Yeah, the fin seems a bit pointless as it will be rendered from a top down perspective, but thanks for the suggestion.
heres latest render.

lookin nice . heh, one question though.. wheres the overhead flourescent light coming from for the reflection of the cockpit window? Hehehe, maybe you should delete that part of your shader . (if that is part of the shader). Or explain where thats coming from .

Heh, it's coming from a secret starbase that i have modeled, but it is invisible.... yet it still produces light... yes that will do.

actually i thought it looked cool, but you have a damn good point.

Id like to smooth it, but i can't do it without ruining all the geometry and hard edges. ANy tips for that?

but they are just one big wing....

adldesigner: but you're still right... its in the future and than they can fly without a fin

Blinn: the back wings are in that case also don't needed... expect if you want to add there some weapons... they seems a bit strange to me, but unfortunatly i can't say you why

but your fighter looks still cool
