Well, I don't usually make planes, but here we go. This is a fighter plane that will appear in the upcoming first issue of the Occupied comic. I know very little about how planes work, so please forgive inaccuracies. :)

Only things I can recommend are making the vertical stabalizer a bit thinner and making it jet-powered.

Thanks! Making the vertical thinner is exactly what I was thinking; I'll work on it. Right now it's Japanese, simply because the red symbols were the first thing I found, but it's going to be Nazi in the end. I'm thinking about perhaps making an Iron Cross decal for the side.

How would I make it jet-powered? I'm very ignorant about those things.

Like I said in my edit, if it's a Nazi plane I think it could be jet-powered.

That looks great Napo, of course I'm looking at design and balance, if that helps any. :o)
I really like the wings, very cool.

Thanks, MC! The wings were my favorite part to build, just because of the shape and direction. Building from different angles instead of just stacking is always fun.

Cool! I like the SNOT wings and the futuristic feel to the plane.

Yes! Thank you, that was exactly what I was aiming for: Neo-WWII, like most things in Occupied.

I really like the wings and the reversed cockpit part. Are those animal teeth plates being used for the engine vents? If so nice job using them that way.
As for the tail use some jumper plates to make it a single stud wide.
