The 3D Software shot did not do the Interceptor justice. Looks good in flight. Can´t wait to see it skinned :)

yeah, there's not a whole lot of info on the 108 ... one could assume (oh! that word!), it'd be skinned/painted like it's Big Brother, the Valkyre. (heat resistant finish that alwasy peeled off)

Yes but you still have smoothing errors because you have awful kinks and bends in your mesh flow. Make sure the edges flow properly like they would on the real airframe and as I've drawn in blue below:

Heh.

 

That would actually a be a picture of my F-108A that I gave to TopGun over at the CivIII forums to use for his mods for CivIII.

 

No one get their panties in a bunch...Ed's Rapier is significantly different from mine. Just letting folks know there are two separate F-108s in development.

Thanks FC. I know that the F-108 changed shape significantly from the time of it's inception (1957) to it's cancellation (September 1959) so it's a shame that these appear to be very similar in shape. But, as always, vive la difference!

nice paint scheme ..found that pic using a Google search under F-108 also found this pic..Notice how the front canopy opens on this one...

Had no idea there was another WIp,,how close to release ? This way I can scrap mine and concentrate on something else.

Interesting paint scheme, but fairly silly changes. The forward hinged canopy is silly ... but the landing gear is worse. You wouldn't see gear like that on a nearly 100,000 lb class fighter.

 

Anyway, the F-108 has actually been pretty far along for a while...it just got derailed by real life.

As you can see, it is actually pretty far along...even has the proper 'clamshell' ejection seats and rotating missile bay. Was in the middle of fine tuning the FM when it was put on hold.

 

Spinners, funny you mention the changes it went through while being developed...after it was cancelled NAA proposed yet another tweaking that gave it large LERXes, and folding ventral fins. I have the book at home...it looked significantly different from what most people think of.

Veltro's back in business.. I say "welcome back":good:

 

Funny as I was dritfing around wikipedia few days ago and found XF-108 I never had knowledge of... (yes... that's true :blush:) and now you're showing wips of it -nice coincidence :drinks:

(or conspiracy! :wink: )

 

BTW I very much like the similarities to A-5 in it's fuselage shape (to my untrained eye)

Towards the end the fuselage lost the B-70 look and became more like the A-5A with the fuselage virtually in line with the intakes.
