operation up to 250. These versions, although externally similar to the new frames, presented a number of technical differences and were therefore designated with the use of the "J" suffix letter instead (OV-1J, HV-1J). There were no AV-1J conversions, as all 60 COIN aircraft were new from the factory. Finally, a small utility transport with deepened fuselage was produced in 12 examples (UV-1K). The last Mohawk II was retired from service in May 2003, making the G-134 family one of the most enduring designs in U.S. service.

Using the three-view drawing of the Boeing Model 401 helicopter project, I created this color profile. Of course the name and designation are invented... Hope you like it!

For some reason it seems I never posted my Bell 828 project here, so here goes...

Stargazer2006 I find your pictures very appealing and realistic. You are talented with photograph manipulations and I hope to see more works. I especially like the designations and stories behind each aircraft as it greatly helps the imagination.

Thank you very much kabomber! I have collected all my imaginary aircraft until 2010 in a special web page: http://aviadesign.online.fr/main.htm.

Please let me know if you liked them, okay? wink.gif

That is quite an immense collection! I have gone about half way through your gallery and I am very impressed. I will look over the rest of your gallery tommorow as it is quite late.

I'd say about 300 separate types and variants.

I have finished browsing and I am even more impressed. However I notice a mistake with the Mi-6 United States variants as you repeatedly incorrectly name it Mi-8. That aside I thoroughly enjoy your works. Please continue.
