I agree - that's an unusual take on the Concorde.

There are several of them around at museums; I've got pictures of the one
at the Boeing Museum of Flight in Seattle.

I do have to take exception to one thing, though - the Concorde isn't large.
In fact if you take a look inside one the overwhelming impression is just
how tiny this thing is.  If you want large, try the Airbus A380.  I got to
see one of these at Heathrow when I was flying back to San Francisco, both
at the terminal as I made my way to my gate, and taking off (about an hour
before my flight was due to depart).
