That's really cool, GJE52!

I like how you rendered that famous white Navy training scheme.

Beautiful!!  I hope you'll do the next step, a proposal that's a mix of F-100, F-107, and a touch of F-104 (engine is a J79) as chronicled in the monograph Jard Zichek published.

Some really nice work!  What are you using to modelin/render everything (if you don't mind me asking)?  Great level of detail, by the way.
