Re: Tailplanes - Who needs 'em?

Hooray for necroing my own thread... Anyhow, I've finally had some time to get back to the redesign of the Firehawk:

Image

Still rather rough, but would the configuration of the forward VTOL engine-wossnames work? Should I make 'em bigger?

Re: Share your Artistic Talents

The weapon itself is an...
