I found this photo on Facebook. No idea of the source.

Anyone want to try to model it? Looks like it would be fun!

It looks like a standard tailsitter, but it also looks like it has oxygen intakes above the... wings? So maybe it is also atmospheric?

No cockpit or windows, so it's either a drone or they run it on instruments like a submarine. I wish I could find some more images of it...



Oh wait, found another image. It shows people next to it so it's not a drone.



Artist's name is Paul-Lloyd. He has an interesting collection of spaceship art on DeviantArt. Lots of fun stuff to get the modelers drooling.

Reminds me of the tail sitter VTOL test aircraft the AF and Navy had like the Lockheed XFV-1 and Convair XFY-1 Pogo.
