The paper is concerned with conceptual modeling of the new aircraft based on bionical forms. Search visual-graphic calculations of the model under development are presented. 3D modeling of aircraft constructional parts were carried out according to the detailed designs. For 3D surfaces modeling the Koons method is used. Rendering scenes of shaded 3D model of aircraft is presented.
