First off can I start by telling you all that...you've been fooled! Believe it or not despite my post saying I was not leaving...I actually did! And have been on holiday ever since! You're all shocked, believe me I know, you must feel so stupid rnight now after being completely unable to see through my tricks.
With that out of the way, some of you could maybe tell that I've been inactive even longer than that..mainly because I've been working on some shit!
EA-6b Prowler v2
Making an entirely new prowler to replace my old one, this time to accurate blueprint scale and proportion,
While remaking this it really gave away how off I was with the last one
(no back landing gear just yet)
(You vs the guy she tells you not to worry about)
( this time I promise not to put a gun on the tail fin....still regretting that mistake lol)
AV-8B Harrier II (NA)
But the main focus and the project I've been working on for the longest time, would be my Av8b Harrier night attack variant:
NOTE: This is still a work in progress, details such as the tail are still not completely finished
It's still somewhat of a WIP but will have a near full recreation of one of its liverys, fully custom landing gear, air brakes, control surfaces + flaps, working ejection seat and an opening and closing canopy
First person hud
Of course a replica also needs its weapons..
Xml modded to have near identical stats (or as close as I can guess) to their real life counterparts
- Fitted with retractable high drag fins that deploy after launching to slow the bombs speed*
Aim 9 sidewinder
Fire and forget close range missile with a high top speed
high damage air to ground missile
A configurable onetime use nitro system
A simple system shrunk down into a small capsule, involves smashing a vtol engine with a detacher on a delay, the vtol engine provides thrust to nozzles and the length of the nitro is changed by increasing or decreasing the delay on the detacher.
While it sounds finicky on paper in practice it's very reliable even at high speed.
I've used it for such things as:
This fully automatic multi-stage rocket
This system has also been very useful for high speed ejection seats, And I've fitted it onto my Upc stencil whatsitname seat.
Also I've begun testing something...
