    I was thinking of an F-104 derivative concept which has a bigger wing: I'm curious if anybody is willing to help.

    I can furnish baseline drawings to work with

    A plane, or a spacecraft that is inspired by the F-104? The latter might be kind of interesting, actually ... ;).

    Would this upgrade it from Lawn Dart to Planet Dart?

    It would be a modified F-104, basically a larger wing and a slight change in anhedral (the angle at which the wing is canted down)

    There are lots of F-104's for free download from 3-d Warehouse. You should be able to easily modify the wing in Sketchup (which is also free)

    I hope that conceptual plane/spacecraft won't crash as often as the Widowmaker - sorry, I meant Starfighter ;)

    1. I don't have any 3D program

    2. What's sketchup?

    Interesting brain fart. :)

    I think it would look even better, if the wings were a little longer, and had some small sensor pods or something at the end.

    Yeah, it's very much a WIP - I was also thinking about the pods on the ends of the wings, just because I'm used to seeing the F-104 with them ;).

    I'm sure I can find a way to justify it - maybe it's the impulse drive ... ;)
