A few other DeviantArt pages - not all of these artists major on aircraft, but there's some interesting stuff here.

I suspect we've only scratched the surface of Deviantart so far.

Amazing!  :o

But which way does it go?
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Cutangus is a genius, and I really encourage anyone who hasn't seen his work before to check out his deviantART gallery. It is highly inspiring.

Wow, some good stuff there! I must say I love the Longhorn Gunship - I have the Bandai kit of the standard Gunship, and I might just have to convert it to a Longhorn now! :wub: :wub:
Some of my models can be found on my Flickr album >>>HERE<<<

surely that Migasaur should be in Chinese markings  ;D  :unsure:
you may as well all give up -- the truth is much stranger than fiction.

Ultimately, anyone building this cigar shaped machine should consider Cuban AF markings... :lol:

I must admit I find the rear aspect, if it is the back end with the prop  :blink:, the most pleasing of this design.

Fantastic concept and grows on me daily, so I await your endeavours Mr Tomcat  :thumbsup:

He-162X2 by TheXHS


This is sooo cool!  :bow: Absolutely brilliant design!

Move the wings a little lower and the engines a little further aft and it would look a lot like an A-10! Not that that's a bad thing.
Cheers,
Moritz
