The "L Craft" Future Fighter Concept

A future fighter concept, from the year 2040.

Designed to operate in the atmosphere, under water, or in space, equally well. In native MODO format, it includes a pop-up controller allowing you to animate the complete interior and exterior lighting system, turn the pilot's head, open and close the canopy, retract and extend the landing gear, open and close the weapons bay doors, open and close a nose cone containing an emitter weapon, a retractable boarding ladder, and even includes a slider to vary the "wear and tear" from a new, factory look, to a worn and scratched effect. All wheels rotate properly when moved along the ground.

If you'd like to see the development of this model, the follow-along article is here.
