[Space?] Valkyrie UAV

I'm not sure where he belongs, but here's the Valkyrie UAV.

I recently watched Terminator 3, and the adorable little hunter-killers really caught my eye.

That's all folks. The rest of the pics aren't very noteworthy, but if you want to see them, you can go here Thanks for looking, and tell me what you think!

The detailing looks good, and the design is blocky yet rather neat; the more I look at it, the more I like it. Colour scheme works well, too.

However, I don't really like the look of the large engines on the wing tips and the little ones on tail. The shape of the large ones just doesn't appeal to me; they have somewhat uneven look as majority of the mass is under the wing. Adding more mass to the other parts of the engines - so that they would be sylinder-shaper, perhaps - might be recommended.
The problem with the little engines is that they don't really fit there. They look pretty much too chubby to fit with the general look of the robot. Something more aerodynamic and sleek might do the trick better.

I see your point, I'll certainly try to make the engines a bit sleeker.
