I wanted to build a minifig-scale air/space fighter that was as small as possible while still looking "fly-able". The wings fold over the top for an even smaller profile. Gonna finish the cockpit and play around with different colors as soon as a couple Bricklink orders come in. Hopefully, I'll be using several of these little guys in a larger upcoming project. Hint: carrier.
With wings folded.
Size comparison between the S/A-38 and my Viper MK7.

This is outstanding! Its hard to build a small craft for a carrier. Ive been experimenting with the same idea myself. Is there enough room for a minifig in that cockpit?
Right now, it fits a minifig without a helmet; once I get my bricklink order, it'll comfortably fit a helmeted minifig. I'm using parts #41764 and 41765 for the bottom of the cockpit at the moment; once the order comes in, I'll be using part #43713, which will provide 2-plates-worth more of vertical room inside the cockpit.
