63cpe reply #3-  The reason the Swift fuselage looks so dowdy is when they transitioned from the large diameter centrigugal flow engine of the Attacker to the Swift, they kept pretty much the same fuselage diameter.  I have no clue why.  So even though it had a axial flow engine, it did not have the slim fuselage of its contemporaries.

Thanks gentlemen!

@ Royabulgaf: yes, but not only that, it's also the short, turned up nose...still somehow the fuselage doesn't fit the wings, stabilo and tail...

Still got to add splitterplates..

63cpe yes.  The Swift Mk 7 looked better with the long nose.  Then, they hang those pipework missile racks under it.  Sigh

Should have put them on the wingtips maybe?

But a Fireflash was anything but elegant............
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

Ok, might aswell change the planned fireflashes to firestreaks, under the wings..

Fantabulous.  The fin needs to extend back further IMO but that's just a personal aesthetic thing.
Other than that its very nice.
Well done.
