I think this will be quite a long project. Basically trying to do a fairly original looking space plane, one that can fly in space and in a planet’s atmosphere.
I am happy with the basic shape, it’s based on a cold war nuclear bomber, and I also plan to do it as low poly as is feasible.
I plan for it to have the VTOL ability. So i’m thinking along the lines of having three nozzles near to the back of the engine bays. These point straight down and the thrust from the rear engines is directed into them via some magic machine that’s hidden in the engine compartment. I really have no idea how any of this stuff works
There will also be a fan system just to the rear of the cockpit. Doors on the top and underside of the fuselage will open up as the plane comes into land. Something similar to the system used by the F-35.
Comments are always welcome. Thanks for dropping by.
