OOAK Original Design Patent Bell Aircraft Corporation WW2 XP-52 Fighter Plane
The original design patent issued to Bell Aircraft Corporation, R. Woods, for the prototype twin boom XP-52 pusher type fighter aircraft. Submitted on April 7th, 1941 and issued on July 21st, 1942. Includes the original “assignment” paper from Mr. Woods to the Bell Aircraft Corporation. The dates are different on the wiki so there appears to be some conflict here, but this might be. The Model 19 mentioned below (or the wiki is just wrong on the dates). The Bell XP-52 and subsequent XP-59 were World War II fighter aircraft design projects by the American Bell Aircraft Corporation. Both projects featured a twin-boom layout with a rear-mounted engine driving pusher contra-rotating propellers. When the XP-59 project was cancelled the designation XP-59A was used as a cover for a secret jet fighter prototype, which would enter production as the P-59 Airacomet. The XP-52 design was begun by the Bell Company in 1940, separate from the R-40C competition, under the Air Material Command designator MX-3. The short fuselage carried a piston engine in the rear, driving a pair of contra-rotating propellers in a pusher configuration. The wings were swept back at an angle of 20 degrees, with a horizontal stabilizer mounted behind the propeller on twin booms running back from the wings. The fuselage was unusually streamlined, being round and barrel-shaped, with the forward-located pilot’s cockpit fully faired-in to its lines and the nose ending in a round air intake which was ducted back internally to the engine. The undercarriage was a tricycle arrangement, with the main wheels retracting into the tailbooms. Propulsion was to be provided by the experimental Continental XIV-1430-3 inverted V-12 engine. The XP-52 was cancelled in October 1940 because the XIV-1430 engine ran into technical difficulties. Bell submitted a similar design to the US Navy as the Model 19, but this too was never built. Measures approximately 12 by 8. This item is in the category “Collectibles\Transportation\Aviation\Military Aircraft\Other Military Aircraft Items”. The seller is “laz-e-bid” and is located in this country: US. This item can be shipped worldwide.
