Supermarine Attacker FB.2

Auto Credit Based on Tang0five's Supermarine Attacker

Ok so the Supermarine Attacker never quite made it to the Suez Crises but this was an opportunity to tidy the rough edges somewhat and to have a stab at invasion stripes. Those stripes took me ages to get right and I probably won’t be doing that again in a hurry.... changes listed below, controls as per the original.

Working guns!
Suez Stripes!
Improved nose and tail shape to real thing
Cockpit canopy has been improved
More detail added
Rudolph the red nose has gone (thanks for pointing that out Rambo!)
Pitch control has been altered to give more realistic rate of turn.

This will land on the beast and stop well short of dropping in the drink - and that was me well and truly missing the middle wire!
On approach have flaps down (not that they do very much) throttle set about 10% and aim for 110mph for touching down.

Happy landings!


“BOLTER!”


My first attacker on the right in comparison. Built over a year ago if I remember rightly.

    @Tang0five that is not my harrier.... my Harrier flies perfectly, can hover at fixed point.
    That kid took my harrier, put some weapons on it (from a weapons pack post), somehow screwed the flight model.
    He refuses to credit or use successor system, claiming that is his build.
    I told him nicely how give credit, he removed my comment.
    Probably a kid, not a mature person, so i won't agitate him or bully him. Some of my friends are making fun of him, read the comments... I told them to stop, but they love to troll :)

    Scot? As in Scottish? Im pretty sure that in the event of a war type thing breaking out the RAF should have us covered? @Tang0five @RedRoosterII

    First of all, thank you all for you support - most touching! Secondly, I feel that the poor old, rather unsuccessful attacker has representation in the community at last! Thanks again all!
