Nice modelling! I feel really churlish pointing out that those are F-14 Tomcats, not F-15 Eagles ;)

Thinks,I had corrected it.

Well whatever they are, they've been extremely well modelled and textured!

That they are :)

Great work! How many polys?

Can you post a Perspective view showing your lighting rig for the first image, please? That's definately my favourite :)

Why is the landing gear out? :question:

Nice model :thumbsup:

Presumably, because it's easier to model an air machine with it's geat out, then fold it back in, than it is to model an air machine with it's gear stowed, then figure out a way to extend it.

Hmmm... on the 2nd picture the writing near the back is left-to-right mirrored... "YARG" (gray backwards?!)

Same thing with AO3 or AQ3 on the port wing. He forgot to flip his image maps.

Same thing with AO3 or AQ3 on the port wing. He forgot to flip his image maps.

He didn't forget to flip em, he just made one for both sides... if he flipped one, the nose would be on the tail, and one wing would be inside out or upside down or something equally confusing.

Anyhoo.... Answer333....

The missiles don't look like anything that an F14 might carry, and should be on pylons / rails rather than just stuck on to the surface of the wing / fuselage.

The nose gear doors should be in 4 parts rather than 2, and the main doors seem to have a large chunk missing.

I think the nose section is maybe 40% or 50% bigger overall than it should be. leaving the nose gear about 2m further back than the real thing, and the nose doors & target designator under the nose far too long.

The tanks should be longer & further forward, and you have forgotton to add the large strake under each engine pod that starts just aft of the wing T/E & ends around the middle of the taileron.
The fins need to be much more tapered towards the top, as they are very square. if you follow the line of the black part of the fin it will be closer.

The taileron tips could do with being rounded off. These look like the square cutaway ones you would find on an F15

Other than that & a few little niggles, it looks good. Nicely lit to match the BG.
