I was asked by Stingray to work a little on the Blackbird he created with Nickasaurus (linked in the comments, I uploaded an unlisted version to show Stingray and it seems to have broken the successor system). It's cool to be working with two really high-profile builders, so thanks to them for that. I never watched the show, but it's a great design anyway.

Roll stability is a bit iffy here, but it's perfectly flyable. The main engines are shut off normally, hit action group 1 if you feel like 500mph just isn't cutting it for you

    @Aerobako it looks sorta like the colossal titan from Attack on Titan, but it's definitely not. What is it? As for next-gen fighters, check out the HESA F-313. It's not an art concept, but the general consensus is that there's no way it would fly, so it might as well be haha.

    @Aerobako any particular requirements? Jets, props, fighters, cargo, civilians, seaplanes? If there aren't any, check out the David Rose RP-4

    No, no anti-gravity used here. But there is a special spine in this one: https://www.simpleplanes.com/a/HY0m6B/Steampunk-Missile-Dreadnaught

    it glitches so weirdly like the sky becomes like minecraft and you float down or soar to 20,000,000 ft in the explosion (I have screenshot) at also 20,000,000mph lol@Skua

    @Halfstrike ohh, I see haha. I think there was something like that involved in the infinite fuel tank, but I don't really know, it's not something I would normally use

    @Halfstrike I don't actually know. What is it/what does it do? Most of my changes were cosmetic
