About this creation
The F-45 is a semi-stealth, long range multirole aircraft used by the Australians to engage and destroy enemy ships and armored vehicles. Based loosely on the concept of the F-18, it can also be used for EMP assaults and air support missions. It is surprisingly maneuverable for it's shape, mostly thanks to thrust vectoring which I couldn't display.

The F-45's namesake is the Redback spider, a poisonous spider exceptionally good at killing victims with venom, like this jet.



Head on shot displaying, among other things; two AIM-9X short-range air to air missiles, two AGM-88E air to surface missiles, one Paveway IV "smart bomb" and, my favorite, one kick-butt GAU-12 Equalizer cannon with 800 rounds that will make any commander do a facepalm.



Slightly angled view, looks awesome without my arm.



Top view with tails clearly visible



The Pratt and Whitney F135 engine which develops 43,000 pounds of thrust



Cockpit with pilot in a Helmet-Mounted Display System.

My only pet peeve with this guy is that it needs to have a better color scheme. Currently it has the scheme of the 185th White Shark squadron. Other than that I am very proud of it.

besides the color scheme, I like it! The only real problem I can see is that the engine, like Jack stated, has no intakes. You should make the bottom portion, the area under the wings, wider. That would greatly improve realism. ~T

True, but after I built it, like 5 months ago, I dismantled it since i need some of the pieces for my YF-23 Black Widow

Very good! The top view is awesome! I love the sleek lines and the original feel to the tail section. I would up the bullet capacity to about 1,000 if you intend this to be a kick a-- gun platform. (The A-10 has 1,174 rounds.) I don't really like the colors, but I understand that not everybody has the right pieces. I think larger engine intakes would look better and make the airplane look more menacing.
