Theres something not quite right with it and I can't seem to put my finger on it.  :shaking:
BTW i've found quite a few different/odd/funny/wow imaginary aircraft that could look very cool

Neato, but the rear end of the cockpit is way too long, and the big thing on the center needs to be pulled up/the sides around it need to be lowered, so it's more raised than blended into the body :) (If you want to make it look like the pictures :) ).

If you sort out the wing roots - that will sort the first stage. You're going to have to spend more than your usual amount of polys though. It's a nice complex shape  :)

I see three major differences: (unless you planned it that way)

1.) you have 3 rear intakes versus the depicted 4.  The back of the raised cockpit has to go all the way back and divide the rear section with 2 vents per side. you have it ending before the vent in the middle of the three.

2.) The flaps for the air brakes are not defined (probably going to be added as a texture later on I would guess at this point).

3.) You side intakes are totally off. Doesn't help you got three diff ref sources and 1 of them differs greatly (the angled part of the outer side sloping downward towards the wings while the fuselage side is flat).

That's my impression.

1. Good catch, I'll fix that.
2. Flaps are kinda unnecessary as this will a space-based version, sorta like my F-19, but they could be textured on.
3. I don't remember how many undo-restarts I had with those. The model is much too shiney to get a good idea of whats what. Although I think the inside-inside of the intake isn't straight up and down rather it's part of the main hull (slanted), unlike the intakes outside wall.


Heres some more better looking ones, they used a dull finish instead of gloss.
Hmm wish I still had my model of it when i was a kid.  :sigh:

Nice plane, too bad it can never be a spacecraft. If you can make it spacecraft-like then I might like it.
I have created a masterpiece.

 
Replace the air intakes with bussard scopes, add gun mounts and vola  ;7

a 3d cockpit versus the current hill like rise would realy add to the feel of flying an earth fighter in space.

 


The vertical layout isn't quite the same... mines a bit fatter
Cockpit layout isn't correct, I just cut the cockpit out of the hull to give some sense.

looking nice. but where the gun/missle ports? you dont want a starfox: command situation with lasers shooting off of blank places in the wings!

 
Well the missiles are house internally, as for the guns, I don't know if the Ferret would have had guns, the F-119 doesn't.  For the starship version, possibly under the intakes, only real place thats thick enough.

Update?  Sorry I lost track of this thread for a while....

Yeah looks a LOT closer to teh pics! I see one possible discrepency, the wing vent's outer wall. You got a sort of rounded cap raised up off the hull. In teh pics it slants downward at an angle forward all the way to the hull with no bump.

Damn it's so shiny it is hard to tell details on that sucker. :D

Never heard of the F-119 - did you mean the F-117?  BTW, I like the way the stealth F-22 does the trick - they house the gun in a port that opens when the gun fires, and then closes afterwards.  Keeps it stealthy... I'm sure Stealth would love that.

Is the F-22's gun mount a port that opens and closes?  I thought it was a thin protective strip that broke on contact with the first round (just like WWII style guns that were protected from dust using red tape).

Nope.  Google for a video of it being tested; it's cool.  8)
