Thanks for the comment! It's actually smaller than mini-figure scale. I still haven't come up with a way to retract the gear with this style of construction... but I'm still working on it..;)
The 1st version of this had a pointier nose - 4 pegs, vs. 8 pegs. The cannon was tucked in on the right w/the refueling system hidden on the left. It looked good, but when I designed the 2 seater w/the larger nose (originally w/out an internal cannon) I was just taken by the cleaner lines.
This thing looks pretty great overall. I especially like the underwing ordinance and the missiles hung below the fuselage. SNOT looks cool, too. Their just two things they I think should be changed: the cockpit (so a minifig finds its place) & the nose (it should be somewhat pointier...). Other than that, a pretty cool fighter. Steffen P.S. What about landing gear; does it retract?
