MiG-25P "Foxbat-A" FINAL

14.1k F104Deathtrap  2.4 years ago

Who puts mudflaps on a 2000 mph jet? The Soviets, that's who. She wasn't agile, but she was the fastest fighter ever to spit fire. Here's my tribute to the stainless steel MiG monster!

This is my tribute to the fastest, craziest fighter ever built.

FEATURES:
Handmade exhaust nozzles, air brakes and landing gear
Realistic scale, paint and performance
Mach 3 top speed, 2200mph
50,000 pounds of wet thrust

CONTROLS:
Left hand slider controls takeoff/landing/trim flaps
(1) Activate afterburners
(2) Deploy braking parachutes
(7) Jettison (dumbfire) all missiles

High altitude, mach-3 interceptor. Low maneuverability, unually high stall speed. Best performance with afterburner on above 20,000 feet. Best landing speed 300mph with flaps fully deployed. Hit the brakes and the chutes when you get to the edge of the runway and whatever you do, KEEP THAT NOSE UP!

    @shipster Thanks! My first project. I really should remake her, I didn't know much about handling when I built this.

    @ThatoneMArtist Your english is fine, I just needed more information.

    This was my first upload. The plane is far from perfect, I want to make a new one that flies more realistically. But I did spend almost a month building it.

    I started by collecting data from wikipedia about the size, performance and shape of the plane. I collected 30-40 photographs of the plane from different angles, showing all little details like air-brakes, intakes, etc. Then I carefully resized a schematic diagram of the plane so that each 20 pixels of the diagram was one block in the game and used Microsoft Paint to measure everything as I finally started to build.

    @F104Deathtrap how did you build this interceptor? What was your aid building it? Did you build it while looking at a 3d Mig-25P model or did you just make up your mind because it is so damn perfect?.(i'm not native so sorry if english is little broken).

    @jamesPLANESii Hey, thanks man. IF you really like her, I recommend to change the primary wings to "semi" and maybe make the nose wheels steerable. I would update this one, but I posted it as "Final" and I hate false advertising.

    Whaley crap I have no idea how I missed this!

    DOH! I forgot to make the nose strut steerable! Also, the wings should be semi-sym not symmetric. It's so hard to walk away from tweaking a design...

    @TheBroadside True. In theory, it could be made to go almost as fast as the SR-71, but the heat would destroy the plane. The Foxbat, just like the Valkyrie and Blackbird before it, was soon overshadowed by slower, more versatile designs. But for a while there, I bet she was one hell of a ride!

    Still not as fast as a Blackbird.

    @MrDoolittle And it came from a member of the "Old guard" the first builders. Youd expect big projects.

    @MrDoolittle The Venator would be below the Spotlights.

    @TheOwlAce this is good build but would put at the same level as that Venator? This deserves the spot light for sure but so does that Venator.
