i built your plane using just the picture then put a v1 engine in it. It looks more like a spitfire because the cockpit is spitfire look. Right now im making a p51 mustang(its gonna be big) lol. =)

You should actually try to make one that can fly. I'm not trying to dis you or anything, it is a very good design. I'm talking about seeing if you can make knex fly. It would be interesting to see.

 It would be nice to try. But then it won't just be knex.

exactly. The plane might all be foam and engine stuff plus only about seven pieces of knex.

i have seen this before, but how about you rig a motor to the ceiling and tie a string to it and the plane. like the plane in toy story, when buzz jumps of the bed and grabs onto it. :)

 The first doesn't really look like one. Because it's full of gaps. But the latest version does.

The model 2319 standard issue Firehawk starfighter V1.2.2. An incredibly fast (Mach 14) but not so maneuvreble sci-fi starfighter. Armed to the teeth with missiles, railguns and a heavy plasma cannon of small size. Can transform into the Banshee, the most manouvreble starfighter in the universe, though it can only reach 700 kmph. (430 mph.) The name and looks from the Firehawk were inspired by the GDI Firehawk from Command and Conquer 3. The name and looks of the Banshee were inspired by the Nod Banshee from Command and Conquer 2 and by some alien aircraft from Starfighter:Dispuited Galaxy. Perhaps I will even post it soon. So, tell me what you think!
