My 3 cents.
Garlicdesign (MCE B5M Griofa) - fantastic looking entry (in typical GD's style) and indeed the only serious 'negatives' are those mentioned by Timothy, regarding the air ducts and undercarriage bays - I guess (not being an engineer) that with proper (possibly adjustable) shape of the air ducts the issue of airflow could be minimized, but the plain view of the compressor fans means that the ducts are just straight pipes, which, in turn raises a question of the undercarriage. (to be honest, when I saw the drawing for the first time, I thought the 'duct problem', but 'gear bay problem' completely escaped my attention, possibly because I was overwhelmed by general awesomeness of this entry).
Charguizard (Nakajima G14N Shirozan) - another fabulous looking design (with lots of fabulous variants and paint schemes), from one of new, rapidly rising stars of our community (Char, any chance to see Your works more often in the non-AU FD department?
). More compact than other designs, doesn't seem to have any obvious serious flaws. Only thing I'd object to - and rather on esthetical grounds, rather than technical is the relative width and "flatness" of the central fuselage, with so wide intakes spaced so widely relative to fairly narrow-looking engines, and main undercarriage seemingly "far to the rear" (again, purely subjective, esthetical impression). Thumbs up!
The_Sprinklez (General Dynamics AMSA Config. 2906) - a real-world design, so gets 100% in the plausibily area by default. In regards to style and quality - it's solid entry, drawing-wise, though as Timothy remarked, there is a room for fine-tuning.
(on a side note, one thing I'd remark about is shading on top-view - with 'bright' sides and 'medium shade' top-view - if it were to be a view of a plane in horizontal flight seen from top, then the top parts would have 'bright shade' and sides were 'medium'
Anyway, keep up the good work. I hope to see it in the "real" Never-were thread.
Armoured man (Fujimoto E55 Yokai) - clearly inspired by Avro Vulcan. Unfortunately, while the Vulcan also had "flat" bottom contour of fuselage and "curved" top one, the proportions were very different and the E55 looks rather awkward. Also, there are, IMHO, lots of things that could be fine-tuned - cockpit windows look quite bad, also the undercarriage looks 'heavy' and underdetailed (and I'm wondering where the main gear is retracted - really would love to see the bottom view
) and panel lines on wings on top view don't seem to have much sense.
(on a side note - that KE25 clone of Halifax probably wouldn't be capable to take enough fuel to make it a big difference; Charguizard's entry has bit similar problem, but he's got smaller bomber)
Hood (Hawker Siddeley HS.1110 SSR.2 Vanquish B.Mk.1/B.Mk.1A) - I won't hide it: that's the entry that got my vote. As always with Hood's works, the drawing is excellent in execution and style. Regarding the design itself, it's a loose variation on a theme of Hawker-Siddeley HS.1011 - initially designed as supersonic passenger jet and as rapid-response ASW aircraft. Hood made it smaller and with more conventional location of engines (HS.1011 had two under the wing roots and two at the tail) - and also perfectly captured the "very own, unimitable style" of British avant-garde designs of the era. One could only wish it was armed with some more fancy nukes (though the nuclear-armed Martel was indeed considered in 1960s). 10/10/10 in all categories.
TigerHunter1945 (Sosrobirowo Strategic Weapon System) - drawings are nicely executed (there are few details I personally don't "like" but nothing really serious, nor even "breaking the rules", just my individual preferences) and the design is certainly "out of the box" idea, an interesting to create a mega(ton)-Mistel. Wiweko B-54 Gelatik seems to be clearly inspired with Canberra, at least when the front half of the fuselage is concerned. The wings seem to have rather small chord, especially relative to their thickness and the horizontal stabilizer looks like attached from completely different airplane (plus the top view could definitely use more panel lines - and make them bit more pronounced), but the overall idea looks nice. The Nurtanio R12N Wisanggeni missile looks great (again, panel lines on top view, though...) but... I have one serious problem with whole arrangement - I definitely wouldn't want to be a pilot that would have to perform a landing of this whole combo because the main undercarriage looks extremely narrow, especially for a vehicle with so high centre of gravity. I also wonder where these four wheels fit, relative to air duct (or even the engine itself).
VictorCharlie (Sud-Aviation Nuage) - well, fittingly with text description, it's a very
1950s design. Overall arrangement looks fine, even if rather slightly strange (I assume that the tail has 3 vertical stabilizers/rudders in the 1930s style?), though the shape of engine nacelles - esp. their rear part - is somewhat puzzling. It seems that there's something very wrong with profile of wings and horizontal stabilizer (they look more like superellipses instead of 'proper' teardrop shape). Also the tail turret seems to have its "top" higher than the rest of the fuselage forward of it, the undercarriage begs for more detailing and fuselage and wings for more panel lines and tiny details (antennas, equipment hatches etc.)
Gollevainen (Khabarovsk B-7) - that's another adaptation of the "real-world never-were", namely the Chinese Xian H-7 (or H-8I depending on sources - in Andreas Rupprecht's 'Dragon's Wings. Chinese fighter and bomber aircraft aircraft development it's H-7, but in Yefim Gordon and Dmitriy Kommisarov's 'Chinese aircraft. China aviation industry since 1951' it's H-8I) design of 1970 but with an upgrade. Original H-7/8 was a H-6 (Tu-16) with four (later version even with six) engines in underwing nacelles (B707-style). Gollevainen's design, however, uses the most modern (currently in production) H-6K version as a base, with heavily redesigned nose section and deleted tail turret. As such, like The_Sprinklez's AMSA, it's overall plausibility can be basically taken for granted (regarding the engine issues raised by Timothy - it could turn out to be a lemon, but would work, more or less
). On the 'visual' side, I miss the practical lack of window color and I'd say that wheels look rather huge
Muscatatuck (Martin P5M Orca) - P6M SeaMaster derivative (unfortunately the P5M designation was already used before
) so plausible in principle, though the actual P6M had engines blowing slightly downwards and here they are completely horizontal (which, I believe, would have certain meaning in practice). Drawing is fairly solid but bit unspectacular and begs for more detailing, panel lines etc. My biggest problem is perhaps the front view, namely the egg-ish shape (cross-section) of the fuselage (particularly in the bottom part).
