Controversial Development / F-2A Viper Zero

I've been thinking about converting my F-16C V5 into a F-2A for a while and finally got around to it. The conversion actually wasn't too hard--the wings, stabilators, and LERX's had to be enlarged and the fuselage was lengthened a la GATTACA style (painfully).

The fuselage is done but I haven't started on a majority of the custom weapons. I have finished the AAM-5 seen here, but that's all for now. Each AAM-5 is 14 parts and currently performs like a longer range AIM-9X. The plane itself is 400 parts without the 2 missiles.


Ace Combat Poster Child / NF-15B STOL/MTD

This is a quick secret project I started working while I was making the F-15E. The STOL/MTD is different from the ACTIVE I made a while back--it does not get the more powerful F100-PW-229's, but it does get the 2D thrust vectoring nozzles, which respond to pitch and roll.


Did you know the NF-15B STOL/MTD has a smaller airbrake than the regular F-15?

This time around, I added reverse thrust, which dramatically reduces the runway length needed for landings. It can also be activated in flight for extreme deceleration.

Currently, the build is at 489 parts and it will not be equipped with weapons.

Other quick side note: Yes, I have been doing more modifications of previous projects recently because university takes a lot of time.

    @EngieWeeb It was actually easier than I thought
    My dumb brain used to think 25% larger airframe meant it was actually scaled by 1.25 but its just longer fuselage and wider wings

    Excited for both of these builds. Was waiting for the viper zero to get a remake and seeing the MTD get a remake as well is great to see.
