    Those are antennae in front? And totally blacked out. Nice. Maybe a touch of red in the cockpit to reflect the instruments on the pilot?

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.

    Gary, those are radar antennas.
    The thing with the night fighters was stealth. Exhaust stacks were covered to hide visually any flame or heat. Glass was kept as clean as possible with no scratches to prevent reflections of light. Instrument panel lights were turned off. They found the best colour for night fighters was gloss black. You wanted to approach the other aircraft unseen.

    Nah, they're not radar antennae, the four hands are for sneaking up and catching the other naughty aircraft while saying coochy-coo.

    A complete change of mood from many of your other creations. If you wanted "sinister and deadly," you achieved it in spades.
