1940s Space Fighter by MikeDoscher 1940s Space Fighter by MikeDoscher
This is a piece I did for a d20 game called Rocketship Empires:1936 [link] It seems like everyone is doing retrofuturism now. :)

i love this fighter, i see the spitfire and the meteor, but the leading edge of the wing has a very f-18/flanker feel, was this intentional?

Thanks, I'm glad you like it. The big smoky cannons at the wing roots were ripped off from the Fulcrum, more than anything.

Thanks- That's one of the details I like about the Mig-29, although you see it on other modern fighters as well. I did it venting from the breach, but usually you'll see it just behind the muzzle of weapons that are recessed into the wing root or forward fuselage. Usually they'll be a steel or unpainted stainless steel louvered panel, as it's more heat resistant. In art terms, it lets something more interesting be done with the smoke and light from a muzzle flash than just the usual. :)

Oooooh. That is awesome. I actually recently watched an episode of Doctor Who, where they had Spitfires in space. So this is awesome.
