F-38 Silent Knight (W.I.P)
I just can't go too long without building something, so even though the guardian was not yet dismantled, i started buliding this yesterday. It's a 5th gen, VTOL (vertical takeoff and landing), carrier based fighter. WORK IN PROGRESS people, also as i mentioned at the end of the guardian, i am going to be out till the 11th and can't work on it till then, but please leave your suggestions and comments, i will try my best to respond to them.
About this creation
This is also part of my carrier battle group.
It will serve as the primary fighter aboard the Adriatic class super carriers, yes that's what the super carrier will be called -
DNS Adriatic CVN-5


Length: 50 studs
Wingspan: 38 studs
Tailspan: 18 studs
Height: 13 studs <- STUDS not BRICKS




Rear, from this angle it looks more like a cargo plane.




Back of the cockpit, i couldn't make it streamlined here, you will see why later.

Air intake

This is why i couldn't make the back of the cockpit stramlined

Cool feature #1: Vertical lift fan, You have no idea how hard i worked to incorporate this, infact, i have been trying to incorporate this somehow since the F-1. Maybe because for this moc, i had no plan - diagrams that i make - i just started building a fighter plane, i think it turned out pretty well.

Closer look, The white area that you see, that's the floor :)

Cool feature #2 Folding wings! Because it's a carrier based fighter.

closer look

1 wing Folded an 1 extended

Cool feature #3 Flush Flaperons, by that i mean that there is no gap between them and the rest of the wing, as it was in my previous planes.



Cool feature #4 Fully moving rudders, i 'stole' this idea from the Sukhoi PAK FA/T-50.
You can also see the elevator.

Another shot for the elevator and rudder

Yet again

Really! how many pictures did i take of this!

Just love this shot, the wings are slightly angled upwards, this makes it look so much like the YF-23

Bottom shot

Front gear operation



Bottom Vertical fan doors, i had to close the top one because it's upside down.

Closer look

Bottom door closed.

Rear gear, i didn't make the gear bays yet.

Rear gear retracted
