Glad you enjoy it! This one actually led to some unexpected development: an official governmental Israeli agency found the image on the web, thought it was a legit Lockheed Martin project (despite my copyright on it) and used it to illustrate an article on their website. That was hilarious!

It looks like something out of that Alien movie (the one with the "face huggers" in it).

Didn't watch any of the Alien movies (not into that kinda stuff) but I suppose it can be seen as a compliment, so thanks a lot!

Well, can use "MQ" Designation instead :3 so it'll look more realistic. (Like MQ-9 Reaper the armed version of Predator)

As far as i know QF designation is for target drones.

"Q" as a main letter is for dedicated unmanned types. The "M" prefix differentiates the armed versions from the recce (R) ones.
"F" as a main letter is for dedicated fighter types. The "Q" prefix indicates that a previously manned type is used as an unmanned platform.
Previous QF- types were used as target drones, but if an unmanned variant of the F-35 was produced (and unless it received a whole different designation altogether) it would be called a QF-35 because the letter Q would be used as a modifier.
You can check on the web, there are a few sites on the subject as well as official DoD document that explain the system pretty well.

A done can take alot weight out of F35 design, no crew life support, no crew safety measures, extra space for carrying capacity, don't have to be made from the most expansive material, can be less stealthy, can be expandable, can save training cost of air time on an expansive plane, can use less savvy tech due to expandablity, can adopt the high low mix with F22. Can use numeric advantage against air defense.

In this fake aircraft "business" (I use the quotes because I don't make a single penny out of it all, of course!), I guess you've really "made it" when one of your images is mistaken as a genuine article... But when it's featured on a very serious Israeli government website to illustrate the cooperation between Lockheed Martin and Israel on R&D, it's simply HILARIOUS!!! itrade.gov.il/france/2014/01/3…
Thanks to Richard who wrote: "Several of my friends work at the F-35 plant. They find this a humorous aircraft. They've never seen one of these in the building." You bet they wouldn't!!

Interesting fan-made Photoshop (and for those curious, here is the image it was taken from: onlyhdwallpapers.com/wallpaper…, but I'd like to point out that even though you have the copyright symbol on this, you don't own the copyright. All of your image manipulations are based on products you don't own, derived from photographs that you didn't take, and are utilizing corporate logos that you don't own. It's ok to be a fan and create artwork, but you don't have a copyright.

Allow me to differ. Although I do not own the copyright on the various elements that go into the work, I definitely own the copyright to the personal creations that are made from them. Just like a photographer doesn't own the copyright for the buildings, the cars and the shop signs that appear in his photos, but his photos are nonetheless his. Copyright law protects my work to the extent that if someone reused any of my images without permission for commercial purposes and I could prove I'm the author, I could sue that person. That has nothing to do with all the elements that go into it (for which, of course, the respective copyright owners could also get nasty about my using them... except it's not a commercial use, it's clearly presented as works of fiction, and a simple message asking to remove the work is usually the first normal step they'd go for).
I recently had a shop owner remove one of my works which had been printed illegally and placed in a frame his shop window next to a sign that said "photos for sale: 4 euros/framed:12 euros. The guy tried to tote the same old argument that I don't own the stuff, but his arguments didn't hold for long.

Your work here is really cool . The day of the manned fighter is over. I expect the F-35 to be the last one. The QF-35 makes more sense.

What's the advantage of even having drones as dogfighters? War is supposed to be terrifying and teach us a lesson at the cost of human life. Using drones is like turning war into a video game.

What you are saying, basically, is that war MUST kill people otherwise it teaches us nothing? Then tell me what have the two World Wars taught us about not waging war any longer? Not very effective, eh? Wars do not exist because of man's urge to fight. Indeed, international sports have considerably reduced the warlike appetites of many by offering regular occasions to beat the neighboring countries and humiliate them... Wars exist because some leaders up there in their bubble are pissed off/jealous/bored for various reasons and at various people, and use their population/pilots/scientists as servants and/or cannon fodder to satisfy their whims. If they can crush their rivals and shed less blood in the process, then I'm all for it.

That's what war war is. Is teaches us its severity. If no human life is lost then what is the meaning of war because that's what war is.

War is meaningless by essence. It make me sick when people try to find some meaning or justification in it.
Ideally speaking (and of course I know this is impossible), war should not exist... and it certainly would not exist if human beings elevated above their basest instincts of domination, jealousy, hatred and so forth and behave like the spiritual beings they were meant to be.
I do like the technology behind aviation, but not the fact that aircraft are used to kill. And I will never see any beauty or redeeming virtue in war, sorry.

I don't support or have any justification in it. It's just the way war has always been fought. Unless you want to fight a math war or war of the minds. I wish we all would behave in a manner that says we aren't trying to kill each other with weapons of any kind. Wether it be Nuclear, biological, or chemical. But lets hope in the future that humanity will learn enough from their mistakes to not make them ever again, especially in 5000 years whenever we colonize space in the future; if we live. But then again at type II civilization status there is no way that species could become extinct.

So is this photoshopped or did you actually render your own aircraft? It looks sweet! Have you done a UCAV version of the F-22?

Photoshopped, like all of my imaginary aircraft or just about. I have done the F-35, the F-18, the Su-27 and the MiG-29, but no F-22 yet... Could be interesting. Thanks for dropping by! And please make sure to visit my gallery if you like imaginary aircraft, as I have over 100 of them there!
