I've stumbled across a reference dated 10 September 1943 to a "Martin Model 207-2A" but I haven't been able to find out what that might be. Does anyone have any information?

OK, thanks! That put me on the track. I found sketches and descriptions in Buttler & Griffith's "American Secret Projects" and they weren't at all what I expected. Twin engines, yes, but a nose-mounted contra-rotating prop that makes it look like an oversize single-engine aircraft. And those 2 engines were V-3420s, so really more like 4xV-1710s. Wow!
