Entry for Jon Palmer's P-38 Lightning Space Contest
About this creation
This starfighter was my entry for Jon Palmer's P-38 Lightning Space Contest . The idea was to design a starfighter that retained the design qualities of the WW-II era fighter . Although my entry was not a winner, I liked the way I transferred the P-38's design into my starfighter.
Like the original P-38, my starfighter features a centerline cockpit pod, twin fuselage, and intersecting horizontal stabilizer. However, in place of the propeller engines are the laser cannons and I integrated the engines into the horizontal stabilizer. Also, for added flair, I added wingtip mounted missiles.
