Neodymium Magnetic Balls (@1332) - Canard Fighter Craft v02 ... An oldie but a goodie design from 2010 ... v02 - Added wing engine boosters/weapons (2 x ((20 x 6-ball hex rings) + 1-ball))) ... Started to play with quadrilateral and single strand layering (with an aircraft in mind) and came up with this design. It started out with a central two layered strand. Then for each layer outward, an inter-meshed (non-parallel) single strand chain (layer) was added to the sides. Then the next layer was added on top. Then repeat alternating top and bottom layers to create the staggered layering.
Wing layering follows same the alternating top and bottom layering scheme radiating outward with symmetric wing lines. The front canard fins are smaller versions (only on the bottom layer). Top layer is a triangle overlay. The body layering was done by adding parallel sections on top of the central core and adding inter-mesh chain strands along the outside. The cockpit section was done using tiered stacked double strands with triangle endpoints. The engine tubes are 2 x (6-hex rings x 12). The tail fins are modified stacked extended hexagons. Think of building this one chain strand at a time like the rigid stick method ... Originally designed Nov 11, 2010 and uploaded to flickr.
