Love it! but get ready for some Aerospace logic... the side mounted missiles are a big no no, any noob pilot would aim for em. why not mount em under the gun pods?

Side mounted missiles are normal practice =)

Oh I know they are, its just that non of those aircraft had canards... during testing the canards caused turbulence for a launching missile.

I hope you can tell im not trying to troll you, its just ive worked on jets and learned this in my studies.

About turbulence... As I know, turbulence flow will be after canard, but I placed missiles below canard...
I don't sure, but I think, that flow condition below canard are same, that below wing... there often placed missiles.

hmmm... makes sense. but every air craft has its flaws, with the SF-383 we wont know till the design is tested in an air tunnel. ^_^

Something strangely organic about those lines.

Are the gun-pods canted slightly inward to make up for how far out they are?

Side mounted guns in WW2 were set to cross each others path at a set distance, this is called "gun convergence". A good example would be this.

When dog-fighting, to maximize weapon effectiveness, pilots usually take the shots at exactly the convergence range to ensure that both rounds hits the target at the exact spot...

That was pretty much was I was referring, yeah.

Perspective makes it look that way... but...
for wing mounted guns, giving them a small amount of adjustability was normal in WW2 designs, at least. That way, you could determine how far in front of the aircraft the trajectories converged.
