The 5th image there, the model kit, is not mine. I don't think a kit was ever issued at any rate; that's likely a home-grown kitbash someone did there.
I believe among the reasons they passed on this bird was that it couldn't carry the AIM-54 (I don't know if it was structural, electronic, or both), and also the issue of trading in a known quantity for something more revolutionary.
Anyway, enjoy the photographs all.
