So - that's it... I'm done.
Finally!!! And this time it feels right 😊
Next Stop: 3D ... 😜
It's funny - I only wanted to add a Bottom View but ended up reworking almost the whole Frame … 🤷🏼♂️ because I felt the overall height to be to high and the Wing/main body proportions to be somewhat off …
But now it's finished, and quite honestly I'm pretty satisfied with it. - It looks sharp and fast (at least to me).
What do you think?
About the Hellcat VI - Excerpt from the official Douglas Aerospace database:
"[...] Well to be honest, technically, the Hellcat VI is nothing more than an updated Bearcat. ... During the Kilrathi-war the Hellcat was the one ship next to the Excalibur, that gave you a good feeling and a hint, that you might actually make it back. Then, after the war, we developed the Bearcat - a good ship and a better dogfighter - but somehow the design didn't click.
So with this new war against these Insects heating up, and a necessary update to the Bearcat imminent - we thougt it to be a good idea to rework "the outfit" with a design that brings back good memories and the feeling of reliability while also accepting more armor..."
