Day 2, design is looking great

I have been putting a lot of thought into the design of this airplane. Today I focused on the frontal area of the plane, including the canopy and the air intake. In order to maintain smooth aerodynamics as well as optimal air intake, I have been attempting to design a good way to bevel the body's thickness down to the intake. So far so good. The pic below should give you an idea about what I mean.


1.) Canopy elongated
2.) Method of attachment from canopy to body beginning to take shape
3.) Intake design taking shape
4.) Exhaust duct narrowed to actual diameter of the engine tunnel
5.) Basic vert stabilizer shape drawn
6.) Side view of plane drawn.
