First of all, thanks for your replies :)
This aircraft's main function was to swooshable :P It was made for play - so it is a little basic in terms of detailing. Secondly, I am sadly away from my LEGO this time - I only had a short visit to the sacred halls last week and thought I would take some pics to share.
Point being - sadly I can't make any immediate improvements, but I that doesn't mean I am not listening ;)
I like the idea of detailing the engine more, and the plane in general, including the cockpit. Tiles on the wings may give a good visual effect, but I fear it would also make the wings look too heavy and thick.
About the wheels... Well, that is more a question of availability than choice - I definitely see your point!
To be honest, I seem to remember I was trying to base it on a ME109(From my mental), which is probably only visible in the crude lines. Of course, a ME109 wouldn't really have the sloping part behind the cockpit...
No matter - I am happy you like it and that you have some good ideas. It is one of my favourite childhood builds :)
It has been in a lot of succesful dogfights... ;)
