I like the design. It looks a bit complicated but Im sure when coloured it would make more sense.

Awesome design, mikecharles; your signature drafting-like lineart and hatching really shines through here. The only issue I see is a physics one: I don't see a tail rotor or other means of countering the main rotor's torque. If you can explain it, that'd be great. :)

:iconmikecharles:
mikecharles Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2010
its a NOTAR system. instead of using a tail rotor it uses compressed air for stabilization. here is the wiki link [link] . and thanx.

I'm familiar with NOTARs, but the downside is that their nozzles are hard to spot, especially the peripheral slots. :p

Thanks for the clarification!

cool. i had to make them hard to spot, trying to keep as near a stealth profile as possible.

FYI -For now, it's a no go w/ Joe Rosas for the colorist gig. Some family issue tying him up. Didn't go into detail. Perhaps down the road tho... :shrug:
