It has similar looking canard wings.

The general design seems very similar to it IMHO but either way it looks great

Nice (slang)

These types of planes already exist, the problem is that there is still a slight lag between the drone and the operator which puts the drone at a major disadvantage. Search up QF-16, which is the drone version of the F-16. while it is capable of performing as well as a manned F-16, it is currently being used as a target drone instead.

Would the drone version still need the cockpit canopy? I'd imagine it just needs some good equipment and cameras on the extreme ends of the plane and that's it, right?

Great sculpting, by the way!

Yes it would, that's where they put the radar and antenna.

Radar and antennae can be put in much more efficient shapes. The canopy on a fighter plane basically has two functions -- offering the pilot a view around and allowing him to bail out -- at the cost of a less aerodynamic shape of the fighter. A drone equipped with cameras and radar needs neither.
Personally, I wouldn't even put the cameras where the pilot used to be, but on all of the extreme ends of the fuselage so that the 'pilot' has a 360-degree stereoscopic picture of what happens around him. 

Still looks cool though!

JAS is an acronym standing for "fighter bomber recon"

the fighter is called the JAS-39 Gripen, (swedish for gryphon/griffon)

calling it a JAS is like calling an american plane an 'F"...

knowing is half the battle. :)

Well I live in Sweden so I know what it means. However, in daily talk here this aircraft is often referred to simply as JAS.

This was so close to real that I did think that it existed, but then I read the description and the excitement went away. : P
