Pretty good looking, and not a bad concept. Worth an upvote for sure.
Stop trying to compensate with the ortho camera man, it makes the build look so weird

Phew, lots of people. I'd like to thank you all for the support you've shown this build. I hope the momentum can keep going.
@Alta2809 @KerlonceauxIndustries THANKS!
A decent build, not bad overall. It does have a couple issues though.
A couple pieces of advice for future reference:
- Tapered wings really enhance a build so I suggest learning the technique.
- I'd avoid glossy bodies, it actually enhances less smooth parts and overall makes the build look less aesthetic. 100% metallic and anything less than 30% smoothness is ideal.
- On that note, neatness is not bad at all. Needs some work but that comes with practice.
- Too many hard points. Aircraft of this size and weight class usually have a maximum of 9 pylons. It may seem trivial but there are good reasons for this.
edit (9 to 11)
Now, the flight model is a bit all over the place. It accelerates too quickly but the turn rate isn't all too bad. It's also too fast. the instant aoa vs sustained aoa thing is a common issue. The best way to fix the acceleration and speed issues is to use a realistic (or somewhat realistic) thrust setting on your engines and adjust drag to achieve the desired top speed.
Hopefully these tips will help on your next build.
@Dllama4 I gotta say, an 18 part meme build getting 74 upvotes really does highlight the problem with the community.
Nice build. As a hint, F9 turns off the HUD.
@Pilotmario @randomusername @GabetheDoge Thank you guys.
@Shadowed This is really good. Looks great for the most part (some bits of not so stellar panelling but hey, its a very curvy aircraft) and overall, the choices made were good.
The flight model is a little hit and miss, especially in the pitch department. Pitching seems to cause stall and nodding when you don't fully apply it. Maybe that's just a cause of flying with keyboard vs mouse.
Still, this is definitely good quality work.
@EternalDarkness yeah, you're right. I suppose my only qualm with the colour was that it was too glossy.
@MBR6753 no problem, I have no doubt you'll get even better quickly.
@switdog08 that's very kind of you. Glad you like it.
@Sadboye12 yes, super smooth
This is a good effort but you didn't quite get the right delta wing shape. Yours is too wide and too short compared to the Ye-8s.
But still, great effort. Keep focusing on your shaping and smoothing and you won't have any issue improving.
Thanks for the upvotes!
@KerlonceauxIndustries owo to you too
thanks for the upvotes
@MUTE well ain't that interesting
Superb looks and it flies really well.
@KerlonceauxIndustries swift as always, thanks
I'm a simple man. I see a mobile suit, I upvote
Words don't do justice to how impressed I am with this build. You've done it again!
@Trainzo @yoshicraze @Strikefighter04
Thanks, you guys!
@NFIGMT Thank you so much. I think it could do with some refinement but I'm pleased you like it.
@KerlonceauxIndustries To you too
@Stargazzer Not at all, this deserves it
@KerlonceauxIndustries Aw, don't say that. Alas, my computer finally lost to detail and scale. I wish I could have fitted it out with a full amphibious loadout (but then we'd be looking at a 4000 part build)
@NirvashTec very cool, thank you
@Gauss @communisticbanana @KerlonceauxIndustries Thanks.
@AdlerSteiner slopes everywhere
@DeidaraEnterprises I am Dio after all
@exosuit fun sized vicky
@randomusername First time I've seen a comparison like that, I really like it. Do you mind giving me a link to your jet?
@PositivePlanes Let's see how it goes. Thanks for the upvote
@PyrusEnderhunter Thank you
@Peanor @RocCrafter101 Thanks.
It's funny I see this, I built what would happen if an F-18 and an Su-33 had kids.
Very nice build
@TheRussiansAreComing thank you, I'll continue working my way to gold. Hopefully I'll get more traction to my builds.
@randomusername Whoops, forgot about that.
Should work fine now.
@Abhishek700 @JED http://www.simpleplanes.com/a/DrVz7R/Eurofighter-Twister-EF-2030-No-mods
Here's a link to it without any mods. Have fun.
@KerlonceauxIndustries Oh no, haha. Thanks for the spotlight and upvote. Gonna keep working on its updates in the background.
@Frenchfry @KerlonceauxIndustries @Feanor @yoshicraze @Aarons123 Thanks for the upvotes.
@KerlonceauxIndustries Thank and yeh. Let's see anybody sink this bad boy.
@Texasfam04 As always, thanks. Your encouragement keeps me motivated.
@DuckMint Strange place indeed. Perhaps for under sand operations
@GeneralOliverVonBismarck @Texasfam04 Thanks guys.
@Blue0Bull ah yeah, I definitely dropped the ball there. In the future I'll build my wings slightly differently to make rounded tips easier. Glad you like it.
@Aerofy you're correct, I forgot to change it. Should be 1192 kW. Thanks for enjoying it.
@Hedero many thanks, I see the resemblance to the VB.10, haha
