Couldn't find an image where Boeing hadn't painted the name and number somewhere.

Funny thing, as a converted Kiwi, Oscar's supposed to know about CAC aircraft.

Me too. Turns out the Gloster was first, and was a bad design.


Quote:
The British "Zero"

The fact that the Zero was not a miraculous design is emphasized by the fact that in the late 1930s, the British designed and flew a fighter that was strikingly similar to the Zero.

The Zero look-alike was built by Gloster in response to the British Air Ministry requirement F.5/34, which also produced the Hawker Hurricane and the Supermarine Spitfire. Like the Zero, the Gloster F.5/34 contender was a low-wing all-metal monoplane with a radial engine. The engine was the nine-cylinder Mercury IX with 840 horsepower. The aircraft was armed with eight 7.7 millimeter guns.

Gloster put no great effort into the design, and in fact never even gave it a name besides the F.5/34 requirement code. One prototype flew in December 1937, with a second following in March 1938. Gloster then dropped out of the competition and filed their work away.

Speed of the Gloster F.5/34 at altitude was 508 KPH (316 MPH), which was comparable to that of early model Zeros, and the dimensions were remarkably close to that of the Zero, though the British aircraft was slightly heavier and had a shorter wingspan and a longer fuselage. Exactly how the F.5/34 compared in detail to the Zero would take a comparative evaluation that was never performed, and is now beyond useful speculation.

* Although the Gloster F.5/34 flew well before the first flight of the Zero, that does not imply that the Zero was a derivative of a British design. The Gloster aircraft was obscure and it is unlikely the Japanese knew much about it, and besides, the two machines were entirely different in detail.
