Looks like HBO's  Mid7night is quite the industrious fellow.  And that industry is aerospace.

"Y'know that little jet you see flying overhead in ODST?  Like anything else with wings, I wanted to fly it!  Thankfully, I found some close-up shots of it over on HBO, so I started modeling.  Finally I'm nearing completion.

I modeled the shape in AC3D, but the real magic happens in X-Plane.  That's where you turn ordinary shapes into things that fly!  Here's where the progress stands thus far:

3D Model = 100%
Flight Model = 95%
Texture Mapping = 80%

Along with texture maps, X-Plane now supports Normal Maps, so i
generated some rough ones just to test it out.  Here's the results:

Looks like ubald unleashed another render over at HBO. This one's a WIP and part of a much larger collection that will ultimately serve as a webcomic. But you should check it out now.
