Well, after soem trial & error. The 45th's engineers have produce an new space/air superiority fighter. The SAF-32 Falcon.

Unlike the the Vulture & Warthog, where it's VTOL capability only requires landing skids & rails. The Falcon requires an airstirp with it's retractable landing gear.

This is not the final version, I'm awaiting a order from Lego at the moment, which will have pieces to smooth her out and build an extra Falcon & Vulture.

Hot damn that's nice; excellent work again ROC.

I know you are still working on it, but the only critique I would have is the wings being essentially rectangles. I don't know if there is a way for you to taper them in one direction or another. But that's a small matter; it is quite excellent.

The plating emphasizes it, I'm going to mess with it more when my order comes in.

Best pic :) Front looks good but I agree on the square wings, though in that pic it's not a problem. Your airforce is really starting to look badass, top notch.

Holy crap. When you say you're going to build something, it sure doesn't take long.
I love this ship, it's really sleek while still fitting the 45th's style. Like other commenters said, the engine is probably the best part. I'm not sure I mind the wings so much, the square-ish shape is sort of fitting. Awesome work overall, this is probably one of my favorite fighters.

Nice job using handcuffs to hold the missile.

This is a good fighter. I like how you made the engine take up a lot of the fuselage just like a real fighter.

It might look better with swept wings. But it's still very awesome. And it definitely looks like an air-superiority fighter. Nice missiles, too.

Ohhh. Just noticed I forgot this, it's probably obvious with this cockpit design, but the cockpit opens up...

hmmm... They're okay, but now they seem too small for some reason, as they look to be around the same dimensions as the first ones. Idk, with these the frontal part looks a little long.

Even more awesome! Is that a hinge I see? Do they fold for storage?
