The opt looks cool; really futuristic (as in, generations post NJO). It looks kinda like the Z-105 "Thud" Headhunter, with all those curves.
Texturing still needs a little work around the ****pit though; the whole "tinted" transparisteel look doesn't really work. Try adding a "lip" around the canopy's edge, and a frame on the canopy itself.
