    If I were tasked to design for the third Transformers film I would see to it to include this guy. As a child I was
    in love with the conical shaped heads and over the top wing designs. Admittedly Thrust and Dirge had
    cooler names, but as far as translating the original plane in to something by today's standards I can't in good
    conscious say that those two would ever truly be "in disguise."

    At any rate, here's my design. To see it in better resolution simply right click and "view image"

    Here's the alt mode courtesy of google images.

    My thanks to Mr. Nizzi and all those here at TFW for putting this contest together. I had a blast participating.

    Regards,

    Ian

    nice, can we see an alt mode pic?

    I love the design especially the head it's great but I wish there was some more color in the piece so it's not all grays and such.

    That's really well done, and I love the head design, and overall look, but I'd like to see more jet-parts on him.

    Holy crap dude, nice work. If you hadn't said you made that I would have assumed it was actual concept art from the film's artists.

    Good execution there !

    But...his structure looks very similar to Skywarp from the ROTF game.

    Yeah, I've loved a lot of artwork people've done but this is almost on par with ILM, certainly a notch above the unfinished promotional images they put out. I'm not seeing the face well, but I think it would animate on screen quite nicely.

    Great work Ian.

    I especially like his jaws - looks a bit like a Predator.

    Best regards, Clu

    Awesome ! When I saw it was a F-18 and an alien-like design, this reminded me of the "Independance Day" movie. lol The head also resembles the aliens from that movie too.

    The skill that went into making this is without a doubt jaw dropping; it really does look like it is good enough to be an actual concept piece for the movie, and I absolutely LOVE the robot mode! The jet mode parts really aren't too recognizeable though; I can kinda see what part becomes what, but it's mostly guess work unfortunately. It would work if you make him Cybertron Ramjet though, since he does look like he'd transform into an alien jet, rather then an Earthern one.

    Good Job, but The Real Ramjet is dead in comics maybe you can rename as Sky Shadow, or something.
