Default Northrop F-5 E

Just started this afternoon
Until now I ve only finished the basic shape, lots of details to add...

Btw: Is there a proper way to get sharp edges in a subdivided (preview)object?

Cool plane
You preserve edges sharpness by enclosing them with other (new) edges.
That also goes for materials boundaries ...

Very nice work. It looks just as I remember it from when I was in the military. I was stationed on a F-5 skvadron

It looks very well. Was it made from one object ?

One thing you can do is "Commit subdivision", which converts the subdivision in real polygons. After that you can sharpen the edges as you like it.

Great images!

One way to make a sharp corner with subdivisions is to add extra vertices (Vertex->Insert-Vertex) and reposition them.
