More refining and contouring the roughed in parts.

Some hidden styling on the central reactor/thruster so the bottom of it contours to the leg thrusters.

Also some hard surfacing and contour styling of the chest plate.

Minor refinement on the wings.

It's reeeeealllly hard to avoid the detailing at this point. All I want to do is start chopping panel lines, but it is taking all of my strength to avoid it for now - I want to remain focused on the shape of the overall plane, and how the different parts relate to each other - then style the crap out of them.

I see what you mean about the legs looking square; the intakes look just a bit too wide at the fronts. Try reducing the diameter of them horizontally and tapering them slightly so they widen as they go back. if you look at the blueprints, you'll see what I mean.

 

Aside from that, looks like the craft is looking really good! :thumbup

Maybe a little. These are just blocked in for now. I did trace them from the Kawamori drawing to get the proportions, but will start referring to the blueprints for the next passes.

 

Second pass will refine them and shape them out.

I know they slightly taper in at the front, bulge back out around the shoulder centerline, then taper back down hard as they get to the bottom of the knee. I always loved that curve!

 

Pengbuzz, regarding the legs, currently I have them as symmetrical down the middle. In reality, I will have to flatten the inside 'calf' to facilitate the arms in the proportions we are looking for. Look at the current front view. Once I flatten the inside leg, there should be a lot of room for thick arms.

Ah, gotcha. Looking forward to your progress!
