Pacific Union IF-4 Cormorant . Sit down at my table, put your mind at ease... . Good morning, afternoon, or evening viewer. Today is a very special day for most. But not for me. No candy, no decorations, no costumes. Forever at home. Oh well, instead of me going off in the dark of the night, you get to look at this, which is almost as good as candy.
This here is the IF-4 Cormorant, a major step up from the IF-3 (See the Arsenal of Tyranny). It's much more stealth, and looks better, at least to me. Some people will not be happy. I think I'm going to stay with SNOT wings from now on. I have few wing plates, and less skill with them. Besides, this kind of plane is boring. I'm a flying wing man, have been from the start. I'd guess this thing carries at least six air-to-air missiles, and has a 25mm rotary cannon somewhere in the wing root.
Everyone loves trans-green.
Here's the bottom. Much nicer than the top, because I spent all my skill on this and the nose. Speaking of the nose, it used to be light bley, and sadly, I do not have that 1x2x4 upside down slope piece in dark bley. The trans yellow is some kind of infrared sensor or other crazy modern military tech.
Lift fan open.
Here is the rear thruster pointing down. It used to go all the way down, because I designed this all for a bigger plane. But some people didn't like the size, so I downscaled and now it doesn't work as well.
Bottom fan. Didn't really try here, there wasn't a lot of room.
All together now!
Clearer picture. Winter in Portland generally lasts from October to May, and we get really bad light as you see. Or maybe it's because I take pictures in my living room, where all the windows face east and north. I don't know, man.
Cats aren't the only pets that like to get all up in your business when photographing.
So there you have it, my first, and probably last, attempt at building planes in this style. Credit to Matt Hacker for the intakes. What to expect in coming days:
-A plane, a tank, POAM 2 2.0, and maybe, just maybe, something that's not COP or PCU.
