Thanks guys!

Here's its theoretical successor, and also my personal take on the Boeing AFX design.

Something a bit different. ;)



Back story (in case the text is too small to read):

Given as a gift to the 12th Supreme President of Norajistan (Hajjaj Marghub Mansour) in 1946 to celebrate 200 years since the People's Republic declared its independence, the ceremonial Supremacy Car was built out of the engine and fuselage of a WWII Pattatoni PK.44 fighter plane piloted by the famous ace Norajistanian Air Force pilot Farid Ayham Mustafa who had over 40 confirmed kills in the historic air battle of Al Jazzaham. While originally only supposed to be used once in the 1946 parade and then retired into the Norajistanian Museum of History, the current Supreme President of Norajistan (Arslan Garayev) had the vehicle brought out of the Museum of History in 1988 for the yearly Norajistanian Armed Forces parade and since then has always arrived at it in the Supremacy Car. Both the interior and exterior of the vehicle have changed extensively since 1946. Originally the vehicle was a racing Coupe and thus only had room for a driver and one passenger, however in 1990 Arslan Garayev had the vehicle merged together with a turquoise colored Nehamar C401 series limousine, which required the exterior and interior of the vehicle be almost entirely redesigned from the ground up, leaving very little of the original car. The extended engine exhaust pipe means the doors of the vehicle cannot open, and thus the door handles were removed and a secondary support vehicle (typically a Norajistanian army pickup truck) must always accompany the Supremacy Car with a small set of stairs or ladder for the Supreme President to enter and exit the vehicle. Other changes include a solid gold lion welded to the hood of the vehicle for "navigational purposes", large flags of the Democratic People's Republic at the rear, air conditioning with a built in scented air-freshener, a working miniature fridge filled with beverages in the trunk, an HD surround stereo sound system as well as a color television in the dashboard of the vehicle, a small 1800s era cannon built into the engine compartment (which cannot actually be fired), the floor replaced with an expensive diamond and gold pattern, and more which has yet to be revealed to the public. When not in use by the Supreme President, the vehicle is typically sent off for maintenance and repairs. The shear amount of maintenance needed to keep the vehicle in working order requires it be tended to daily by a specially assigned Norajistanian Army battalion which has been estimated to spend up to 9% of the country's yearly budget on the vehicle. While many advise the vehicle finally be put to rest, Supreme President Arslan Garayev has refused to retire it as it "is a much needed asset for our glorious Democratic People's Republic."

Must be a V24, otherwise the Supreme President could enter the vehicle without the need for *ivory & lapis lazuli inlaid, gold-plated* ascension steps.




*___*; I made that bit up but it seems to fit the mind set. ;)

Nothing less than that would do for the steps. ;)

Here's another strange fighter design!



And some posters too!

Space battleships!



In the book 1984 by George Orwell, there are several mentions of "floating fortresses" operated by the country Oceania. Here's what I imagine they'd look like.



It also comes in PLAN flavor!

They also come in brand new/old Dazzle camouflage! Perfect for confusing enemy space battleships.

Some Luftwaffe rocketplanes, as well as an allied one that's also in the GB subforum.

That looks great, BlastWave!  That last one looks as though it could have been from an animated short movie.  Any plans on doing that?

Thank you, John!

Doing a full short film or animation would be a dream come true. I've had a lot of ideas for one, but I'm not talented at 2D or 3D animation, especially non side-view stuff/3D drawing. The closest I've come to anything like that is this small 30 second test animation I made awhile ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0czqk23K5Mk

Here's an atomic U-boat, based on an old 1949 concept for a "jet sub".

This design was inspired by the Republic TFX proposal which eventually lead to the F-111 Aardvark. Perhaps this is what it would look like if it made it to full production.

Here's a profile of an F-22N/NATF-22, based on the painting from 1980.



The original painting:



In order to make the profile, I 3D modeled the entire aircraft to ensure it would be accurate to the painting, so here's also a faux radar/wind tunnel document based on the one from the NATF-23.
