It's also worth noting that the sort of plywood that's capable of taking the strain of high subsonic flight has more in common with advanced composits than the 3' by 6' sheets you by at the hardware store and they take every bit as much skilled manpower to fabricate.

VF-11 Thunderbolt from the Macross series:

Quote:
In the early 2020's, the U.N. Government found itself requiring a new type of variable fighter with a combat profile much different from that of the current VF-5000 fighter. In 2022, development began on the VF-11 Thunderbolt, a design descended directly from the original VF-1 Valkyrie (though the two Battroid mode silhouettes are similar, the structures vary greatly). After the VF-1, few variable fighter airframes were multi-environment and were limited operating either in the air or in space. The VF-11 Thunderbolt broke from the norm and was a legitimate multipurpose successor to the VF-1. The program proceded on schedule and the VF-11's first flight was made in 2028. Early in the development process, then Captain Milia Jenius of the Eagle Nest Aerial Tactics Center became one of many vocal advocates for the inclusion of the forward canard wing on the VF-11, a design choice which caused heated debate. While the canard wing enhanced the VF-11's maneuverability considerably in an atmosphere, the increased air resistance also limited the fighter's maximum speed. Fortunately, Captain Jenius piloted the No. 2 VFX-11 prototype (fitted with a canard, unlike the No. 1 prototype) in an operation to rescue a U.N. chief advisor. The flight data collected during this operation convinced the U.N.G. to adopt the VF-11 with the canard wing implemented. In December 2030 mass production of the VF-11 began and the Thunderbolt officially replaced the VF-4 Lightning III as the main variable fighter of the U.N. Spacy.

You're my hero.

No kidding, but I always thought about what it would be like to do the Macross in Sb-scale.

My first attempt at a monoplane so go easy on me.

The Antioch-Sinclair AS-1 Ravens Talon is a single seat monoplane fighter, the first design by the team of William Antioch and Geoffrey Sinclair it marks the first step in a new era of aircraft manufacture and design. (Better back story will come later)

Your version is way too blocky.

This is more as it's supposed to look:

It's not all that bad a start, although I recommend that you keep it plain scheme while you work on it.


Edit: Also, this aircraft, with the fact that you have no rearward vision, would also have a spine running behind the cockpit to the rudder, much like the Spitfires or the P-47s.
If they had it as you have it now, they would without a doubt put in a canopy with 360 view.

I know a couple of pipe fitters who'd love to make hulls for you. :D
In all seriousness, you need to work on the shaping a lot.

Are you working on any more Macross related drawings?

Most likely variable fighters, since most of the Macross ships are on the scale of around 250 to 4000+ meters.
