For some reason it is one of my favorites, will be more mods soon.
About this creation
Version II of the redtail racer.
I decided to rebuild the RedTail since I was somewhat dissatisfied with the look of the initial version. To the casual observer there may appear to be little differece between verions I and II but beleave me it is essentially and whole new plane. The internal structure of the wing was redesigned, the vented rear of the wing was filled in giving a more solid/chunckly look, and the engines were repleced (although I am still not happy with the engines).
Even though I have heard some opinions that this is not one of my best creations, nevertheless it is one of my favorites (dont know why). I plan on rebuilding it again, I have some ideas on how to improve the engines and the shape of the wing.

Version III coming soon.

Oh boy...

   This picture doesnt really offer much detail but I like it -- giving a good scale comp. with the X-Wing

The people who say that this ISN'T one of your best creations are insanely pessimistic and think that for a creation to be good AT ALL, it has to be PERFECT.

Gotta love this one! The sleek yet compact shape works great with the colour scheme. Reminds me of a Reno Racing Plane, a bit. With jets.

I like a lot! I thing that simplicity is the key in some models, wich is the case on this one. Its like a Naboo StarFighter from StarWars but in a race mod version. Very cool!

It's a beautiful looking ship. A little more detail in the description would be nice, though.
