Space-Race Era Star Fighter
This little ship is my entry for the Real World Fighter Contest over on Flickr.
About this creation
Take a look at the group page for more info on the contest.

The basic idea of the contest is to build a fighter that uses technology that already exists or is not far from existing.

I wanted to build a fighter that looks like it may be from the Space-Race era. Everything on those early spacecraft is messy and naked (no paneling).

Anyway, I hope you all like it and good luck to all those who are competing!












All the equipment a fighter pilot might need. What kind of equipment? I don't know, I'm not a fighter pilot, but I'm sure he has everything he needs.


These adjustable solar panels power all the electric equipment onboard. They can be rotated and angled for optimum solar absorption.


The big gold tank you see here is the oxygen tank. Plenty of air for lengthy dogfights.






One of the requirement of the contest is that the fighter has to carry a nuke. This one carries it on it's underbelly.


I wish I had a sticker that says "Skadoosh!" or maybe "ET Go Home!".

Asymmetrical beauty, and covered with NPU's to boot! Cheers =)

I absolutely love this one. I can imagine this being a ship design from a 70's or 80's sci-fi flick such as Space Odyssey (2001 or 2010) or Enemy Mine. Brilliant design.

I really like this; a very original concept-a great "what if..." creation. You could imagine such a ship being developed in the 1960s.

The mixtures of the greys is very cool. One of my favorite things are the gold tanks and other gold tidbits. Nice work and good luck in your contest.

I volunteer to fly it. Just not a fan of the side mounted solar panels. Takes away from the dogfighter look. Other than that its great.

Epic! It's a near-perfect mixture of futuristic space and old 60s NASA.

Quoting Rabid Goldfish Just curious. Where's the machine gun? It's technically not a fighter without one. Sorry, just me being picky. Nicely made, definitely feels right for the era. Gorgeous greeblies too. ^Blub^
They don't look all that machine gun-like but they are on the sides of the cockpit. Glad you like it! :)

Sweet work!!! The mix of grey gives it a real touch of authenticity. It's got a nice 60's NASA vibe going on.

The capsule, bomb and panels are fantastic and it is great overall, but maybe a pinch too much greebling in the back.

Wow. What an excellent bit of greebling. Love the humorous descriptions. I like the cockpit design and the canopy is very inventive. Nice work.
