A air Superiority Fighter. Its been a WIP for a couple years, being constantly modified and whatnot (especially the wings and tail) and im still not 100% satisfied....but i've decided that its good enough to post now, but I'll probably update it in the future.
About this creation
My absolutely favorite picture of the Swoop that i have ever taken. Its just so Bad@$$ and menacing that it looks like its about to blow me out of the sky (ironically though it currently has no weapons except the cannon on the nose...)
The engines. Not too terribly exciting, but you can see the tailplane and the rear wheels.
Wheels out, and....
Wheels retracted. I went for simplicity and functionality rather than looks. Also note the small black cannon that i mentioned earlier.
yes, the cockpit opens. You can fit a minifig in there with some degree of difficulty, but he fits in there. Note the small minicanards. They wouldnt really serve a purpose, but i was inspired by similar minicanards on the B-1B lancer (look it up if u dont know what im talking about)
see ya later, suckers! The two massive Jet exhausts are one of my favorite features of this plane. Anyways, if i update this model more (which i no doubt will) i'll be sure to post the new pics. See ya guys!
I used to build fighters like this all the time, and I'm glad to see that somebody is still doing that theme. You came up with some ideas I never thought of, like those red engine intakes recessed in the sides. I've seen you use more advanced techniques than this, however. Cut down on the number of studs and try for more color coordination, and this has the potential to be awesome.
