Planet Models 1/32 scale Chance Vought Flying Pancake (Flying Flapjack) by Warren Zoell

From Wikipedia”
The Vought XF5U “Flying Flapjack” was an experimental U.S. Navy fighter aircraft designed by Charles H. Zimmerman during World War II. This unorthodox design consisted of a flat, somewhat disc-shaped body (hence its name) serving as the lifting surface. Two piston engines buried in the body drove propellers located on the leading edge at the wingtips.
