Contact - Air to Air Fighter by Shimmering-Sword Contact - Air to Air Fighter by Shimmering-Sword
Haven't done a serious fighter design project for a while, so this was fun. Inspirations taken from Russian aesthetic, some F22 stealth lines, and a hint of macross flair :D

An Air Superiority Fighter 30 years in the future. Fast, highly maneuverable, and packed with weaponry.

It looks like the love child between an F/A-22, a Wyvern, and a Falken xD

I like this a lot. I reminds me of the jet from X-Men. From the looks and description, this is probably much more dangerous than that.

I used this jet as a model for some practice in 3ds max. I have completed the model, and would like to know if I could have your permission to post the low poly version on my page. This is not for personal gain, just to help get back into Max after spending a while in Maya.

Sure, just credit it to the game Contact RPG. It's published now, so technically you can practice on these designs as fan art.

You should upload a version without the wireframes on. maybe a higher angle shot with a longer lens too (longer lens flattens the perspective, less fish eye effect).
My main critiques so far would be to put aerodynamic profiles on the wings, and in general more rounding of forms.

Looks like the offspring of an Su-47 Berkut and an F-22 Raptor. Sexy, deadly, and very much practical.

This looks like it also took inspiration from Saab's line of canard/delta-wing fighters, too.

Ok its a good looking jet but realisticly the design wouldnt work due to both cannards and tailplanes do the same thing and both together reduces stability making plane go boom into ground

Have you played "Saints Row The Third"? There is a plane there thats called a STAG VTOL. And it looks an aweful lot like it. Yours looks pretty sick though.

Yeah, I noticed yours was first. By about a year and a half. And your fighter looks better. Somehow the VTOL version doesn't fit in the real world while yours does.

Thanks. All my success on DA is based on the support of my fans, so as much as possible I try to return the attention you guys deserve. I used to also thank everyone on their page for faves, but once you start getting several hundred of those a day it gets unrealistic :D
