Hey, Tomcatter, had a HUGE picture of an F-14 A on my wall, even managed to draw a few pics of my own! Tomcat was THE plane that got me interested in aviation, ahh the memories!!!! Then the VIPER took over!!!!!! :D

I'm really agree with Tomcatter...The F-14 is one of the most beautiful fighters...

How about this one!!!

Huge bias here, but the Tornado has always been my favourite, especially with the ultra low-level tactics used in the first PGW. It's a shame that the Eurofighter just looks a bit too, um, girly for me...

Other all-time fave is the MiG-29:

Awesome pic Swedge! That's one of the best pics I've ever seen of the Valkyrie, except possibly another one I saw of the B-70 taking off in full blower. Way cool.

The B-70 is one of the prettiest planes I've ever seen. I'm still kinda partial to the 106 and the Tigershark.

Good pics of the Tornado too catisfit. I always liked its nickname "Baby F-111".

Beers and MiGs were made to be pounded!

I always thought the Tornados "tails" were too fat making them Ugly!! i think they would have looked much better with twin smaller tails.. also i am a big fan of the F-106 as well... It just looks "right" and the F-104 is one of the coolest looking aircraft, matter of fact to me its the ONLY aircraft that looks BETTER with ext tanks attached!! the wing tip ones any ways.. makes it look powerful.. B-58 is anuther cool looking aircraft.. Mirage IV is cool looking too..

The F-14 Tomcat has always been my favorite aircraft, and it will continue to be so, I don't know what it is about it, but it just looks so pretty...
Second and third would be the F/A-18 Hornet and the F-16 Falcon.
Now I would have included the AH-64, but I'm not sure that counts. :P

I've got a soft spot for it too! I'm building a 1/72 model of an MFG1 Tornado IDS right now, with plans for many more. I've already built an ODS Gr.1 and a ETPS one with the Raspberry Ripple scheme.

I had always thought the Boeing "Bird of Prey" technology demonstrator looked rather interesting, or at least unique.

To those who are interested, take a look at this link, there's a video of the aircraft in flight located there.
