    This is fantastic! Would it be okay if I used your Firestreak missiles for a build I’m planning on uploading soon? I can’t seem to find any other good ones

    Awesome plane, by the way. The realistic livery on the alternate version is superb.

    Well, when I quit I had to cancel it. Then when I did my soft-return, StrikeFighter and some others had already filled the power-void left by the SPW’s absence. Plus I really don’t have the motivation or the time for it right now. Maybe I’ll do something for SR2 when it comes to mobile, but that’s a definite maybe.

    Im still blown away by how well you build without using 10000 parts, plus the E.E lightning is pure sex lol

    @BogdanX Ok, although conversion of markings aren't actually that simple it is a very accurate build for a "fun plane "!

    @BogdanX No problem! I've just spent the day working around a Lightning F.53 so it's great to see a SP version. One point though: the F.53 was the export version that never saw service with the RAF, yet yours is in RAF markings.
