If you think THIS looks bad, you should have seen the hand-drawn sketches. Basic composition shot before I start modelling. Story goes like this: Dave and his lady will be escaping down the ladder to the pink cube which is their getaway vehicle. The red cubes just insulted the blue cube's mother.

And this is another fighter WIP - this one's got folding wings.

And now it's time for bed.

Welcome to the challenge!

I really like your second fighter a lot. It has much more detail than your first. Are you planning on detailing the other a little more? Its also a nice design, just needs more goodies on it.
Keep it up, and good luck to you!

Welcome to the challenge Paul!
If you want to see some ugly sketches come and see my thread.
Don`t worry. It`s a 3D contest. Nice fighter you have there.
What about your concept?
Don`t forget to put a shortcut in your signature. It will be easier for the others to follow your thread.
Good luck!!

Cheers fellas! Yeah, the second fighter is a lot more developed than the first, but they both still need a lot of work, natch. Radu - thanks for the heads up with the signature.

Concept is this:

So, I wanted to steer clear of aliens and keep it a bit terrestrial. And i wanted to get a few homages in. So it's 100 years in the future and tensions are running high between the U.S. and the Soviet Union, because of some reason that i haven't worked out yet. But anyway, it's all a big mistake because it's really all Space Al Qaeda's fault. But nobody knows except for our heroes.

Okay, so the structure in the foreground is the bottom of a space station. Our hero (let's call him Dave) and his soviet lady (let's call her Helga) are escaping down the ladder to their chums in the getaway vehicle (for that I'm thinking a cross between the ship in R-Type and B.A.'s van from the A-Team). And everything is kicking off in the background.
