A new fighter model costs 100,000?

The year's salary of two 3D artists?
Every new fighter includes not just the exterior model, but the interior as well, plus the cockpit, plus whatever new physics modeling needs to be done, plus ... well, hey, Chris Roberts himself said it. Many man-hours spread across many employees ... it adds up.
I do think that a well seasoned 3D artist (especially one that would be worth 100k a year) could churn out such a thing in less than a month.
Just look how fast Tobias Richter does his high poly meshes of all the Trek starships.
A movie aiming low should not be praised for hitting that target.
