The Garcia F-1 Blackfish is a stealth fighter/bomber developed by Garcia Blackworks for the Alaskan Airforce. The Blackfish is capable of carrying it's massive payload for nearly 12,000 NM. It's main feul tank is six feet wide, two feet tall, and fourteen feet long, and that's only it's main tank! (The Blackfish is built on a 1 stud=1 foot ratio.) It has two five-foot diameter engines, making it extremely fast and powerful. The massive thrust-to-weight ratio enables it to outclimb and outrun all of it's likely opponents. Statistics:
Wingspan: 62 feet
Fuselage length: 35 feet
Range, over 12,000 NM
Maximum speed is classified
The Blackfish has a 23mm gatling gun mounted in the right intake wall for close-range encounters and strafing.
Payload is carried in the twin bomb bays. Each bay is five feet wide, fourteen feet long and four feet deep. >.>
The Blackfish can carry virtually anything you can put in its bomb bays. It's only limitation is a comparitively small radar which can only detect enemies out to 60 miles. This lack is made up for by built-in ECM capabilities and helmet mounted visually aimed missile tracking system.
The Blackfish's engines are vented with a plated design of heat absorbing material which greatly reduces IR. signature.
The Blackfish has three large airbrakes, that enable the fighter to temporarily reduce it's speed down to 250mph, enabling it to strafe ground targets. When used skillfully, the flaps can be extrememly usefull in a high speed dogfight, causing the opponent to overshoot.
A ECM variant of this fighter is being produced for the Alaskan Airforce. The ECM variant has no weapons, and looks essentially the same from the exterior.
Here's the photos. I'm to busy to add captions right now, so sorry if they're not very self-explanitory.
Quoting Kaiser Pharaoh Cliffe
I smell an Ho-229 in there... anyway, absolutely beautiful combat flying machine there. I am a total sucker for just about any flying wing. The fact that it's black makes it even better.
It's almost a direct cross between a Ho-229 and a Lamborghini Gallardo. I've always loved Lamborghinis, but I don't have any wheels big enough for one. One of the main blueprints for this was a printed off blueprint of a Lambo with engines and wings drawn on. After that I kept adding in cool stuff, then started in on the shaping. I gave up on it about a year ago, then went back to finish it a month or so ago. It's been around for a while. I couldn't figure out the intakes for the longest time. All I had was the outer wings and tail strut. The cutback idea on the leading edge of the wing was due to the fact that my first two prototypes had waaaay to small wings to the point that they didn't even look good. I think it was worth the time to come up with... =]
Not to brag or anything, but I think it's gonna be years before I top this one.
Awesome, Jack! This might be my favorite aircraft of yours. I love the shape of the wing and the landing gear, and the canopy you used couldn´t fit any better to such a machine. Great stuff! Reminds me a lot of the B-2, as well as the YB-49 which I like a lot despite its apparent instability...
